Mothering Sunday

Happy Mothers Day to all the ladies in the UK, i hope you've had a lovely day today. I've had a great day, a nice cooked full english breakfast, a roast beef and yorkshire pudding dinner, an afternoon making up a project (see below) and some lovely cards and pressies too. DH gave me some flowers, DS bought me a bottle of wine, a beautiful glass vase and some new stork scissors, and DD bought me a novel by a local author and some nice underwear

This months theme at TS is butterfly, i searched my charts and found this nice one, it's from and old World of Cross Stitching cover kit. It's stitched on 28ct linen banding using DMC thread, and scented with rose. I'm quite pleased with the way it turned out and have decided to give it to my SIL's mum for her birthday next month, she always appreciates a little stitched gift and this will be perfect

Happy Stitching, hope you have a good week, the weathermen are predicting snow here for us !!! i hope they are wrong, but if i have to i can always stay in and stitch through the snowstorm .... that wouldn't be so bad would it LOL

Hi Julie, well done on your ornament it's gorgeous.
Sounds like you had a lovely mothers day.
It's freezing here, plenty of snow on the mountains none on the low ground yet, TG. Hopefully it stays away.
Huggles and Happy Stitching.....

Julie your little ornie is lovely, I'm sure your SIL's mum will love it. We had a bit of snow yesterday (monday) but it soon cleared. Glad you had a good Mother's Day

Lovely ornament Julie. Love the fabric; it really makes the butterfly show up nicely.

It keeps snowing here then brightens up for a bit then we get more! It put paid to having a windscreen fitted, although they'd ordered the wrong one anyway!
