A wonderful weekend

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there!  I hope you received love, wine, flowers and chocolates.  I certainly did!! Visits from two daughters and two grandchildren, phone call from a third daughter and grandchild, Facebook posts from two son-in-laws.  Oh and not to forget the lavish love from hubby. 

It has been very dry here but we did finally get some rain last night and today.  Despite the wetness there was also lots of sun and we spent a lot of time outside – walking the dogs...

I accomplished a small bit of sewing this week too.  Two blocks for the paper piece swap…

I hope you had a wonderful weekend as well!
