Happy Mothers Day and a few stitchy bits!!

Well I hope all you Mums out there are having a lovely day I've been spoilt by my boys.
I've been to my second block of the month for my Medallion quilt it was flying geese, which I really enjoyed doing though I had a little problem on the day in that my sewing machine started to 'die a death' so to speak so I only got one strip completed. My machine was over 20 years old so my DH treated me to a new one, it's a Husqvarna 100Q and I'm in love with it. You don't have to use a foot pedal if you don't want it's got a stop/start ( I know many of you will know about these things already but I didn't so I just find it amazing and so so quiet compared to my old one)!!!! Her's a picture of it so far
I've got a few stitchy things on going which I keep having a little turn at, I prefer to have a few so I don't get a little bored and start making mistakes!!!
One is chart/quilt from Six Penny Memories
A Country Spirits Easter chart
My crochet skills are getting a little better!!!
Here's a photo of my two Grand-daughter with yet more trophies for their ballroom/latin dancing, they're running out of space for them all
a real pair of cuties!!!
I'm off out dining now, I'm taking Mum and Dad out for Mothers day lunch then it will be stitching the rest of the day as I will be too full to any ironing!!!! (that's my excuse anyway) hehe!!!
Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend
