Quilted at Last!

Finished my youngest daughter's quilt AT LAST. It was pieced 18 months ago already. She chose the center and first border and I picked the rest as it 'grew'. Looks nice and cosy for winter... Teddy thinks so anyway. By the way my daughter is 17 and last year at school, haha.

Mixed Emotions Mother's Day

To all of my lovely blogging friends, I hope you had a special mother's day.

A day of mixed feelings for many, including myself. A day when my mom, living overseas seems especially far away, a day when my granny are deeply missed, passing away only last year at the ripe age of 98.

 A day I thank God for entrusting two gorgeous young ladies to our care to be a mom to them. How I wish I could have a 'game over' and try again to do a better job. Regardless of all my mistakes raising them, I rejoice in the fact that they grew up knowing and loving God and are 2 beautiful God-loving girls. What more can a mum ask for?
