Mom and her birthday present

Mom turns 94 in two days so I brought her birthday present with me and gave it to her today.  In case you forgot what I was giving her it was a table runner for her table in her room.

Here it is on her table.  It's a little off center in the picture but she thought it was a perfect fit.

She didn't want me to take her picture, of course, but she just has to suffer through it since I'm not sure how many more opportunities I will have to take her picture.  Before I left she decided she wanted a copy of the picture though so I guess I was forgiven.


I probably should have paid more attention to her outfit but she looked warm and like taking pictures of animals, you can't waste too much time before you shoot because they will move.  Sure enough, seconds after I snapped the picture she was rolling backwards looking for her Sunday Morning Soda.  Finally we found it (like it is on the table already mom) and put a Happy Birthday napkin under it to protect her new table runner. It looking this clean didn't last long.  My the time I left she had it covered up with "stuff".  :)  A sign that she loved it and it would stay on the table for a couple of days at least.

Thanks Sue. I am thinking of putting together three more blocks for another one for her for Christmas. She likes to change them a lot.

Lol - old people, small children and animals - grubby, intransigent little sods. Love the runner!
