Beautiful Flowers & Another Finish

Hope that all of you Mothers had a very special Mother's Day.  Our children made my Mother's Day weekend extra special by coming here and there over Saturday and Sunday.  It was fun, but a little exhausting, as my dear husband assisted everyone in making meals on both days!  I felt like a little pampered queen!  I received lovely flowers and cards, some of which made me cry, with their sweet, heartfelt sentiments.  I am blessed beyond measure!
Love the Ladybug!
I adore red carnations!

Daughter, Carra, with "Miss" Ella and her favorite bear, 
"A-Ma", whose name we think means "Grandma" because Ella loves Grandma's teddy bear collection!

New  Start for a Friend's Birthday at the end of the Month, just started yesterday, but it's stitching up nicely.....I love the soft colours of this design!

Whoops.....I've got to watch the time.  Carra and Ella are picking me up for lunch and to spend the afternoon together at their house for a change.  Fun! Fun! Fun!

Enjoy your day, and hope that you have just a little time for some stitching sometime today too!
