I didn't do anything special for Mother's Day but I still had a pleasant day. I had some lovely things off the girls, as Laura helps out at Brownies/Rainbows groups she had made a lovely plate for me. She had to write Mummy though because she used it to show the children what to do!! She also made the teapot card which had a teabag inside!! They then bought a lovely card, a lovely little cake (which I ate a slice of on my new plate) and a cute teddy that says number 1 mom!!
As Laura had to attend church that morning with the Brownie/Rainbow group I made the most of being able to get in her room and painted her door!! So no relaxing there!!
I was able to spend some time stitching in the afternoon though. There have been times over the last week when I began to think I need to retire from stitching.... I have made so many mistakes, not just stitching in the wrong place but even using completely the wrong colour!! But after lots of unpicking all is well and good!!
I finally finished the "months sampler" cards for my order off Ebay. Here are the last 7 of them, the first 2 were for March so they have been sent already. I just have to mount them now....... thank goodness. I can now concentrate on other cards that need doing over the next month, the girl's birthday, my cousin's baby and if I have chance a birthday card for my Aunt Jean.
I haven't taken a photo of Henry yet, I will do that in the morning when the light is better. I did manage to start Anne of Cleves dress, her bodice is in browns and golds.
This week I must start Wedding Row, I had been waiting to get one of the Gentle Arts threads as I want to use a mixture of these and DMC like I did with the other Bent Creek one. The colour I wanted was out of stock for ages at my local shop but I finally managed to get it last week. I also aim to finish Lizzie Kate's Housework, and the Silver Wedding card is nearly done so I will work on that too tonight.Thank you as always for reading my blog, hope you all have a good week.
