Mother's Day Flowers and more

Hi all! Hope everyone had a great weekend. It was quiet for the most part here which is always welcome. LOL Mother's Day we took my MIL out to lunch along with my BIL/SIL. We had a great luncha and lots of it, great food. The kids were in Vegas with their dad for the weekend so it was quiet here. We have been on major puppy watch but no puppies as of yet. Major nesting going on today though, keep your fingers crossed.
Well, my oldest, Brianna, brought over flowers on Mother's Day for me, very pretty red roses in a really cool vase.

I rec'd another ornament for the HO HO HO ornament exchange i am in from Shelleen. Shelleen also sent along some goodies that are wonderful! Thanks so much Shelleen!!! I love it all!

I do have a couple "finish finishes" to share. Michele had given me a bunch of her stitching finishes to "finish" for her however i would like (trusting me with her stitching). LOL Well, i chose Peace by LHN that Melinda stitched for her in the Fair & Square exchange awhile ago. I made it into a pinkeep ornament for MIchele. I really like how it turned out myself. Also, i went through my F&S's and found a perfect one to make a pincushion out of. This is from Lynda A in one of my favorite colors, purple. I think i am going to add a bead to the middle of it though, we'll see. I used poly pellets to fill it.

I have an exchange that is en route so can't show that one as of yet. And that is about all for now.
