It's Mother's Day here in the USA today. It's my daughter's first Mother's Day as a mom herself. Hubby and I will see her next week. It is so wonderful to watch my daughter as a mom. She is so in love with her own daughter. My DIL is celebrating her first Mother's Day as a mother-to-be. I can't wait to meet my new grandson. Hubby and I will be having a quiet day and then an early dinner with my MIL. I will make a visit to my mom. I'm not sure that she always knows that she is my mom, though she still recognizes me.
I think I will spend a good portion of the day stitching. I have been making progress on my granddaughter's stocking. I am about a third of the way finished now.
That little bird took me over an hour to cut out, embroider, bead, sequin and applique.
For some reason the kitty bib is working up very slowly. I mean really, I haven't even finished the ball of yarn.
I have been steadily knitting the baby sweater. The back is done and the front is almost done.
The pattern requires some concentration. It is an 8 row repeat and I have to carefully follow each row. I love the way this is looking though. Only 3 more rows for the front then on to sleeves.
My back yard is slowly starting to look like Spring has arrived. Here is a view from my daughter's old 2nd floor bedroom.
Our pool should be getting ready for the summer in a couple of weeks.
My hosta and astilbe are starting to grow.
I am joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching. Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are working on.
Thanks for stopping by!
