Happy Mothers Day ...

Oopsy! Hope all you Mothers out there had a lovely day ... I started this Post and then had lots of interruptions before bedtime. This is what happens when one has four children, of course all adults now and still vying for my time, lol!A little bit of Perle stitching - so relaxing and I seem to hoot ahead. Evening time work for me!

See how I've turned the edges of the backing and stitched it down with a long stitch by machine - just a bit tidier. Beautiful backing fabric, how naughty of me to use it as a backing, but it was on hand and I had nothing else suitable at the time!
See on by Sidebar - Aussie Hero Quilts! Now that things have quietened down a bit, I have decided to become involved and here's some fabric for the first. I have support from a few Girlfriends! who have shown interest but have had no reply to my email so far. Never mind, I'm sure it will come. I like to be able to help out and I'm sure it is some little way we can. I am inspired by the work done by Cherry Red Quilter and Once Upon a Quilt ...


Here's to another busy week - hope it is a good one for you all!
