Mother’s Day Surprise

Hello from London,

where I was reminded since weeks that this Sunday will be mother’s day! Coincidentally, weeks ago, I had booked a flight home to see my family this weekend. Thus, I was faced with the challenge to come up with a nice mother’s day gift. Looking at my handcrafting of the last weeks, I thought my mother would like the mimosa stitching. Combined with some yellow fabric and an old pillowcase I made a little tablecloth.

A bit skew-whiff but not to bad I think. Well, I think my mother liked it. Especially, as she enlightened me, that in Germany mother’s day is not until mid-may :-) We made the «english mother’s day» perfect by baking a cake and having a nice afternoon tea (thus actually I am writing this from Hagenbach in Germany :-) ).

Happy premature mother’s day!
