Now I usually try and keep this space crafting only and keep as much of my personal life out of it as I can. But since this is relevant to why I made this project I am allowing myself to share a tiny bit. :)
5 years ago, on October 29th, which happened to be the day before my youngest daughter's 1st birthday and 2 days before her favorite holiday, my mom was diagnosed with stage 4 renal cancer. The outlook was NOT good at all. Tough times, people, tough times. 5 years later, she is still here, and she is my hero. She has gone through a lot and I love her so very much.
I decided to surprise and make her something to celebrate this amazing 5 years.
I went with a Wiksten Tank because I have made quite a few of them before, including some for my mom, so I already know that she looks awesome in them.
And of course, I had to use my most favorite of the Halloween fabrics. Lizzy House's emoting ghosts print from Guising. This fabric just makes me happy. And I decided to do all the topstitching in a fun purple variegated thread.
I think that my mom will really like it when she opens up her mailbox and sees a surprise waiting for her!
Here is a little sneaky peek at what my next post will be about. Two words, my friends, In. Love.
