Happy Birthday Mom!


Last week was a roller-coaster of a week
it began with my father in hospital after a bad fall
and ended with all of us in my parents' house
celebrating my mom's birthday


My sister baked an excellent chocolate cake
(you can tell that we did her proud)
and the table was decorated with candles
that I'd cosied with bits of embroidery

  1. Happy birthday to your mom and fast recovery to your dad! I LOVE your embroidered pieces. In fact I am so overtaken by embroidery right now, I have returned to my textile projects and I am doing some embroidery on necklaces right now! Have a lovely Thursday!

    1. Thanks! I love embroidery as long as we're talking little projects :-)
      A necklace sounds intriguing, looking forward to the post.

    1. Well, it couldn't hurt, could it? And he IS improving rapidly.
      There is no doubting the power of chocolate.
