Happy Mother's Day!

I just wanted to take some time and wish all of the mothers and grandmothers out there a very Happy Mother's Day! Here's hoping you all had a most relaxing day. This year my birthday fell on Mother's Day so I had a double celebration. Unfortunately I had to work the day but as far as work goes it was a pretty quiet day and I managed to sneak in quite a bit of stitching time. When I returned from work Bob bbq'd our supper and then we shared my birthday cake with our friends who live two doors down. My sons are all busy at the moment but they checked in one by one. I will be seeing two of them later this week. I also tried out that new stitching chair of mine last night and gave it my seal of approval. That is one comfy chair!

I spent all of my time stitching on Weather Wise. It's coming along quite nicely with the exception of some frogging this evening on the lettering. It always amazes me that I still haven't learned how to count.. duh!! I had stitched Red Sky first only to discover when I started the next line of words that I was out by one row. So some minor frogging occured and then a re-stitch of those words. Here's my progress so far.

Prior to working my weekend I had my days off on Thursday and Friday. Thursday I took a trip into my LNS where I picked up the wedding piece I'd taken in for framing. They were a couple of days late in the finishing because the framer wasn't happy with the frame. They re-ordered it three times before he was satisfied with it! You know he's doing a great job when he's that particular about things. I didn't need the piece though until this week coming and it was done in plenty of time. Here's the result.

From the looks of it I didn't do such a great job of focusing on this picture. Sorry!

Time to head off to bed now. I'm back at work tomorrow and we have another busy week ahead of us. I'm only home on Monday evening and my poor CdC has yet to make it out of my stitching bag!! I'm missing it!

Weather Wise is looking great, love the colors. The framer did an awesome job on Two, the frame looks great with your piece. How wonderful that he is so detailed as to want to make it as perfect as possible and to go to that extent to ensure it's done to such high standards.
