My mother has never liked having her picture taken, so I have very few. This one, however, is my favorite. It was taken by my dad on a rainy day on Monhegan Island, Maine. My parents went there for their honeymoon almost 48 years ago and have gone back often. Even so, this photo must be 20 years old. She is working on a Hawaiian appliqué quilt block with an island cat curled up next to her. What a cozy scene. Happy Mother's Day, Mom! And Happy Mother's Day to all moms who continue passing along a love of needlework to their children.
