Mothers Day 2011

Happy Mothers Day to all who nurture out there.
Friday was spent with my Mum, lunch, shopping and generally catching up.It is sad that she doesn't live close enough to visit every day, so it is lovely to share days when we can. We talk daily, but it would be nice to see each other more often without the long trip. I will be down her way for a conference in ten days so I have opted to stay with her and have a sleepover. She is excited!
A little stitching time today...
 My Anni Downs project I am playing with- those teeny tiny shoes were fun to needleturn...
and I do a little cross stitch each night on my 50th sampler the gravestones are hard to see under the tree...
and this little beauty by Blackbird Designs has just been framed...it looks "old". Perfect!
Just my DD around today...a lovely dinner cooked and some uni work done.
Plus there has been a little progress on my TTS blocks!
Hope you had a happy day...

Oh wow...your framed cross stitch looks amazing...I used to do cross stitch years ago and seemed to gravitate to patchwork, quilting and stitcheries.....I think you have inspired me recently to have another go at cross stitch....I'll be looking for a project in Sydney....I particularly like your designer...where do I look to see some others by the same designer?
