Happy Birthday Mom!

I made this for my mom. A friend gave me this frame, which was perfect! My mom just got chickens, so I found a scrap of the fabric from Cyan's quilt that had the chickens on it and used that for the background... then I printed out a Mr Rogers quote (my mom's favorite) on some white cardstock and placed it in there with an off white bit of framing around it. I think it will be great for her kitchen and hope she loves it!

It reads:

In the external scheme of things, shining moments are as brief ast he twinkling of an eye, yet such twinklings are what eternity is made of - moments when we human beings can say "I love you", "I'm proud of you," "I forgive you," "i am grateful for you." That's what eternity is made of: Invisible, imperishable good stuff.
~ Fred Rogers
