I just wanted to take a few minutes to tell you (and show you) some of the wonderful things that my wonderful mother has made.
My and my awesome mom, Louisa
 She is making all three of us matching hats for the traditional arts music festival that we attend every fall, the Wheatland Music Festival. It is a awesome festival that is full of lots of rainbows and tie-dye.
Ran's hat is the first one to be finished. 
The boy is loving his hat soooo that he has worn it every day since Grandma Gigi gave it to him - even though it has been over 90 degrees every day.

Here are a few of the other fabulous she has made for Ran over the years.  One of the things I think she particularly excels at is making fun and funky hats.
Ran is his first hat from Gigi - only a few days old

A few months old in a fabulously funky hat 
My favorite sweater set from mom!
Ran's favorite sweater - his dragon sweater

Last year my brother and my cousin both had little girls for my mom to knit for.  And WOW has she made some beautiful sweater sets.

And I almost forgot to mention that mom is a wonderful seamstress.  She taught me to sew as a child and made most of my clothes as a child.  She has made Ran some wonderful clothes, like the great jacket she made for Ran a few years ago.

Mom, thanks for all your wonderful talents!
