is in the making!
What a lucky lucky Mum I am.
My dearest, clever daughter (aka Sweet B)
stitched this adorable and insanely perfect cross stitch Bullfinch for me
as part of my Mothers day gift
isn't he beautiful? ..... I love his plumpness.
Uh she's a sweet thing x
She stitched this gorgeous Bertie Blue for me last Mother's day
(you may remember seeing it here)
I'm very much hoping that
pretty cross stitch birds for mother's day
just imagine my collection a few years from now if it is!

I'll dream of it.
I stitched last years little bird into a cushion
'My Mother's day cushion'
I'll have to add a 'number one' to that now
'My Mother's day cushion ~ number one'
I'm hoping number two will be finished soon
(and who knows ~ maybe next year there will be a number three ..... perhaps I'm being rather presumptuous!)
Anyway back to Mother's day twenty fifteen
and the plump little Bullfinch
I played around with lots of fabrics
and in the end plumped for these.
Yesterday I had a spare hour so I started stitching.
I'm really pleased with the front panel so far
and can't wait to turn it into a plush new cushion.
I can just imagine myself when I'm very old, surrounded with grandchildren
sitting in my comfy rocking chair with my spectacles on my nose
and my knitting in my hands
telling the little ones that I have dreamed about all my life
all about the pretty birds stitched with love
that their mummy made for her mummy all those years ago!
