This weekend is Mother's Day weekend here (I know it isn't celebrated the same time world-wide). We are hoping to see #1 son, daughter-in-love and our grandson on Monday but of course our #2 son and his family live way out in British Columbia and seeing them in person won't happen. The post office just delivered a joint Mother/Father's day gift to our door from our west coast family and when we opened it we discovered a wonderful photo album filled with amazing pictures of our grandson. I cried and DH was perilously close to it too. What an amazing gift! I love flowers as much as anybody but once they're dead you have nothing but the memory, whereas this wonderful photo album is something we can treasure for a lifetime. Thank you Shawn, Winnie and Theo!!! I love you!

Now, for a couple more seam treatments for you to play with...
This one is done with cross stitches (black) and the rest of the treatment uses simple straight stitches.
I do hope you find these seam treatments of use for your own creations. If you do use them, I'd love to see photos!!
- Many of you have probably heard of the current rage - fidget spinners - and HERE is a make-your-own version that would be such fun to make if you happen to like Lego or know someone who does.
- HERE's a cute blanket for a little one. Or you could make pillows from the different animal patterns.
- I love the look of stained glass, whether it be real glass or in quilts so I searched out some links to share with you in case you like them too! Go HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE.
Today your quote is from an anonymous source..."Being a mother is not about what you gave up to have a child, but what you've gained from having one"
Happy Mother's Day!
