My Beautiful Mom

here we are at the community puzzle table
it's located by the main nurse's station
near the door to the garden
it's bright and cheerful
plenty of folks walking by
stopping to chat
we usually last less than 5 minutes here
these 1000 piece puzzles
are not for Mom
she tells me to get moving
I can come back and work on the puzzle
when there's nothing else to do
we really need an extra table
to lay out all the pieces...
having a good time
watching the hair dresser
race around getting all the clients hair done
she is amazingly fast
and everyone's hair looks great

I've been hand quilting this forever
or it just feels that way
one of those projects
Mom wanted to do but turned over to me
I leave it in her room
so I can pick it up in between placemats
Mom and the ladies love
watching me work on projects at the lunch table
these sweet faces
make everyone smile!
Hope you're having a good weekend
it's brutally cold here
so after a visit with Mom
I can come home, bundle up
then work on my little quilt prepping
ah, tis a gift to be simple!

that is a white mountain puzzle they also have 550 pieces that would be a bit easier.
You are a good daughter! and it is nice to have something for the hands to do when sitting.

Wonderful seeing your mom and seeing her happy, even though I know she has her moments;) I wish I lived closer, I tend to be a wiz at puzzles, haven't done them in years, the kitties would knock them over if I left them out, lol. I hope you can have some relax time and work on your projects, perfect day to stay inside.
