Happy Birthday Mama!

My Mother's birthday is on Monday. I wanted to make something special just for her, and have been thinking about it for awhile. I bought some Elvis fabric nearly a year ago thinking I would make her a pillow or a lap quilt using that...well, that did not happen. Instead I turned to my crafty passion of crochet and made her a purse!

Here are the photos:

The clip I added to easily find keys

Finishing Mom's birthday gift is not the only thing I have been up to today...I also made these!

Four of the six phone holsters that have been ordered.  I just need to find the perfect button for the one on the left...

Through it all, I have my cozy companion Max to keep me company (the kiddos are asleep). Max usually takes advantage of my empty lap while I blog. Smart cat! Sorry, but as soon as he saw the camera he refused to look in my direction. He is quite camera shy!


  1. She did love it! She took it with her to her birthday dinner even.

  2. I need your phone number. FB isn't letting me into messaging and I don't have any addresses for you. I sent something to Pete's work, don't know what else to do. I only have 6 or 7 of my old contacts. Hope you read this.
