mmmmothers’ day…

09 May

I am replete. It’s Mothers’ Day, and I just cooked the most amazing dinner for my Mum.  Rich capsicum rigatoni with fresh parmesan, followed by chocolate mousse tarts with raspberry coulis. It was sooo delicious. (…I have no photos because it all got eaten way too fast. You’ll just have to trust me on this one…)

My Mum was also the recipient of some fairly unique and personalised stitchery. I’ll be posting pics once I frame it later this week – it was presented as her card, but will soon be reborn as a framed and wonderful item. Watch this space.

I also made some nice stitchery for my grandmothers.

Pink roses for my Gran:

And dark red roses for my Grandma:

They were stitched from 19th century patterns, and the finished stitching was less than three inches tall.  They were presented in some very pretty op-shopped frames.

Frankly, I think both grandmothers pretty much just pleased that I didn’t stitch any four-letter-words in there.

I’ve also got a bit of a nifty WIP going, for the Phat Quarter Zen Swap. But it’s a secret until the swap recipient gets it, which means no WIP shots, and it’s eating all my time, which means not much other crafty stuff to post … I hope the delayed gratification is worth it.
