mothers day

Mothers day in the UK is this Sunday. This evening, a little late in the day I admit, I made a card for my mum. I've included all of my favourite things - using fabric scraps, stitching onto card, printed letters and paper. I hope she will like it - and that it gets there on time. I really enjoy making these little one off pieces. My mum keeps all the cards I've made for her - even the really embarrassing old ones which I don't like.

Thanks for all the comments on what to add to my cushions - it was a unanimous no no, as far as buttons are concerned - too much fear of button - face interface - I can totally see what you ladies mean, but it seems some appliqué would be acceptable so I'll get onto that soon.

I've just seen this ad on the TV, and had to share. It just makes me smile every time I see it. Genuis.

That ad is hysterical - I have no idea how it all fits - but it gave me a good giggle anyway.

Brilliant ad! Also love that card - very stylish, I'm sure she'll love it. You have just reminded me that I don't as yet HAVE a card to give mum on Sunday. Yikes! x
