Happy Mother Day,
Here in the UK today is Mothers Day, hopefully the weather will be as lovely as yesterday, the sun was lovely although not very warm, I took some photos of the flowers out in my garden but that's for a post another day.
I made this card for my mother, using some free papers from the Papercraft inspirations magazine added some roses and ribbon in a spray at the corner.
The main image is a tatted angel called Marjorie's Angel my Mothers name is Marjorie so I thought it was most fitting, which I used Pineapple Parfait Lizbeth thread no 20, the pattern is one of Martha Ess, from Martha Tatting Blog blog link to her blog. I rather like this pattern and have made two more as below.
I finished the card off with silver peel off's, butterfly gems and a yellow bow in the same ribbon as in the spray.
This is another Marjorie's angel which I made in Christmas Green Mix no 20 Lizbeth thread
This Angel is made with Girly Girl thread again Lizbeth thread no 20 only when cutting off the thread after sewing it in I cut one of the picots by mistake. Do I make another one or do I use it on a pin cushion? I have not yet blocked this angel so she looks a bit ruffled
All the angels halo's were done with Madeira silver thread.
I am going in to see my Mother this afternoon, she wont remember who I am and wont remember after I have left its Mothers Day, I have brought her some flowers and a new top, what do you give a mother who is in a nursing home. I just hope the top fits.
Hope you have a great day, until we meet again Take Care.
