Mothers Day 2013

Sunday 10 March 2013

A lovely day with homemade cards, cakes & a bit of crocheting...

Tonight I am so happy to reflect on happy Mothering Sunday. My second as a new Mum and a special one with my own Mum who has won her fight with cancer twice. An inspiration to me in so many ways. But today is also a celebration to my daughter's two God Mothers on their first God Mothering Sunday to baby L. We are so lucky to have such strong, creative and supporting women in her life - great role models.
So I have been busy making some handmade cards using textured papers, bias, pearls, a glue gun and some old lace and trims I found in the work box.
I know that the ladies love pearls, bows and vintage so theses cards were ideal to celebrate. They took about twenty minutes to make and a glue gun really sped up the crafting. For me and this does sound cliche but to give the gift of time, especially when you are busy is worth it.
Mum and I had another session of crocheting with Simply Crochet  and our yarns whilst baby had a nap. We will get there now the stitches are sorted we just need to start reading a pattern! 

And here we are all our celebrating Mother's Day 2013 before baby L went to bed.
