Mother’s Day Morning and I was awoken early by children bearing gifts. Who can resist an early morning gift? They’d both taken money to school earlier in the week to buy something at the Mother’s Day stall and then it came to the hard part – keeping gifts hidden and secret for 2 whole days.
A few times, my little miss started to tell me so I’d cover my ears and say “la la la la la la” which she thought was hilarious.
So here is my stash of lovely handmade cards and gifts.
They went to Bunnings (hardware store) last week, with Mr and bought the wooden box. They thought it might be nice for jewellery or for pins in my sewing room. There was a lot of sneaking into the garage to paint and honestly it’s the cutest little thing. Love the little painted rainbow. I’m guessing that was the girlie contribution.
It will definitely sit somewhere proudly in the new house, but for now it’s on my bedside table. Sam made that earring stand at school. It’s fluoro pink with sparkly rhinestones glued all over it. So sweet.
I spent the afternoon doing a little bit of hand quilting. My Spring mini quilt is coming along nicely and I’m hoping to have it finished by the end of the week. Once it’s finished, I’ll share it with you.
We decided not to go out to eat anywhere, instead, we’d stay at home and eat cheese. Literally.
As you may know, I’m a bit obsessed with watching cooking shows. I don’t often make what I see, but sometimes, things just look too good (and easy) so we give them a go. This little meal was inspired by “Simply Baking”.
So for Mothers Day dinner, we had oven roasted garlic and King Island Camembert.
We sat and watched ‘The Block’ while using hot crusty bread to scoop up the gooey cheese and caramelized garlic. Pan fried chorizo on the side complimented the dish. YUM!
How did you spend your Mother’s Day?
