Happy Mother's Day

I hope you all had a lovely Mother's Day with time for things you love to do. I spent the weekend helping our youngest DD to make a special quilt for her best friend's wedding in June. She did a great job and has stitched their names and the wedding date as well as two gold rings in a special block in the middle of the quilt. We still have to add borders and then I'll quilt it for her. It's only her 4th quilt and she did a great job, but more importantly she enjoyed the process.
I also managed to finish off 4 more scarves and a beanie with a fancy cable, and they will all be going to Qld for the homeless.
I also received 21 beautiful QAYG blocks from Anne Brennan, S Edwards and the Morwell (Vic) quilters as well as 10 fabulous beanies made by Ann Birch (Vic).
These lovely donations will all be so welcomed by the people who are now homeless due to the floods in Qld and I'll be sending them on their way very soon.
The last photo shows our youngest DD's new kitten, Buffy. She certainly livens up the household and I've had to rescue quite a few balls of wool from her while I'm knitting. It was quite strange not to have a kitten pounce on the ball of wool today.
It was a lovely weekend and although I wasn't able to finish off any quilts while I was helping my DD make her quilt, I did manage to finish off a few more knitted items.
I hope you all had a lovely weekend too.
Hugs Jan Mac
