Mother's Day Weekend

Looking ahead to Mother's Day, my gift is ready for my mom. I hand stitched a little collection of note cards last night...


I love the scalloped edge on both cards and envelopes...

I also love ice cream!...
(I may not stash yarn but the same cannot be said about DKC embroidery floss ;)!
For my own Mother's Day "gift" to me, I'm prepared for my two Sunday workshops at the Frolic - one on "fit" and the second on adjusting patterns so they will. This second class is with Veronique Avery. I probably would have taken any class she was offering but I'm so pleased the one she's teaching will compliment my Sunday morning class and that persistent knitting challenge for me - making things I want to wear.

My list is ready for the marketplace tomorrow (I'm happy to vicariously "shop" for you too Sandra!) After seeing this yesterday on Glenna's blog, I've added that to the items I plan to seriously check out at the Tanis Fiber Arts booth!

I took one item off the list yesterday after I found a credit note in my wallet and took a trip to Passionknit. Another Mother's Day Weekend "gift" for me! I applied the credit to getting this cotton/linen blend...
With which I plan to make the Lace Saddle Tee from the current IK.
As for the Sel and Poivre knitting basket, the leg of my "wheaten" coloured sock (Lyn used the term in the comments the other day in reference to the Minimalist Cardi but I think it suits this colourway even more!) is done and I'm onto the chart for the heel.
The Simple Swing Cardi is fabulous on the go/drowsey knitting and is the perfect foil after following the sock charts. I've probably got 4-6" more on the body before I turn my attention to the sleeves.

Well that's me as of this morning. I'm looking forward to a knit filled weekend and all the more so since I saw the weather forcast - unlike the last couple of Frolics its supposed to be cool enough for people to wear their knits which should mean there'll be even more to see!

Thanks for dropping by!

Those cards are a cute idea! Happy Mother's Day! Have a wonderful weekend!

Those cards are phenomenal! (And I think you have Frolic on the brain - the thread is DMC, not DKC!!)
Have fun shopping - you don't know how much I want to be there...

I'm so jealous - my Mother's Day gift for my mom is not even close to being done. Such is life.

Thanks for the link to the Royale pullover! It's gorgeous and I just added it to my ravelry queue.
