All the attendees received this beautiful set of floral-handled scissors with a lovely little tape measure. I love scissors and this is a wonderful addition to my collection!
We've had some lovely days, as well as a thunderstorm of epic proportions! I think all that electricity in the air caused the iris to burst into bloom. The peonies will be open soon, and the roses are getting ready as well, and some of my clematis is blooming. I can hardly wait till the garden is full of color!
As far as stitching goes, I've done a little. On the Happy Birthday Sampler (VS Retreat project) I finished stitching the cupcakes and candles and added flowers to the vine borders.
I've stitched the number 60 in the little server for my own 60th birthday coming up next month. And it's plain crazy that I'll be 60, so I'll just not think about that, lol!
Hello Spring came out to play for a few days this week too.
It's coming right along - perhaps to be finished in time for summer.
Mother's Day is Sunday, so I'm hoping to get a couple of my boys to help me do some yardwork tomorrow. Then on Sunday some of us will be going out for brunch at Tagaris Winery, where my youngest will be working. The environment at Tagaris is really nice and it might even be nice enough to eat out on the patio which is especially lovely.
So I wish all you wonderful mothers a Happy Mothers' Day and everyone a glorious weekend!
