Over the weekend my spring issue of Living Crafts magazine arrived in the mail. In it, there is a pattern for a Playful Seal. I wasted no time in stitching up this sweet little guy.
The perfect hand work project to work on while I sat on the floor playing scrabble with Peanut. The pattern for the seal said to enlarge it by two hundred percent, but I prefer to work small, so used the pattern as it was. As you can see, it's pretty little.
Another project from the magazine I'd love to try is this beautiful felted scarf.
Maybe one day.
I had such a lovely Mother's Day yesterday. Peanut made me orange bread (his specialty) for breakfast and then I enjoyed a beautiful afternoon outside with my boys. We got into a dialogue about moms, and their moms and so on. To try and help explain I took out this old locket that belonged to my great grandmother. In it she carried these two photos of my mom.
Funny thing trying to explain to my almost four-year-old that "yes...that is Grandma". Seems he had trouble wrapping his brain around the idea that she was ever such a little girl.
I hope all of you who are involved in mothering had a relaxing and peaceful day yesterday.
