Mother's Day

I hope all you mom's out there had a great day yesterday. I presented my mother with her gloves (will get a picture later, we forgot she was so excited). I found some very pretty elegant tissue paper and double wrapped them, with a ribbon etc, presentation is needed for these gloves. I had blocked them, used some of my bra soap to wash them in, they came out so soft and even were a little roomier, you were right Karen. She kept unwrapping and then when she saw them she looked at me and said these are mine? I told her I dont red you do, so I told her the story about how my yarn did not work, could not find anything for me so decided to make her a pair. She cried and tried them on, held them up in the restaurant for everyone to see. She was happy. Then when she drove home from my house, she put them on cos her steering wheel was hot. I am going to make myself a black/white pair to go with my black leather coat and I figure some other colors combos as well, I love the yellow/blue pair, matches my guest bathroom. I did find some long ceramic hand stands on ebay and used them to dry mom's gloves; they worked perfect.

It is so great to see everyone's gloves, the possibilities are endless on the color combos. I hope you all are having as much fun as I did. Cathy, hurry up and start.
