Happy (belated) Mothers' Day


Ok, so it's been more than a week since Mothers' Day, but I've finally gotten around to blogging about it. I've been wanting to make one of these knitting needle rolls for myself, and I will, but thought mum might like one to get her needles all organised too.


I followed this tutorial, but I made a mistake when cutting out the fabric. When I was supposed to cut two pieces of the main fabric 16" x 15" I managed to cut one of them 15" x 15". So then I decided that I would use it for the outer bit and splice in the contrast fabric instead of over-laying it. So I did that, making it bigger than it needed to be, and trimmed it back and then MADE IT TOO SMALL AGAIN!!! So I added those bits at the top and bottom, hahahaha. Let's just say it was a lesson in "Measure twice, cut once". Or even a series of lessons....


Anyway, I had a great Mothers' Day. The kids all slept in. AMAZING! Then I had breakfast in bed, where I was gifted Ferrero Rocher, fluffy slippers and some snap-dragon seedlings for the garden. (Any idea why the boys chose snapdragons?) We then went out to visit my mum on the farm and had a lovely roast dinner. We have had a few really beautiful, sunny days since Mothers' Day, which have seen me out in the garden, planting my seedlings and bulbs and moving around some rose bushes, and (ahem) not updating my blog....

What did you do for Mothers' Day? Did you get fluffy slippers and chocolates too? Did you visit your mother?
