Happy Mother's Day

Hello Stitchy Friends!

I hope all of you that celebrate it will have a pleasant Mother's Day tomorrow.  I am looking forward to it.  Ever since I became a Mom, 26 years ago, it has been one of my favorite holidays.  From the early years when they would come home from school clutching a secret present made at school to this year when for the first time We welcome into our family a son-in-law and a daughter-in-law to be!  I feel truly blessed.  There is such a wonderful feeling seeing your children happy in life.

We went to the nursery today to pick out some plants, and it was obviously THE place to be!  Lots of people were there taking advantage of a beautiful Saturday.  

I chose this beautiful hanging basket for the deck.  

Then we found this cute little set of clay pots that mount on a metal bar.  So when we got home, mike hung it up for me while I planted the pots.  

I have to share a picture of this adorable fairy garden that was a birthday gift to our future daughter in law.  Her sister created it.  I thought it was so cute!  There is even a tiny tea set on a little wooden table!  We were at her birthday party last weekend, and had a great time.   

I have been diligently stitching on Mr. & Mrs. This week.  I don't particularly like stitching something twice, but a friend of mine saw the one I made for Holly and Joe, and asked me to stitch it for her daughters wedding.  I agreed, and have it close to being done.  I want to finish it by Monday, so she will have time to get it framed before their wedding.  

I did finish stitching the Spring sampler by LHN.  I think I mentioned that in my last post but neglected to share a picture.

Please excuse the wrinkles.  I have the summer sampler about half done now.  So I will press them both when I finish.  The best thing about these is that I can usually find a ready made frame for them.  That doesn't happen often!  

I took several pieces to my LNS for their framing sale, so I will have some finishes to share one of these days!

  Harry says hi!  Happy stitching!
