It is possible to have too much wine, but not too many wine tags. For those of you who would like immediate (cross stitch) gratification, you can quickly stitch the shell and the seahorses from the Dolphin Play charts. Use leftover perforated paper, thread and beads. Stitch in different colors, four shades for each shell so people can tell which wine glass is theirs. I also did four rows of each of four blues, dark at the bottom to light. The tags are Quickutz die cuts on acid free card stock, glued on with acid free tacky glue.
Here is also what’s going on in the garden. The Nellie Moser clematis was accidentally pruned to the ground a few months ago, and here she is, four feet tall and showing off! And the Columbines come back in their shady little corner every year.
A Mother’s Day conversation:
Husband: Happy Mother’s Day!
Me: Thank you. And thank you for all your hard work in making this day possible for me, turning me from a carefree young lady into a mother.
Son: Happy Mother’s Day!
Me: Happy turning me into a mother day, just by your very existence.
So, Mother’s Day is a group effort, as it takes a lot of people for a mother to exist. So we can all celebrate each other. (I know I will be celebrating everyone again on Father’s Day.)
