it's mother's day

 

I think this card says it all, I thought it would give mum a giggle.
Inside it reads ''blame, praise.....your call"
we will be off to mum's for lunch today with food in tow. Meals on wheels it is.
I made mum's favourite dessert.. trifle

I did play with some crafting too this week. 
The next block of Sweet Stitches arrived this week. Not the one I thought would arrive but it is very welcome nonetheless. It is traced and ready to go.
I started to put some of the green stepping stone hexies together.

and just for some encouragement I had a play with the design floor to see how my border would look. After buying some more cotton for the green applique I finished up the first border and have started on the second one which I prepared this week.

Just as I imagined it.... gotta love that.
Hope you all have a great mother's Day!

Marina..

Although here in France the Fete des Meres is yet to come (26th May) we English celebrated the traditional Mothering Sunday way back at the beginning of March!
