Making an Early Christmas Present

As you know, I love weaving as much as quilt making.  My mom is always complaining that she is cold.  So I decided to pull out some fuzzy yarn and make a nice shawl for her.  I am saying it is her Christmas present since she told me "don't buy anything for me this year, because you know I can't get out to buy presents."    Thursday when I gave her the shawl, I said "This is your Christmas present.  I didn't buy anything - I made it from things I already had."  That seemed to satisfy her. 

Here are  pictures of the shawl. 



I hope she enjoys wearing this and that it keeps her snuggly warm.

That shawl is so much nicer than anything you could have bought for your mom. I'm sure she will love it.

Something home made is always beautiful.
