Scones, Fabric and Family

So today was Mother’s Day here in Australia and I think Mum got spoilt just a little bit.

After spending yesterday afternoon at my brother’s for a lovely barbeque, he gave her a beautiful tea set including some delicious tea leaves (Mum has already had 2 cups of tea, must be good). This afternoon was spent at my house where she was given a beautiful bunch of flowers, a card and a bottle of wine, also, a cappuccino with fresh baked scones with a dish of cream and a pot of jam ๐Ÿ™‚

After some relaxing and chatting we went out and did some girl stuff and left the boys at home to relax and watch T.V. First stop on the list was a fabric shop for some fabric to go with the new quilt she is making.

We spent at least half an hour wandering around trying to find just the right kind of fabric before settling on the lovely selection in the photo below.

I can’t wait to see the progress of this adorable quilt ๐Ÿ™‚

After the shopping was all done it was off to our next stop for a bit of a treat, KFC where we bought the giant feast (there was 4 of us to feed) and Mum was given a Happy Mother’s Day card which entitled her to a free 3 months subscription to 1 of the 3 magazines on offer. What a lovely surprise!

After we had well and truly filled our bellies we had a bit more of a chat, looked through some quilting magazines and before we knew it, it was time for Mum to head on home.

Happy Mother’s Day Mum, hope you had a wonderful day ๐Ÿ™‚
