So we have gifts by halves...

Okay, so I didn't get the oh-so-secret (ha!) mother's day presents done in time.

I got them half done - one each.

One sock for my mum...

And one of two pillowcase embroidery for my mother in law to be at some point. :)

Both got given with a ... "Happy Mother's Day! There's another one coming, and you can't take that one with you yet..."

Thankfully, both mums accepted this with good grace. Which is a good thing, or I might have .. I don't know. Not given them hollandaise on their eggs benedict or something. (I made brunch).

Also, in other news... i have finished sampling hexagons.

I have three.
I have decided I like the right most one, the classic granny square vibe but in a modern heaxgon stylin'. (giggle).

Flowers to come at some point. Also considering the odd white hexagon scattered amongst the red to keep it modern looking.

Oh and.. I need to finish the sock/pillowcase mates at some point. Soonish. But perhaps not right this I-rushed-to-get-the-first-ones-done point..

Oh, and Smoulder.
So pretty. So wearable. Yet... gives my shoulder pains from carrying it and all the supplies around. Sigh.
