Mothers Day Gift idea

Well Mothers Day is fast approaching and aren’t we grateful for our mums, they are a joy in our lives and so important to recognise what they do for us every day, but especially on Mothers Day.

My Mum is an inspiration in so sew many ways. She will be 78 this June and just a bundle of energy, always in the garden, or her sewing room, or doing something for others.

I found this gorgeous card in BallyHoo, which is a most delightful shop in Geelong, packed with hand-made goodness. The card was made by a lovely local girl who doesn’t have a blog yet, but if you would like one of her creations you should call into BallyHoo in Ryrie Street, Geelong, or stop by their Facebook page.

Love You Mum card

Last year I gave my Mum some flowers – I made these and they still are still fresh in their vase on her side table.

Simple to make – mine were constructed with a Clover yo yo maker and stitched on to pipe cleaners. They make a lovely gift all year round, and I find myself collecting little vases on visits to the op shop!

Here is a photo of how I attached the pipe cleaners.

These flowers are SewUpMyAlley!
