My quilting thoughts and inspirations sprinkled with a glimpse of life down on the farm

hey Mum...

It's been lovely to read all the Mothers' Day wishes and stories on every-one's blogs this weekend.
Here is one of my favourite photos of my Mum with my sister and I.

 Isn't it fun to get together your own family and to have a good laugh - each family seems to have it's own individual sense of humour that is unstoppable! I guess it's all based on shared memories and experiences which means everyone is on the same wavelength.
Here is a cross-stitch that Mum did for her Mum in 1989 which is now back on Mum's wall.
(Raewyn's having light issues again!)

Mothers' Day for me has stretched over 3 days! My ED made me a delicious lunch on Saturday when I was travelling back up home. She is at the half-way point of the journey so the break and meal was most welcome. Yummy Pumpkin Soup and homemade bread went down a treat, and a nearly-well-timed dash to the local coffee shop meant I had a nice coffee too!
 Had a lovely chat with our son on Sunday. He's just moved to a new job in Queeensland so it was great to hear all his news.

This morning YD arrived out at the farm (to work) with a lovely gift.
She's made another bear! And look at those cup-cakes!
I get to keep this bear!

Thank you my 3 lovely children.
I hope all you other Mums out there also were made to feel special. Have a lovely week,

Sounds like a lovely weekend!

Cool little bear with the shower cap on! Mmmmm yummy cupcakes, too pretty to eat?
What a lovely sampler your Mum made. I guess that's a strange thing, your Mum made it for her Mum, but now she has passed on, your Mum has it back. Good that it stays in the family.
I got Russian fudge made for me & some gardening was done by the ES.

See, I told you that you had a talented family. I think you are all special.

Looks and sounds like you had a wonderfully long Mother's day. The sampler is beautiful. The little bear is so precious. Your daughter does beautiful work.
