Mothers Day Excitement

Hi, hope your week has been fantastic. It's Mothers Day here on Sunday, and Daughter No. 2 has been crazily excited about it, and preparing like mad. 
She is quite similar to me, likes to plan, loves lists etc. She has asked me to make a list with plans for her birthday party this year. Which is in October. We actually bought a special book for the plans!!
But I digress.... mothers day. 

Daughter No. 2 has already prepared her own Mothers day outfit, I'm not allowed into her room to see it, and on a daily basis she tells me how many sleeps there are till Mothers day, and asks what I will be wearing. (If you're interested, I'm planning on my green and white spotted dress, with a yellow cardigan)
I've been making a few bits and bobs for my Mum, I made this brooch,

I also made her this cowl, she wanted the one from my giveaway, so hopefully this will be a good replacement :-)

Nothing exciting has been happening here lately, I'm trying to make an effort to keep blogging but, it's a bit tricky after having such a big break.
I'm linking in with Tami's for her FO's

Anyway, I hope those of you celebrating Mothers day on Sunday have a fabulous day, I know I'm looking forward to finding out what the shortest one has been hiding in her room, and if I'm getting the Darren Hanlon CD I really want......
Take care


  1. sending some more hugs your way - and hoping you have a wonderful day.

  3. Dear my friend,
    Happy mother's day to you and also your mother. Kisses for your sweet daughter... I am going near my mother and my daughter today. So I am very happy. As your daughter, My daughter asked me If I 'd go near them for several times.. She prepared a mother's day gift for me and she didn't say anything about it. I will see her gift on Sunday.
    All best wishes...

  5. Your mums brooch is lovely, the first picture is very clever.

    I do hope you have a lovely day on Sunday, I love to plan parties too, I am in my element planning food, getting all my cook books out and making sister and her family will be coming for lunch tomorrow so it looks like a bomb has hit my kitchen, but it will be worth it!

  6. Aww what a sweet post. My son isn't old enough to really "get" mother's day yet, but I hope he shares your daughter's excitement a few years from now.^_^
