Happy Mother's Day!

Its Mother's Day here in the UK and my girls treated me to breakfast in bed:) I also got beautiful cards from both of them and DH and Jess gave me The DaVinci Code on DVD and Abi gave me The Feeling CD which I've been wanting for a while:) Just been listening to it and it's brilliant. They have told me that I'm not cooking today so we're having a takeaway later on:) My plan is to have a go at dying some fabric ( some old aida that I don't stitch on anymore) to see how it turns out; one piece using tea and one piece using coffee. Then this this afternoon we're all going to watch The DaVinci Code and I'm going to stitch! Lol!

Yesterday Jess and I took some flowers to the cemetary for my Mum and my MIL. We miss them both so much although the girls never knew my Mum, which is a shame as they'd have adored her as she would them. All she ever wanted was grandchildren. Still some things are just not meant to be but I know she will be watching over them and be so very proud, as will my MIL.

The RAK Fairy has been very busy on the HAED forum on the 29th February and I was one of the lucky ladies who received an RAK from the mystery fairy:) I only had one chart left on my wish list as my tastes have changed and some of the pieces I used to like I no longer do so I was gifted with the very beautiful QS Pale Rose which is by Jasmine Becket-Griffith. She will be the perfect companion to my beautiful QS Holly Fairy which Fudgey gifted me for my birthday:) I just love the eyes; they are so sad yet beautiful.

Have a wonderful Mother's Day!

Hugs

"Takeaway" sounds so much classier than the American "carry out" LOL! Enjoy your day :)

A bitter-sweet day for you too Sally (((((hugs))))). My Mum got to enjoy her two DGS but never got to see her much wanted DGD - Erin was just a bump when Mum passed.
Hope you were well & truly spoiled yesterday! :0)
Very pretty HAED QS: know what you mean about the eyes, they're stunning.
BTW, forgot to say: Chris's RR piece looks great.
