#Mother's Day Proclamation

In honor of the Mother's Day Holiday, I've been looking around and found a few bits and bites I found very interesting.

Philadelphia activist Anna Jarvis (1864-1948) came up with the idea for “Mother’s Day” at the beginning of the 20th century as a tribute to her mother. 

On May 10, 1908, in what is considered the first Mother’s Day celebration, she sent 500 carnations to Andrews Methodist Episcopal Church, her mother’s church in Grafton, W.Va. (now a National Historic Landmark since 1992). 

The event received an enormously positive response, and after extensive lobbying and letter-writing efforts, President Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation on May 9, 1914, declaring the second Sunday of May “a public expression of our love and reverence for the mothers of our country.” 

Wishing my Mom a wonderful Mother's Day today and all the Mom's under the sun!

#WorldsBiggestStocking One Piece Finished

So happy to share my finished piece to add to the wonderful #WorldsBiggestStocking project!
As you can see I used the Corner to Corner method or C2C. I am new to crochet so I love learning and I find that YouTube/Learn to Crochet Video Series is a wonderful tool!

Since my husband had a stroke last August I am now no longer working outside of my home. (Not that staying home is not work!) I find that the Crochet Community in whole is some of the friendliest and generous of heart, time and knowledge. I am making some wonderful connections with so many talents!

I have started on my second donation, and I enjoy each and every stitch.  When it is completed I will be getting back to my first BIG WIP... If you can help or just help to spread the word about this huge effort, it
would be so gratefully appreciated!
