Mothers day

hope you all had a lovely mothers day, mine was just another day, too much going on, i had to go to work for a few hours but then alex and i went off fabric shopping so that made up for it, but everyone was out anyway busy busy, so when i go back i cooked dinner and played with fabric,
i received cards with the messages that always make me cry, i also received some yummy thorntons choccies in my fave flavours, strawberry,orange and lemon,they did'nt last long i can tell you lol i also received two huge bunches of daffodils, i love daffs! i can't take a pic as my camera batteries have just died and i can't find any more right now!

i eventualy chose something to make for my mum, after lots of umming and arring, what shall i do? so i made this bit try for her when she's stitching, it is padded on the bottom so it can be used as a pin cushion too! its one of colly's designs that i stitched recently.

Quilt exchange finish

I took part in a quilters exchange on the crafty natter forum i am a member of , how it worked was we all started off with the same fabrics, a FQ of each, each member of the exchange chose a fabric without knowing what each other had bought passed them around so we all started with the same fabrics, we then were allowed to add 3 more different colours to it, this was to include borders and backing, we then went off again without knowing what we were all making and ended up with a quilt, wallhanging, whatever.....this is my offering it is to sit on my sofa, i am chuffed to bits with it, even with the BIG booboo i made that i did'nt notice until i took the phot lol, never mind it adds to the character lol......

ok off to spend the day with Colly, Polly and the girls have a great sunday all x
