My Mother My Friend


I have finished this lovely stitchery by Sally Giblin of The Rivendale Collection called "My Mother My Friend"


It was a bit tricky for me working out the fabrics as this is to go on mum's bed and her bedspread is blue and purple.


Once the stitchery is done it doesnt take too long to put the cushion together.


I was pleased with how it looked in the finish,and so was mum.


This was for mum's birthday next month but i wanted to give it to her now,mum turns 80 on the 2nd of March.
I have a few Riverndale patterns so i will make up some more,i quite like these patterns.

 Life only comes around once.
So do what makes you happy and be around people who make you smile.

cheers shez xx
