Mothers' Day

Since my mum is many things but not in any way girly or frivolous, Mothers' Day (as well as her birthday) tends to present a bit of a challenge where gifts are concerned. However expensive the cosmetic or cream, however beautiful the wrapping or cute the notion - and though she gives good thanks - I just know it will end up in dusty and unused in a drawer. So, shamelessly ripping off those with true creativity and skill, I've made Mum a sampler this Mothers' Day which was embroidered with love and care and as much skill as I could muster.

I hope that she will indulge me as mothers are meant to do - and she always has... Happy Mothers' Day.
