and it frames the beautiful picture that YD brought for me when on school camp earlier this year.

woman made will have to do today!

my Mum embroidered this beautiful tablecloth for me many years ago...
I received it in the post, had no idea what was in it...
she had seen the design and knew that I loved blue wrens, so did it for me as a surprise...

I don't use it very often as it is a treasured piece, as Mum is no longer with us...
I admire her beautiful stitching, so neat...the back is almost as good as the front!
I think this is probably where I get my passion for stitching from...
thank you Mum!

PAD update

it's finished

sewing the sequins on the flowers and straps of Diva's deb dress...
2 weeks to go
hair and makeup trials still to be done...
believe me they are going to be simple!

something you do most weekends

don't always have lunch on the weekends, 
not hungry, big breakfast, late breakfast, can't be bothered?

photo a day catch up!

ok I know! I'm late again...
so we have 3...

down.... looking down at the mess on the floor in the sewing room!

card....with my favourite little birdies on it!
hidden....the ufo pile hidden in the basket!

this month has past quickly again...
and Spring has begun...
I don't think I will do the September photo a day....
but will try to keep to regular postings...
I have thoroughly enjoyed the photo a day hosted by Fatmumslim....
it's been a challenge at times to think of something to fit the theme of the day...
