Mothering Sunday

Today we are celebrating Mothering Sunday here in the UK.  I've had a lovely day. 

Beautiful cards

Gifts from my daughter - some new mini wellingtons for gardening, a lovely bookmark and the most beautiful bunch of flowers

Goodies from my son - some of you might recognise the Baa-ble hat pattern,

He ordered the pattern, downloaded it, laminated it and had it bound too.  It came complete with the correct wool to knit it with, an exciting challenge to look forward to knitting whilst having a cup of tea from the pretty tea pot.

DH took me for a ride in the car, and then a little walk at a local beauty spot.

Lots of lovely spring snowdrops in the woodland

Sending love and best wishes to all mums, with special thoughts for those of us with angel children and ladies with angel mums. xx
A little progress to show on Blue Ribbon, A Friend Indeed -
and my bookmark - shame the frog arrived and made a nuisance of himself!
A knitting finish of a simple 2 row pattern spring scarf to go with my new coat.
Here are 6 little egg cosies for a friend who works in a charity shop.  She wanted some for the shop window Easter display and I was happy to help.
Love and blessings to you all
Julie x



  1. Happy Mother's day Julie. Love those little ankle wellies, and your son does very well with knowing just what crafty goodies to buy :-)

  2. Same to you Julie, I love what you said about angel mums and angel children. I must admit that I found today quite difficult. Lovely little knits - you are very kind helping your friend this way.

  3. Hugs to you on Mothering Day!

  4. Happy Mother's Day to you, Julie! What lovely gifts--the little garden boots are so pretty and will come in very handy. And I love the kit your son put together for your next knitting project--so very thoughtful :)

    Oh, my those tiny bunny egg cosies are the cutest! I'm sure everyone who passes by the shop window stops to smile :)

    Wishing you a lovely week ahead! ♥♥♥

  5. I love your knitting gift

    Julie xxxxxxx

  6. Glad you had a good day, I love the bunnies. Well done on raising such a thoughtful son.

  7. What wonderful gifts, fancy your son managing to make you up a little knitting package, that's a super present. I've got the Baable hat in my queue, I've been wanting to knit it for a while but haven't got round to it yet. The little egg cosies are so cute and very eastery.

  8. Lovely gifts Julie, I'm looking forward to seeing your progress on the Baa-ble hat.
    I remember days out at Rutland Water when we lived up that way, beautiful place

  9. Well Julie you had a lovey Mother's Day indeed!! Your family certainly takes excellent care of you! Most impressive. :D I LOVE those little egg cosies.

  10. It's looks as if you had a great Mother's Day, Julie. Your bookmark stitching has been appropriate these past few days with Crufts taking place.


  11. Lovely post Julie ,so happy you had a lovely day and lots of treats.
    Love those rabbits , you are a true giver dear friend.
    Enjoy your week.

  12. You have been busy again Julie! I love those egg copies, they are adorable. Glad to hear you had a lovely Mothers Day, you received some lovely cards and gifts.

  13. Beautiful cards and lovely gifts from your children. Love your photos of your outing with DH. Your egg cosies are adorable.

  14. Happy Mother's Day to you Julie. What lovely cards and gifts you have received. Your day looked perfect. I love your little egg cute are they? RJ@stitchingfriendsforever

  15. Lovely gifts Julie. Rutland Water is such a peaceful place. Your spring scarf and egg cosies are super.

  16. You received beautiful gifts for Mother's day, well desrved ones.
    I love the scarf and egg cosies may be because I have been bit by knitting bug lately.

  17. Julia, YOur egg cozies are just adorable!!! You are a good friend!! Love the hat pattern and such a lovely walk you went on for Mother's Day!

  18. I hope you enjoyed your day Julie. Your gifts are lovely . X

  19. Goodness Julie, you spent the most perfect Mother´s day, what lovely gifts and a very thoughful one from your son. Love the ankle wellies, cards, chocs and just everything. Wonderful work for the shop window Easter display. Mother´s day here in Spain falls on the first Sunday of May, so I´ve plenty of time to start nudging all concerned.

  20. What a lovely way to spend the day. I spent mine stitching which was great!

  21. You've achieved more than I have this month so far. I love your flowers and while your son was extremely thoughtful with the pattern, you can keep the sheep rofl. You will have to read my blog post to see why but the timing was perfect!

    I love the Easter knits. My little bunny never leaves me now. She is my good luck bunny. Thank you so much for making her for me.

    Sending you lots of smiles xxxx

  22. Happy Mother's Day, Julie, sounds like you were deservedly spoilt. Lovely stitching and knitting, too.

  23. Happy Mother's Day, Julie! It looks like you had a lovely day -- and some very nice presents, too. Those egg cosies are the sweetest! : ) Hugs!

  24. Sounds like a perfect Mother' Day, Julie. Such lovely gifts from your children and a nice trip spent with your husband. Those snowdrops in the woods are a wonderful sign of spring.
    Lovely stitching; Julie, and such sweet little egg cosies.

  25. Wow, what a fancy presentation of the Baa-ble hat! I've had that pattern saved for ages (although I must admit to liking the kitty version [Meowf] more) but haven't yet attempted it. You had a lovely Mothering day indeed!

    Those little egg cozies are adorable. Americans are really missing out on cute breakfast friends haha.

  26. Happy Early Mother's Day. I say early because I have to wait till May 13th for ours haha. Great gifts you have received. Beautiful progress on your projects. Thanks for sharing photos from your walk.

  27. Hi Julie!
    Love the boots! What a lovely day you had, and such gorgeous gifts!
    We just had snow again here for a couple of days, and all the daffodils and crocuses were buried ..... thawing again now and can see flowers again, phew!
    You’re cross stitching is looking lovely!
