Present for mum

Every year I always struggle with what to make my mum for christmas. This year I found a lovely Sally Giblin pattern that I knew mum would like. Its a lovely cushion with stitchery and applique, the writing says "Mothers are like buttons, they hold things together"


I chose mum's favourite colours which are yellow and blue. The cushion matches lovely with my blue hydrangea.


All my christmas presents are finished and in the mail, some have even arrived to their new home which is always good. Today I'm having a "me" sewing day. I want to finish some decorations I started to make. I hope you find some sewing time today .

Lucky mum that is beautiful. So is the hydranga, one of my favourite plants that do not grow well in the Perth heat. Dreams of one day having lots of Hydrangas.... Merry Christmas. Tracee xx
