Mother's Day

To all the Mum's, Happy Mothers Day.
 
Its funny how different countries celebrate Mums at different times of the year!  I know in the UK it was last month.  Here is Australia, it is today - the second Sunday in the month of May.

This morning, I had my Mother and Grandmother here for morning tea, fresh scones out of the oven with jam and cream! My Mum opened her gift and Nan opened hers too.  I like to spoil my Mum, as she doesn't get any gifts (or a card) anymore from other family members.  They are too busy with their own families now.

I like to add a little handmade gift to both my Mum and my MIL's gift package to make it more personal.  I decided to make my Mum a Spell it with Moda 'G' mini:

 
My mother in law, I made some knitted slippers. 
 
 
I actually knitted some for myself too earlier in the week.  They are so toasty and warm!
