I'm a Lucky Mummy!

Last Sunday was Mothering Sunday here in the UK. 

My son gave me this very apt card (seeing as he's a chef).

He also gave me this lovely book which I've had a flick through but have yet to look at properly (I want to save it for when I have a decent chunk of time).  I have a feeling his girlfriend had a hand in choosing it, but I'm not complaining : -)

My daughter came to spend the day and had dinner with us, bringing this gorgeous bunch of flowers and a card.  I trimmed the stems to fit my vase but was unable to trim the butterfly.  I think it looks good hovering over the blooms.  I might stick it in the garden when the flowers have gone.

It was lovely spending the day relaxing with DD while DS spent the day cooking lunch for lots of other people's mothers, as usual.  DD made me laugh when she tried to explain where a certain farm, that she'd visited as part of her pet business, was located.  She said it wasn't the old-fashioned, muddy farm but the modern one on the other side of the road where the cows milk themselves!!!  Apparently she'd gone there when in college to see their fancy state-of-the-art milking system where the cows just walk in and everything else is automated.

 Later in the day I ignored the housework (as a treat to myself for Mothering Sunday) and got on with some sewing. 

Zipped purses Numbers 2 & 3 were finished. With number 2 having a cockerel on the front and a pig on the back (or vice versa depending on how you look at it!!)

I hope you all had a wonderful day on Sunday whether it was Mothering Sunday where you are or not.

Progress since last time:

Knitted cowl - a few more rows completed after finding my cable needle.
7 Zipped Purses - 2 more finished (4 to go)

Planning to:

Finish cowl
Quilt another block from my Quilt-as-you-go-quilt (remember that?)
Finish the rest of the purses
Make a bag for lady in work who gave me losts of material.

Bye for now

Sounds like a wonderful celebration with your kids and also some good time doing what you enjoy. I think older kids are grand. Such a cute card. I would love for our cards to say "Mum" on them.
