    I got lucky. My mom and I have finally developed our relationship to the level where we can be openly honest with each other about anything. So when I asked her about hooked items, like scarves, hats, mitts, and such, she said not really up her alley. (paraphrased here, and no, she didn’t curse). Any way, she, my aunts, cousins on my mommies side, myself and my kids, are all artists. MEYE medium is fiber, so, I have decided that I will crochet her a picture, or something yarn-bombed, or a hooked sculpture.If it comes out supe funky ugly, I will just title it “Gag gift. The white elephant everyone wants in their home decor!”, lol!
