Mother's Day

I hope everyone enjoyed a lovely weekend and mother's day!  Mine was especially nice as it was my first as Mother-Of-Two, and my own Mumma was here to celebrate with me.  I got her the lovely bouquet above as she loves peonies.  Luckily, I get to enjoy it too since she is staying here!
Using this fabulous tutorial, I also made her a fabric flower brooch.  Poor Mum had to mind the kiddies while I put it together for her though, since I only got the sewing machine back from service on Friday.
I am lucky to have the bestest Mum in the whole wide world.  Happy Mother's Day Mumma!

  1. Beautiful flowers and beautiful photo of you, the kids, and your mom. I don't know if I have any photos of just me and my mom with the boys. I will be sure to take some this summer.

  2. I love the flower! You did an amazing job, better than me :) I love how you did the back too!

  3. Those peonies are gorgeous. Great photo!

  4. Thanks you guys! Deanna I have a feeling I will be making a lot of those - so easy! Thanks for the tutorial! Oooh - 3 in a bunch would be awesome on a belt...must file that idea away. Kendra I love this photos too, it was so lucky that Mum was here when we had Tara do the photos. I had to DRAG her in to the photo, but now I will always have it. And Marjorie, thank you, but the peonies really did all the work for that photo! :)


Thank you so much for your comment - they always make my day!
