Mother's Day

A bit late I know, but look at one of the gifts I received from DD1 for Mother's Day -
She had bought it from a market and said "I know you sew, but I couldn't resist this as it just looked like you". Do you think she knows me well? And of course it is a Michelle Ridgway design,  and I've had the pleasure of  sewing many of Michelle's lovely designs.

Not much to show on the sewing front - lots of secret sewing being done, but I have been doing some stitching on this delightful Lynette Anderson design  -

"Mamas Wash Day" - a lovely birthday gift from my friend Karen.  Lynette framed hers, but I have a different idea in mind for mine when it's finished.  Cheryl
