Sew, knit, spin garden or make stitchmarkers?

Well today is mothers day here in the UK. My 2 boys are away from home, one in Philly and one in Middlesborough . They are great boys but they have never really embraced the joy of Mothers Day! I did get phone calls which is just as good as flowers - yes?

Phoebe my lovely lab remembered and along with my darling hubby got me lovely flowers and a card. Andrew went away to climb some hills so I have had this weekend alone with Phoebe. Now then what shall I do? The sun came out in Dunoon so into the garden I go!

First of all the greenhouse needed some attention. After losing my original to high winds I now have a lovely smart new greenhouse. I planted some seeds and left them to do their thing, hopefully soon they will be lovely plants. A little more time in the garden tidying up then back inside.

I was torn between sewing, knitting and spinning or making some stitch markers. So much to do, just 2 days to do it..... I decided to make some stitch markers for a friends birthday and myself some earrings. I am looking forward to getting better at this one day :-).

Andrew back home now, a lovely Sunday meal and time to chat

So all in all a nice and self indulgent Mothers day for me. No flowers but 2 lovely phone calls and a day doing things that I love. Doesnt get any better really.
