Mothers' Day Cushion

Although I'm not seeing mum til Tuesday, I managed to get her Cathedral Windows cushion finished in time for Mothers' Day today.


Hidden zipper!


This cushion was a struggle from start to finish, and while there are countless imperfections in it, I think mum will really like it!  And that's all that matters to me.

And my own Mother's day has been lovely!  The sun has been shining 'specially, and I got my favourite kind of pressies - homemade ones!


Lemon Meringue Cupcakes - yum!
I did get another wee thing, which I'm too embarrassed to blog about right now.  But some of you bright sparks may eventually work out what it was!

Hope you've had a relaxing Sunday!
