Computer Glitches over and out……

….so now I can wish you all a very Happy Mother’s Day!


I now know never to try to install a new Windows version without proper advice…..nothing like wiping your entire computer clean!!!… drivers, nothing……..couldn’t even access the internet to reinstall the drivers!……thank goodness for knowing a very clever computer man….but it took a while!

I can show you some things I’ve been up to now too….

I’ve finished this pincushion for Clare’s pincushion swap….a Rosalie Quinlan design called “Kiwi-Berry Stitches” using Cosmos and Cottage Garden Threads

….and apart from a bit of gardening…….

and a couple of hospital visits….all routine, nothing major…….and not all mine!!!!!!, life’s been pretty hectic!

DS gave me these beauties for Mother’s Day…..

…even finding the vase and setting them up on the table for me as a ‘surprise’…….(just makes me all gooey inside!!!!!)

….and I set to and made this potholder as part of our present to my Mother-in-law……

Being married to an Italian family means LOTS of cooking….hence the 15kg I’ve gained since marrying my darling man!!!…….so cooking stuff NEVER goes astray, and is NEVER received ungratefully by an Italian in our family!!!!  I hope she just loves the Riley Blake fabric like I do!

Have a fabulous Mothers’ Day……

Sugary hugs xox :O)

Hi.....thanks for visiting and I'm glad you've stopped by to visit and leave me a comment. I'll try to reply each time, but if I don't, it's because I've been hijacked by the family.....know I've read it and it reeeeally warms my heart. *insert jiggly heart here*
