Bits & bobs


Today is Mother's Day in UK
Just for that, we decided to skip rugby training...
and also because it's snowing!!!
Would you believe it? 
We're in March, Easter is coming & Spring is approaching fast.... and it's snowing!
Here the little card my boy made for me at school
I love it!


Here is the latest on Love from the Historical Sampler Company
I'm so close to finishing it... This pink edge is never ending!


Finally this past week I've worked on First Snow from Haed
(my first Haed too!!) to get away from the above pink!!
I have been stuck on various shades of grey instead ☺
This blob is the 1st page (out of ...42) and these are the first 3 top rows...
I have such a long way to go and at the moment it looks like nothing!
I thought it would be nice to remind you of the final picture
Can you see the grey blob on the top left hand side???
This is what I'm working on...



 

Happy Mother's Day to all of you UK mums
Happy Stitching!
Mii x

Ici en Angleterre c'est la Fête des Mamans
Mon petit bonhomme a été très occupé à l'école,
il m'a fait cette jolie carte!
Adorable!!
Petites mises à jour sur Love & First Snow
Beaucoup de petites croix m'attendent!

A tout à l'heure...
