Happy Mother's Day

There's lot's of love going around our house this Mother's Day. I'm very blessed.

My beautiful girls made me cards, gave me toys, and promised we wouldn't have any (well....much) drama today!

I got EXACTLY what I wanted from The Big Guy:

Okay, Okay!! I bought it!! But he's always happy when I'm happy!

I pretty much told them to take it easy this Mother's Day. We're having tighter times around here so we have to concentrate on being more selective about what we spend our money on. It's really for the best (as I look around at my cluttered house....)

On the Left: Blue Heron Bulky Rayon Chenille in Berry that I ordered from Coveted Yarns. I've never seen this colorway before (I've been buying this yarn for years) so I was just drooling over it. Well, when I went back to order it - it was GONE!!! I was sooooo bummed! I decided to email the nice people at CY and they answered right away that they had ONE skein left and would list it again so I could order it. Super nice people. I love my BH Chenille more than I can say.

On the Right: I was directed to PicnicKnits from Lime & Violets Daily Chum recently. She was offering FREE shipping on this merino silk sock yarn. Can't beat that. And the yarn DID NOT disappoint with all my monitor issues! You can't (usually) go wrong with PINK, I have before I know, but this time I totally lucked out! I'm thinking ANOTHER pretty pink scarf for moi.

PS. There's CHOCOLATE CAKE being made today too......

Awesome gifts! Glad you had a great day. My husband waited on me all day and even did the laundry. That's what I wanted for Mother's Day...I'm easy to please. The Girl gave me a wooden jewelry box, which she painted hot pink and orange and put her picture on it. It's adorable!
