This lovely pic was taken at their daughter Beckie's wedding two years ago. A difficult Mother's Day for them all, this year.
I managed to make Mum's pressie for Mother's Day without her noticing. A couple of years ago I made Frank for her. Here he is, with his brother Sam (I can't believe I'm sad enough to write all this!!)
Anyway, meet Grace -
Yes, I know she doesn't have a face yet, but my embroidery threads are lost in the piles of craft stuff waiting to be unpacked onto new shelves in the craft/spare room once Mum moves downstairs to her new room.
Frank seems quite smitten
and doesn't seem to mind that he can't stare into her eyes yet!
Having got that project out of the way, I've started on a cushion for DD1. She saw a picture on the net, and asked if I could make one like it (sorry, I don't know who to credit for it - I only saw a pic of the finished item).
Watch this space.
I don't care if you need a new ball of wool - I'm not budging!
And me? I'm going to crack open the Mother's Day Baileys, put my feet up and carry on with a little hookie.
Have a good week, see you over at Julia's xx
