Simply Gorgeous Mothers Day

I hope all the Mum Bloggers out there had
a Wonderful Mothers Day on Sunday......
Shoes seemed to be the theme of the day......
I was spoilt with not 1 but 2 pairs of lovely new slippers....
Here I am getting ready to go to The mountain Tea House
for lunch with Jacky Mister and Miss Molly.....
I am sure that I have shrunk a little since last Mothers Day...
Below is the picture that they drew in my Mothers Day card...
Just too cute and pretty accurate, I am the shorty in the middle....
Ha ha....Love it!
And here is my completed "Simply Gorgeous Shoes" block...
And my new boots that I "Simply had to have"...Lol....
I am working on my "Chair & Sewing Block" at the moment....
Until next time, Happy Stitching
Kate

Hey Kate,
I remember well when I first became shorter than my children or was it that they became taller...I'm 5'6 so they had a bit to go..my son is 6'4 and my Daughter 5'8...makes one feel tiny, doesn't it. I am not a shoes person so I did a Bear block. I like your block, though.
Blessings,
Mama Bear
