Mother's Day

Every year it's difficult to make a plan for Mother's Day because my dad and brother are always farming and don't want to take much time out of their day for anything but planting corn.  So...I decided to take Mom out - just the two of us.  On Saturday, we met at the Mexican restaurant in Mt. Pleasant (I have no idea what the name of it me it is...the Mexican restaurant where the Time Out used to be - kind of like people who give the directions of - turn where the old barn used to be) and had a nice lunch together.  I didn't think to take my camera, but she hates having her picture taken anyway.  I did take a picture of the gift I gave her.  As you know, Mom owns a stained glass studio and when I saw this, I really thought she had to have it.  This is one of the secret gifts that I bought at Adela's in Fairfield a few weeks ago.

The picture doesn't really do it justice, but you kind of get the idea. I thought it was really pretty and would look great hanging in her studio.  We had a really nice lunch.  Mom brought her knitting to show me - it is wonderful  - the recipient (it's a secret - many secrets!) is really going to love it.  She also brought me a really pretty hanging begonia.  It is different from any begonia I have ever seen - she said it was much prettier when she bought it - she had it long enough to almost kill it!  I still thought it was really pretty and will have to take a picture to share with you.  

On Sunday Jessica and Matt came to visit for Mother's Day.  They brought me a pretty lily to plant outside and a beautiful bouquet of flowers for me to admire inside.  Matt went mushroom hunting (it was a bust) and fishing.  It was a beautiful day and Jessica and I spent most of our time sitting outside soaking up some sun.  It was so nice to see them - it was getting awfully quiet around here with DH gone - I needed someone besides the cats to talk to!

If you have looked on my website lately for scissor fobs, you know that there are none!  You can build your own, but there are none already made up.  That is because I sold them all last weekend!  I had a couple of wholesale orders - here are some of the pieces sold...

Needless to say, this week I am making lots of scissor fobs and triangles!  I hope to have some of them posted on the website early next week. 

I better get back to sewing - have a great day!
