Mother’s Day is almost over. Today I finished and posted another item to my Etsy shop. While I finished the wedding skirt, took the pictures and added the skirt to the shop, I thought of my mother throughout the day. She would have been one of my biggest fans, encouraging me as I design and create my things for this virtual store. She has cheered me on since I stitched my first outfit when I was 11-years old. She admired my illustrations when I majored in fashion design, promoted my fashion shows, helped me hand bead lace for clients’ wedding dresses, and proudly wore my designs. This is the fourth Mother’s Day since she died. I miss her.
