Happy Mothers' Day

As usual at this time of the morning, I'm the only one up, or rather, awake. It's lovely and peaceful, just me and Mollie and the birds. It's Mothering Sunday here in the UK and I've already opened my cards. Dene and Ian gave me a bunch of flowers last night and they're suitably arranged in a vase on the window sill. Kate is going to get me something when she comes home.

It's going to be a busy day today. Dene will be going round to Mam's for me in a couple of hours to take her a card, a bunch of flowers and a book that's all about dreams. Bet there's nothing in there about jet black goats called Sandy with a horn on the end of his nose instead of two on his head. We're not going to go there!

Craig is borrowing a van and is taking Dene up to Berwick this afternoon ready for his one week job training starting tomorrow. The reasoning behind the van is so that Dene can take his motorbike up with him. The A1 isn't a very good road for a motorbike learner cos all the other drivers are lunatics so it's going up in the back of the van and he can putter about Berwick with it. Much safer. He's taking up a good supply of food so he won't go hungry and his Gran and Granda have given him some stuff too. Ian is home this weekend and is going up with them to give a hand, then Craig will drop him off at his Dad's on the way back.

I got this tiny little tuck in the mail yesterday from Sharyl in the US. I took part in a Lucky Tuck Exchange on the TS board. The one I did was crap as I couldn't find anything in my stash that was even remotely St Patrick's Day-ish. I ended up doing a tiny little shamrock. Like I said, it's crap.

When I came home from Spain I brought some of Marilyn's stitching with me. She had already started doing a Warhawk plane for her husband's birthday and she asked me if I would finish it for her. Blogger won't let me add any more photos at the moment so I'll try again later. I started doing the inside of the mouth and got almost all the way round before noticing that some of the stitches were bigger than they should be. There was no way I was going to unpick all that had been done, so I contacted Maz and told her I would start it again, this time on a hand-dyed fabric that looks like sky - which saves me having to stitch the sky. Method in my madness. It's coming along quite nicely, and when Blogger will let me I'll post a couple of pics.
