Late Mother's Day Gift

I finally finished the cross stitch pillow cushion from one of the Cath Kidston's book for my mother in law that i supposed to give it to her on Mother's day but sadly i didn't finish it on time, after some long tiring months with lots of distractions and other things to make, i finally finished it and yesterday I was able to give it to her, thank god she loves it!

After we spent a few hours at hubby's parents, we took a walk to the park and on the beach, i must say i took loads of pics coz the park is so beautiful with blooming flowers, but i wont post all of the pics in this entry :)

These were taken at Denton Gardens, one of the park in my town near the beach, Lovely isn't it? I'll be posting more pics in other posts.

  6. Susan, the pillows are lovely! You've done a beautiful cross stitching, and the whole pillow design is wonderful.

    On the bright side, they can be an early Mother's Day gift...

    The Gardens are very pretty...I wish I had brought my camera to work the other day, because there was a hummingbird in the floral department, and he must have thought he was in Eden. I got to watch him up close...what an amazing little thing.

    Thank you for sharing all...many blessings to you,
