I want to say “Hello” to all my new followers from my mom’s blog, Joyful Expressions. Getting high praises from my mom is a BIG deal!
I was looking through some photos and had to share some fun pictures. My mother has always sewn, as long as I can remember. She used to make me scrubs to wear to the hospital for work. Back then, I didn’t have a specific colored uniform and could wear whatever I wanted, otherwise, I bet she would still be making me scrubs. My mom loves prints and you can do a lot of fun prints with scrubs.
Here is a cute picture of some outfits my mom made for my boys, John and Jacob. This photo is from 23 years ago! It’s summer and I’m pretty sure she made this for July 4th. I like they have the same theme and colors, but still unique for each boy.
Here is the quilt she made me. We have a chicken coop with chickens and lots of fresh eggs. Mom made me a chicken quilt. Isn’t it pretty. For you quilters, check out the feathered stitching pattern on the quilt. You can see it well around the center chicken. It’s hanging on the wall in our sunroom.
This is one of my favorites too. My husband, Len, is a retired Fire Fighter. She made this for our first grandson, Xander. Here is Max, of course. He is always around in everybody’s business.
We had a GREAT day yesterday and welcomed 11 new puppies from Crystal.
Here are some of our pups that have grown up. You may remember Mom’s dogs, Jackie and Josie. They were some of our Goldendoodles.
We get tons of compliments on our dogs. It has a lot to do with their DNA and great parents. I like to think those puppies are imprinted with the magic and love that is our home and it cements all the ingredients for a great dog.
Have a blessed day!
