Reversible table topper for dear Mrs. Almo. Ok, her name is Alma.....she will turn 90 next week. E has a slight speech problem and could never say Alma, he would say Almo. She don't mind Almo so the name has stuck. She's a dear friend of the family and E loves her like crazy. For him, she's just another grandma. I've made her a few things in the past, but nothing lately. So, I asked mom what her kitchen colors are and it's mauve, yellow and green. Mom picked out these fabrics saying they matched the best. I added some "cheater" fabric to the back and a few fancy decorative stitches and waaa-laaa it's reversible.
Front, with her kitchen colors.
Next week, once my school is done and E will be out for Thanksgiving, we'll ride out to see Mrs. Almo She lives even further out in the boonies than we do. I'm 20 mins from the nearest town or grocery store, she is 45 mins. She still lives very simple, she has no air in the summer and in the winter her house is about 90 degrees. I roast when I'm there whatever time of year it is. Bless her......she's so sweet!
