Lillian

I made this collage for my mom for Christmas. It's a collage of her mother, Lillian. The photos aren't of the grandma I remember (in my head, I remember my grandma looking like the current Queen Elizabeth or the former Queen mother) This is the elegant grandma Lillian who I didn't know. But I remember her likeing bluish greens, and that she loved to sew -- that's where I got my love of making stuff! So, really, this is the grandma I remember.

SHORT COMMENTS ARE NOT MY TALENT. i'M AFRAID THE WORDS TO TELL YOU HOW MUCH THIS MEANS TO ME WILL BUBBLE OVER AND TURN TO STEAM.
iT'S NATURAL TO APPRECIATE THE LOVE AND UNDERSTANDING BEHIND THIS, BUT i'M REALLY HAPPY THAT IN A SMALL WAY i'M ABLE TO APPRECIATE THE SKILL, CREATIVITY AND HARD WORK. tHANKS mARTHA,iT WAS A WOW WASN'T IT?
