Congratulations Carolyn and a Finish

First, give a way news. Edgar drew a winner for his 4th Blogaversary give away!!!!!  Congratulations to Carolyn.  Her blog can be found at  Its a really cute blog.

As for my week-end, it was really great.  I got to spend time with my family and I did finish my Mother's Day gift for my mother.

I stayed up until 12:37 AM the night before to make sure I wouldn't be late.  My brothers and their family joined us at my house for a Mother's Day breakfast.  I received a Flip Video camera and will hopefully figure out how to upload.  Some short cute takes of course (he he he).  Here are some snaps of the back and the side detail of the pillow.  I used a whip stitch with two different colors to achieve a swirl border and added gold beads to finish up this baby.

The back is a bit plain.  I just signed to bottom right had corner for her.  I am really proud of this one.  Turns out that practice does make perfect.   I plan on expanding my finishes.  I have a 40% off coupon for Hobby Lobby and will be stocking up on some supplies for different types of finishes.  I am hoping to do a flat fold next.

Well, that's all folks.  Here is a pic of my DS on his 20 month bday. 

Its that little smile that gets me through every single day.  Hope everyone has a good Monday.
