Mothers Day Gift

Apologies if this is a bit of a proud Mum post!!

My 19 year old daughter Helen is in Uni at the moment but she came home for Mothers Day weekend. She gave me the most beautiful present, I’m so pleased with it. Her stitching is so neat and according to her boyfriend she spent forever choosing the buttons in John Lewis’s.

I think handmade presents are so special as you’ve given so much of your time and thoughts in creating a gift.

Linking up with Kathy’s Quilts for Slow Stitching Sunday.

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!
