MyMomma: Simplicity 1589

Look who retired on Wednesday, yes my Momma.  I am so proud of her.  After 34 faithful years of service to Orlando Health, she has retired.  She is now free to come over to my home anytime she wants and command what she wants, and I don't mind at all. 

When my Momma ask me for something, I jump to it.  I don't think it is anything this women could ask that I would walk across hot rocks to do.  She is an amazing woman, who I hope to one day even be half the women she is.  She makes me so proud of her.  I salute you Mom.   

I decided to Make Mom something pretty for her because she's such a Divas as you can see:

When I first got Simplicity 1589, I knew I wanted to make a couple of these for the summer.  The look so easy peasy and summery.  I bought this beautiful remnant, a little less than a yard and a half of a Animal Print Challis, a few years ago. I thought it would make a pretty scarf.  Threw it in my remnant bin and never really thought much more about it, until I decided what I wanted to make my Momma for her retirement gift.   She loves it. 

Happy Sewing!!!
