Now that I look back at my life, I realize that my mom was really awesome.  She did teach me how to sew.  Sewing is a huge part of my life now.  She was just so critical.  When I would finish a project, she would look it over and then point out all of the things that could have been done better.  I remember cutting corners and doing things wrong on purpose just to piss her off.  I thought my ways were better. 

Years later, I am such the better seamstress because of the critical eye I have developed because of her.  She is one of my biggest fans now.  Every mothers day I make her a bag and I agonize over whether it will be good enough for her.  This is what I came up with... I almost trashed it and started over with something else just because the zipper section seemed a little wonky to me.  My husband told me I am nuts.  When I filled it up, I felt a little better about it. Here is to moms and Mothers Day and making me crazy.

Moms can really be a pain in the butt, but they are usually worth it!

I did already.  It is this bag on a smaller scale.

Beautiful bag!  Looks great!

My mom was very critical of me too, but I'd gladly listen to that nagging again.  My mom died in 94, I so miss her.
