Master Peso

Behold my most recent masterpiece! I made it for my mother's birthday last year.


It took patience, determination, and a very small hook. Each rose and leaf took about twenty minutes to finish, and each swirl took about a half hour.



I learned a lot from making it and I was so thrilled with the result I had trouble actually parting with it. I just wanted to keep it with me and show it to everyone I met up with and say, "look what I made!"

My mother loves it. Her initial response to it? "I didn't know you had doilies in you!"

Surprises all around.

Very, very nice! I'm sure your mother loved it. Give her my love and tell her I just received her last letter. Holidays have begun, so now I have time to sit and write.
