Happy Mother's Day to my mom, my daughters, and my step-daughters. I wouldn't be the mom I am without them. Each of them still changes me everyday in some way and I'm grateful to and for them all.The roses are called Fourth of July roses and Steve and I saw them yesterday on our visit to the Norfolk Botanical Gardens. We went for a plant sale but as the plants Steve wanted were sold out, he was rather disappointed. But the roses were lovely.
As for my gift to my mom, I am so pleased with how the starfish washcloth came out! I'm pretty sure she'll love it as she loves beachy things as much as I do. I'm giving her one of the soaps I got from the MS&WF; it's Lavender Mint and smells just lovely. I'm trying to finish one more cloth, Mason-Dixon's ballband in pink and pastels, but I'm cutting it close, so these may be it. Plus a lovely plant that Steve bought her.
I also am pretty happy with this "new" bedspread. I bought it a month or so ago from the thrift store planning to cut it up and use it to make a rug or two, but after I washed it, it looked so nice that I decided to use it in our bedroom for a summer look. Gotta love thrifting!!
And here's the finished (except for button loops) baby sweater; can't remember if I showed it with the bobble buttons on. Baby shower is Wednesday, so if I'm making the loops, I better get cracking!
I also love these hearts, although I don't think I'll be able to do one in time to gift it to my mom.
My oldest daughter has been making yogurt recently, and I thought this post had some good information about it. I may try my hand at it this summer. I really should try and improve my diet, since I have so many digestive/intestinal issues.
The weather today is absolutely gorgeous, upper sixties. It's so nice, I already weeded and mulched my two little front gate flower beds. After yesterday's hot, windy day, it's extra nice. Steve and I went to the beach in the afternoon and it was like being in a sandstorm, not nice at all.
Whatever you do to celebrate today, I hope you have a good one.
