I have worked almost exclusively on Mary Margaret since sometime in early April. I think I may finally finish her this week. I have to say that I have enjoyed every stitch, and that is saying a lot considering I have had to frog quite a bit for some reason. I am still off a stitch somewhere between the tree and the vine thing that the owl is sitting on, but I can't figure out where and I have decided to just let it be.
Mother's Day was a busy but wonderful day. We went to my parent's house to celebrate with my family, and later in the afternoon to hubby's parents' house to celebrate with his family. Michael and I are both very fortunate to have both of our parents, and great parents at that. I was thinking Sunday morning how thankful I am for my own sweet, kind mother and how blessed I am to be a mother. Michael took Jake shopping for Mother's Day this year (without me reminding him, which is even better). Jake picked out a lovely purse that I adore (I have a thing for purses...), and he made me a great card. He was so excited about the card. Me too. It was handmade by him with his words. Hallmark will never be able to top that.
We have been working in the yard a little. This fella jumped into my trunk when I visited the local garden center. Isn't he adorable? He's the guardian of the fish pond. :) Please ignore the scraggly little banana tree behind him that my husband insisted on planting. I love bananas, but I am not a fan of them planted in my yard. We live in Kentucky, for goodness sake! This is not a tropical climate...they do not grow well here, but I can't get that through to him.
Michael took Jake golfing this afternoon. I think I will stitch until they get home.
Until next time...
