You can ignore reality, but you cannot ignore the consequences of ignoring reality ~ Ayn Rand

The above jacket was made by my mom as a gift to me over 25 years ago. She appliqued all the pieces both by hand and by machine on a sweat shirt that she cut and made into a jacket. The sweat shirt is a size large, and has always been too big on me, but I love the jacket to pieces, and wear it once or twice a year. I want it to last forever :) My mom is 84, has Alzheimer's, and does not remember making it.
I have a denim shirt that she purchased and hand embroidered a gorgeous peacock on the back of it. It was a birthday gift from her. I will have to model it one of these days too. My mom took so much pride in her work, and it showed then and still does today.
Enjoy the weekend everyone. I am so glad it is Friday.
