Moms. We all have one or we are one. In the US, today is Mother's Day and it's a beautiful day to curl up with some knitting while surrounded by family. The only Mother's Day tradition that my I've ever held up is making things for my mom. She's always been my biggest supporter and fan and no matter if it was macaroni glued to some paper or a hand made spa cloth with some lovely soaps, she is always so pleased with anything that I've ever made. (Even if, truthfully, some of the things were pretty bad. Lol, she still thought that they were wonderful and always told me what an artist I was before she set the item out for display.)
(The picture you see before you is a reenactment, no coloring books were harmed in the making of this post.)
Now that I'm a mom, I completely get it. Everything that my little Cairo makes for me is beautiful just because he made it and he's always so proud to give it to me. This is the 3rd year that I get to celebrate being his mom so I wanted to share my happiness with all of you. For the next 24 hours (till 11:59 pm CST on 5/14/17) all of my self-published patterns will be 30% off, no coupon required. Pick out a pattern and make something nice for yourself, for your mom or for a mom-like figure in your life. (You can always wrap up the pattern with some yarn and tell her that there's some assembly required.)
I hope that you enjoy the day and that you get to spend it with your loved ones. Happy crafting!
