i heart my mom!

I think I've mentioned before that my mom is probably the person that had the most influence on my creativity as a kid.  She was always working on some kind of project, from sketching, crocheting and sewing, to translating German knitting patterns to use with her vintage knitting machine.

These days, she creates twig furniture from wood she collects from the forest that surrounds her house {cool huh?!}, and she still knits and crochets.  She submitted a couple of her latest stitched projects into the Red Heart Yarns Wednesday Night Stitching Challenge.
