Merry's 96th Birthday!


Happy 96th Birthday, Mom!





A couple of months ago, I took my Mom, Merry Silber, out antique-ing!

We came upon a velvet Crazy Quilt with a big circle near the center. Embroidered in that circle? "1914" ~ the year of my Mom's birth!


Mom has been collecting quilts for about 45 years ~ and she loves it. So my gift to her could not have made her happier.


Her actual day of birth was July 10, 1914...


I hope you enjoy the quilt, too!

Thanks for tuning in...
