Mother's Day

Today was Mother's Day here in the U.S.A., and it was wonderful!

Dave had to work, as this is his busy season, but he gave me a beautiful planter to celebrate the day.

There's always a ton of paperwork this time of year, and grandson Aidan chipped in by alphabetizing checks that needed to be recorded.

Granddaughter Eva gave band weaving a try, and she said it was very relaxing. She even learned to pick out mistakes! I offered to set up a loom for her to take home, but she declined. Maybe I can get her hooked this summer. 😉

Daughters Alison and Carol prepared a fabulous meal for dinner... country ribs, roasted potatoes, asparagus, and a salad. We were all stuffed! Unfortunately, I didn't think to take a picture of the meal.

I finished my second band in this zig zag pattern, this time in red and black. The thread definitely makes a difference! This is in size 10 crochet cotton, where the pink and black band was in size 5 polyester crochet thread. The size of thread may have been a factor because of the length of the floats. I think I'll have to do some more experimenting to determine whether or not to use polyester thread for future projects.

Tonight I plan on making my Ice Drop for the day, and then I'll be off for a good night's sleep!

Happy Mother's Day to all of the mothers out there!
