Marvelous Monday

What an amazing weekend..and I know this week is going to be just as Marvelous!

What did I do?

Well, first I made a quilted Swashbucking Pirate wall hanging...look at me, quilting like a big girl!

Then I found two quilted squares left over from the BC Charity they became two super padded pin cushions!

 Yum! Three new things to add to the fund raising pile!  Trims are from The Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe.

Creative crochet using a lovely pastle - sage green  Very restful on tired eyes after the excitement of pirates, whales and bright pink pincushions!

 There has been a new start on a cross stitch project but as there is only border, I will leave you in suspense!

Mother's day was wonderful though of course I miss my two eldest children so very much.  

My daughter sent me the most gorgeous flowers.

Lilies, carnations, roses and Iris and Hyacinth
I feel very blessed!

So what is on for this week?  Aha, well I am determined to have a lovely, productive week so will have lots to show you soon!

Enjoy your week too!
