Kids and Traditions.

Every year, our kids make us cards.  For Birthday's, Mother's Day and Father's Day.  This year was no exception.  They remember humorous things which have happen over the years and incorporate those in their cards.  Be it a reference or an artwork.  These cards I treasure the most.  I reflect on how lucky we are, as some families this past week, have lost everything in the wildfires in Fort McMurray, in Alberta.  As one Mother to another, we send you all our Love.  Is there any Quilter's  who is making quilts for the families who have lost everything, please let me know.  I will gladly post, your request on the CheerfulChickadee!
Instead of a bunch of flowers, a planter instead.
On our walk this morning, the level of the water is right down.
The weir is visible again.
 The rainbow trout in the stream.
 Their babies.
This one came swimming past!
Love Entwined, found some more treasures.
 The pop of colour, which will be used very sparingly, is this purple.
Too find the right fabric for my shapes, they are traced on some clear template plastic and carried in a little book with me.  Stumbled across this fabric, for the angels.   It almost looks like a three leaved clover.

                                                              Happy Mother's Day!

  1. Hi Maggie, how wonderful that you have trout in the river, do they fish them? We have a lot of rainbow and brown trout in most of our rivers and lakes and are stocked regularly so people can fish all year round but you have to have a licence. To do so. Great to see your LE fabrics are growing. Hugs Glenda
