Saturday started out like any other weekend, a morning of shopping and putting all the groceries away (my least favorite job), had lunch and was sitting down cutting out a bag pattern when there was a knock at the door. Kevin (dh) answered it and there, was a man with the most beautiful arrangement of flowers that I've seen in a long time. I thought oh how sweet he's had flowers sent to me..... wrong.... After signing for them and taking them to the table I found the card " Happy Mother's Day, Love Jenna and Max. The tears flowed and I must admit I'm having a hard time fighting them off as I write this. My darling daughter had arranged for international flower delivery. Aren't they beautiful?
It's times like Mother's Day, birthdays and Christmas when I miss my kids the most.
Not long after the delivery of the flowers I received a phone call from Jenna, then one from Luke my wonderful son, placed a phone call through to Hollie at school and spoke to my mum. Even though my kids and my mum are so far away it was one of the best Mother's days I've had, I realised how blessed I am.
Here's the last of the Country Theme that I've stitched. I still have one more to stitch and am trying to decide whether I want a Christmas one or make up one myself. Once I have the last block stitched then it's time to shop for the sashing and border fabrics.
I have 5 of the Crab Apple Hill blocks completed, I'm stitching these up in the evenings while watching TV. Here's the first.
The fabric is actually a lovely lemon, I'm going to have to see why my photo's aren't coming out true to colour.
Today's bag making day.
