* Happy Mother's Day *

I hope you have all enjoyed this beautiful day! 
I spent some of the day sitting and relaxing in the garden with my best friend and hubby.
We sat out in the sun on the adirondack chairs and had some us time.
 talking and listening to all the happy birds. 
* * * * * * * 
I do have a finish to share.  It's called Basket of Memories and it's a reward of merit chart by Blackbird Designs.  
It's stitched on R&R 30ct Old Mill Java linen with WDW Dolphin floss and stuffed with sawdust.
I trimmed it in some vintage chenille yarn that I had stained up a while ago and it just matched so perfectly.  I also added 3 tiny mop buttons, just like the chart called for.
* * * * * * * 
Happy Stitching and have a great week.
