Happy Mother's Day on a Slow Stitching Sunday...

Happy Mother's Day to all of the wonderful women who work hard every day of the year... a day in your honor is well deserved!  And to celebrate this occasion I plan to indulge in a little stitching and knitting before I attend dinner at my older son's house... he's grilling steaks and I made pasta salad, marinated tomatoes and deviled eggs for accompaniment... I did that yesterday so I can take it easy today... and isn't the the essence of motherhood... we strive to make the world of our children a better place even on our day off!

And on the stitching front much has been accomplished... I finished Prairie Schooler's July...


I can't believe I have one of these done ahead of time...yeah!  I plan to finish it and display it like Priscilla did... you can see it here on her blog.  And I am continuing my personal Mother's Day tradition of starting a new piece of cross stitch... guilt free... no thoughts of all the other WIPs I have.

This year I chose Summer Alphabet by Lizzie Kate... I've already stitched Winter, Spring and Fall in this series ... I don't know why it took me this long to get around to Summer.



And here is my start... one block... I'm using DMC and the linen is a 32 ct. Wichelt called Sun Shower... a lovely yellow. I do enjoy Lizzie Kate pieces... easy to stitch and I particularly like the samplers in this series. Each letter is a different font and a different border ... certainly keeps my interest.

Also I got some happy mail this week... a sweet piece of cross stitch from Terry of Terry's Treasures...


Terry said her Mom did the cross stitch and Terry did the finishing... I will treasure this gift!  Thanks Terry and your Mom too!

So I have several hours to sit and stitch... if it warms up I'll go out and sit on the porch... hope you are having a lovely day!

I'll link up with Kathy's Quilts today and Super mom - No Cape on Monday.

happy stitching-
