Groovy, Mama!

Hi Again! I know what you're thinking, she just posted yesterday, and yet here she is again today!
 I know, right?!? It's crazy.
Having this new laptop to zip around the Internet is quite inspriring. It reminds me of that Mazda commercial... "Zoom, zoom, zoom!"

So yeah, back in September I had a little something-something in the works for my mom's birthday which was in early October, just about the same time as the "great computer crash of 2010".

Want to see? Ok!
Hmm, what could this little package hold?

Bunting! Tye-dye bunting!!
Because, you know, every mom needs 12 feet of tye-dye bunting.
It's a fact. Ask your mom.
(Uh-oh... my garden doesn't look so nice in this picture. Look away, look away!)

My mom likes to camp, a lot. And when she does, she likes to hang bright tapestries in and around her campsite. It's really cool & groovy looking. I love it, especially when I pull into the campground after she's all set up, it's really easy to find her campsite. I made this bunting for her to use for whatever she likes, but I think it would look especially cool hanging in the woods.

I stitched up this wee little tag and sewed it to the backside one of the flags.

Oooh, swirly colors!

Mom really loved her bunting, I think she got a big kick out of it.

On her actual birthday she and I went to the Northern California Renaissance Faire, huzzah!

Happy birthday, beautiful, groovy Mama! I love you!
Hope you had as much fun as I did.

Love your bunting. I feel your mom's love for camping. We camp ALL the time and hang cute bunting from out tent. But your bunting is awesome, the most awesome. Did you tie dye them yourself? Happy Birthday to your mom. Great gift!!
