Mother's day and more........

Now, Where to start?
Lots of days gone by since I last posted,
and I've been running around in a whirlwind.
Last week my husband had a slight headache,
when I checked his BP it was
He had to be admitted to the hospital to control the blood pressure.
the Doctor said it's because of the hectic kind of daily schedule
and of course due to his incessant smoking and faulty diet.
I guess we are living some kind of fast-forward life,
you know,
no time" to stop and smell the flowers" kind,
He's on medication now and is better.
On to some Happy notes now.......
Friday was Vaasu's B'day
And we all enjoyed a lot.
He ate the cherries off the cake even before blowing the candles off!
And he loved the chocolate cake for his evening party too.
Here's me and Vaasu rubbing noses,
he does it in a very sweet way-moving his head to and fro as if
he's going to "rub-off" my nose!
there was a little function at his play school
for the Mother's day and he gifted me this.....
The First ever Mother's Day gift to me!
He's done the paper crumpling and the finger printing on it!
The Big Mother's day.
I wanted to make something special for my mom
and had to make Jon's pretty heart.
but we had a fierce hailstorm and there was
no electricity for nearly half the day....
no access to the net!
Eventually I could make it in the evening by dinner time
and had to wait till then to give mummy my gift.
I've never tatted up something so fast!
My fingers were hurting!
But my mom loved it
and now it's going to hang on the wall of her bedroom.
Used up the earlier little tatted things I'd made
and Jon's Heart was the cherry on the cake.
Here's a closer view of the Mother's Day Heart by Jon.
Thanks Jon for sharing the pattern of this lovely heart.
Sorry if I've made some mistake as it was almost done from memory.
See even the glue can be seen thru !
Then had to complete Vaasu's homework.....
How, but to finish and garnish it with a little TATTING!!!!
Last, but in no way the least,
this is what I've made for the Design-tat group.
We were given a picture of a snowflake
and were supposed to design a tatting pattern on it.
The snowflake has turned out to be a Doily instead!!!!!
Can you see the butterflies in the outer round?
I'll finish the 25 Motif challenge with this one.
I'd love to start another round soon and hope it will be as exciting as this one.
I did not wish to make this post so long
I hope you've read it thru and enjoyed it!
If you have, Thanks a million for it.
I generally get lost reading long written out posts!

Your Design Tat Doily is fabulous! Yes, I can see the butterflies. They were the first thing to jump out at me. The variegated colored and white threads look great. You are so talented. I love seeing what you've designed and hope you share this one with us.

You have been super busy! No wonder your fingers are hurting!

I hope your husband's BP is better and Happy Belated Birthday to your sweet boy! That Mother's Day gift he gave you is very sweet.

Jon's heart turned out so pretty and that looks like such a sweet gift to give your own Mother!

Love you designed snowflake doilies! Yes I do see the butterflies! You are so very talented.

It's so nice to be able to comment and tell you! :)
