Mothers Day

Happy Mothers Day to all mothers out there, I went out to lunch with my Mother and Sister and her Family for lunch at an Italian Restaurant, then back to my Sisters house for dessert, we played some games with my Nephew and play several rounds of Telly Addicts, my team won 2 out of 3 games.

Wendy asked on my last post if this pattern was a Mackintosh Rose, she was correct I got the pattern as a kit from Spangles at a bead show, they also do mail order.

I have had the beads out again, this was done in size 15's, it is taken from a pattern from Laura McCabe called Jack-in-the-pulpit, she says it is a woodland flower for spring I do not actually know what colour these flowers are I just chose blue, the pattern was in Beadwork april/may 2010. I used it as a single pendant on some PVC tubing for a necklace.

I have been doing Frosty Forest from County Cottages Needleworks it is a 9 part series, I found a shop in the UK which was doing an autoship for each part including threads and fabric, instead of having to get it from the states, I am on part 2 of the 3 I have received, I am a member of a SAL to try and keep me motivated to stitch this.

I decided to treat myself this week, I still had some Birthday money left, I found a shop in the UK which had stocked these limited complete kits from Lizzie Kate,  I do love her stuff, this is another thing I shall be taking away with me.

Happy Mother's Day to you! We do not celebrate in the U.S. until May. That is one of the things about blogging, finding out how and when other countries celebrate things like holidays.

Your beaded creations are wonderful, as always!

I was surprised to see you celebrate now. In the USA we wait until may. How nice you got to spend the day with family members. Your beading work is so pretty. Lizzie Kate is a great treat.

Thanks for the link Jayne, it was me that asked. It's added to my wishlist! Lovely stitching. I can't see the beading, it's not your blog, it's my reader, for some reason some photos are all blacked over and I can't see them!
