The ramblings from a small quilt shop on the South Islands West Coast of New Zealand

To all Mothers out there , Happy Mothers Day.  As a proud mum and grandma I think every day is Mothers Day, especially those days that I get to spend with daughters and grand-daughters.  Speaking of which, yesterday I looked after Miss Faith, she's growing so fast now and although doesn't speak much she has a way to get her point across. 

This little girl has a Daddy who owns an enormous truck and a couple of diggers and drives (if that's what you do) junior digger a crane that Faith can identify from afar.  So it was no surprise when one of her first words said loud and clear was digger!

Speaking of Daddy's, our man is due home within six weeks.  In some ways the last five months have flown by, in other ways it has been a long hard slog.

I'm not sure if I can blame the onset of Winter for the restlessness that has come over me with regards to my stitching lately. Has anybody else developed this problem or am I the only slacker around here?  The weather certainly has been conducive to staying indoors, with only a couple of fine days in the last two or three weeks.The ground is saturated and there is a quite a bit of surface flooding around the section.   Having become a great025'starter' I'm struggling to stick with projects and get the darned things finished.  Which is why projects like Gardener's Journal have been so great as I can pick them up in between other starts.  On that note I guess I should toodle off and get stitching.

To all you Mums out there, have a wonderful day.

  1. Happy Mother's day to you. What a fun grand-daughter. Digger that is so cute.

  2. Hi Miche'le, your little granddaughter is such a cutie, bet her daddy is proud of her first word! Hope you get your stitching mojo back soon, or maybe it is just your finishing mojo that has gone......... Good luck and Happy Mothers Day to you


Thankyou so much for popping by and leaving a comment. I enjoy reading your thoughts and ideas and will get back to you if needed, hugs - Miche'le
