Mother's Day

I had a lovely Mother's Day.
No sleeping in at my place or breakfast in bed, I woke up at 6am and headed off to The Mother's Day Classic where I volunteered my services again after enjoying last years event. Over 2000 runners and walkers took part in Hobart and helped to raise money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation, over 100,000 people took part Australia wide. Well done to all!!

I came home to freshly baked scones by my 13yo son and was allowed some "me" time so what else can a girl do but stitch. I finished up a shop sample for The Quilted Crow of Marg Low's pattern "Dressy Hangers", I'll definitely be making these for myself and gifts, they're so cute!

P.S. Happy Mother's Day to my Mum, I tried to call you but it kept going straight to message bank!

P.S.S. Happy Mother's Day to my MIL Sandra, DH called you while I was out!

Sounds like you had a good day. My friend walked the classic in Melbourne. Both of her children are overseas so that's how she chose to spend her day. That coat hanger looks great especially for hanging jumpers and the more delicate clothing.

You're a star, Jo! :-) What a wonderful way to spend Mothers Day - raising money and awareness to help other mums! Freshly baked scones and "me" time... it doesn't get much better than that!

Hugs!! vikki xoxo
