Mothers Day

Happy Mothers Day to all those hard working mums out there.  I decided early on that I would do no studying today and crack on with my stained quilt

I started early (8ish) and have finally got all my blocks sewn together.  It was absolutely gorgeous here this morning, so I sat at the kitchen table with the conservatory doors open - lovely (p.s it's now raining!!)

I have even managed to get the first two rows sewn together!  I am loving this quilt and hope to get it all finished off next weekend.

This was my mothers day gift from the girls.  The picture is rubbish (ie my photo, not the painting!!)  It is a very large painting that is now on my bedroom room, reminding that summer should be here shortly.  It goes very well with the other beach prints that I have in my bedroom.  I also received some lovely flowers and had pancakes with nutella made for my breakfast :-)
I am now off to cook Mothers Day roast chicken: my mum is coming for tea, just as soon as Jenny has finished work about 6ish


  1. Oooh pancakes with Nutella, yum.
