When my mother’s birthday popped up on the horizon, I thought–what a perfect opportunity to finally try to make these. This post will be a spoiler for her if she reads my blog as often as I think she does. Surprise Mom! I hope you like them. Sandy, my husband’s, response was typical–what is that for?? But, my husband tends to think that way–all about the practical, none about the aesthetic. I think they are beautiful.

Now, heaven forbid, I leave it there. I can’t! After getting through the Northern Lights motif, I wanted to create my own motif to cover a stone. That way, I can provide a pattern/tutorial for you all to follow. This is my journey with most things these days.
This gift to my mother is part of my commitment to give only handmade gifts this year. For more handmade gift ideas, check out the gallery here or by clicking the button below:
