Mother's Day.....

Yesterday was Mother's Day and I hope all you mums out there had a great day relaxing, doing something special or enjoying time with your kids! Unfortunately my daughter lives in Wellington, and my 2 step-kids live in Auckland, so it was greeting from afar this time, HOWEVER, I did receive this interesting present from my daughter...

Wrapped neatly inside this little box was this fantastic hand-made ring. It has a glass flower on it made of purple and green glass with beads on each side. I think it's just lovely! Thank you Traci! xx My Mother's day passed very quietly, but I got to spend half the day pottering round in my sewing room, and the other half gardening. Doing two things I really enjoy, so what more could you want?
I made these two postcards for a swap, the theme was, deep blue sea. I was a bit puzzled as to ideas for this one, and I know the cards look very simple, but they do look deep blue, and we were not to use fish or anything from the sea. I always have great trouble getting the horizon line level with these landscapes/seascapes, which is the most important part of the whole scene. But they are fun to make and very effective.

I also got to finish one of my two cushions I started. You may remember the fabric from a previous post. I'm really pleased with the effort, and love the richness of the fabrics. Now I just have to finish the second one!

Carol I will get your wee gift into the mail, many thanks. Have a great day folks!

Happy mother's day!
I can't imagine how it is to be far away from your children (my son is 2.5 years old). to be far away from your mother is also difficult.
I found your blog thorough blogger because we share some hobbies!
I love the postcards very much! I just started to make ATC's not so long ago.
