~ ♥ Happy Mothers Day to all you Mothers out there, especially to mine ♥~
As I took the handmade pledge last year I made most of my Mothers Day Gifts.
First up is the RICO loopy scarf I knitted, this was quite fiddly but I like the effect.
Look at the pile once it was finished, it looks like a pile of fishing nets in need of detangling!
There was enough wool for one thick scarf (cast on 7 stitches) and one thin scarf (cast on 2 stitches).
I bought the wool at the fair last Friday but it's from www.blacksheepwools.com.
Remember the fugly fabric I made Mum's heat pad cover from; well I quilted it and made her a glasses case from the same stuff, it's an 8 inch nightmare, with freaky buttons, I know she will adore it. I just can't bear to post photos of that fabric again!
I made her a little candle too. I didn't use one of my vintage teacups due to the fact that she changes the colour scheme in her lounge like normal people change their socks, so I opted for the only neutral container I had which was this little crystal pot I got from the charity shop for 50p yesterday. The scent is Clean Linen, which smells divine!
I also bought her some flowers too as she loves them, and she's worth it!
I got breakfast in bed this morning made by my little one (assisted by my husband), bless him.
He also stole a daff from our garden fresh with dew, but I had to forgive him :)
Lunch was made for me today and this afternoon we went to the local bootsale and I hit the vintage teacup motherlode, and got some amazing fabric too, I'll show you in the week when I get them photographed.
Oh I almost forgot; here is my little 'Sleepy Ewe' finally finished from the slipwork workshop I took last Friday. Lots of little black french knots on black felt = sore eyes!
You can't really tell from the photo but he is only about 2" long.
He is sweet though.
