Mother's Day Review...

It's been more than a week since my last post...what a slacker, right? Well, I could give you my list of excuses, but I don't think that you'd really care to hear about them...instead you'd rather see what I was working on!

I've been busy with Mother's day things...
I used the Retro Kitchen tutorial along with the material I won from Cherry at Cheery Blossoms Quilting Studio to make Mother day presents. I shrunk the templates and made trivets.

They are about 8 x 12 inches and have a removable rice pack so the covers can be washed if needed.
I think the (more) green-blue one turned out to be my favorite :)

The backs have an over lapping back pouch where I used my sewing machine lettering to add a label to them...

Liz had a Birthday party to go to on Saturday, so we made her friend a pillow...

and a necklace. Liz did the beading...she really liked that!

At the party, we went for a walk... it was a beautiful spring day!

At church on Sunday morning the Mother's were treated well and got some gifts...
and I received these beautiful pansies from my in-laws.
Now, so that I don't kill the flowers, Chad and Liz are taking care of them......I do better with Cactus/Desert plants, they survive without being watered regularly!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's day!

Commit thy works unto the Lord,
and thy thoughts shall be established.
Proverbs 16:3
