Midweek already and I've been meaning to add a post for a few days now. I'm back at work after my lovely break and already it feels like I didn't even have a holiday!
This is the little piece I stitched during my holiday, which is going to be a gift for my Auntie. I think I'll frame this.

This week I've started on Part 5 of Santa's Village, Santa's Stocking Store. The next part is on it's way and should be here any day now. I can't believe this series is now half way through. It's been such a fun project to work on this year.
On Sunday Mother's Day was celebrated here in New Zealand. I'm blessed with a wonderful Mum, who is my best friend, and one of the most loveliest and kindest persons I know. I think the world of my Mother in law too, she is a very special, and a very funny, lady too. I'm very lucky that both live nearby so we can see them a few times a week. Hannah loves her Nannie and Grannie very much too.
I decided to bake my gifts for Mother's Day this year and found the perfect recipe in one of the lovely cookbooks I received for my birthday, Gran's Sweet Pantry by Natalie Oldfield.
This Weetbix Deluxe slice turned out just delicious and was a hit with my Mum and MIL. I can see this becoming a regular favourite on the weekend baking list.
And of course, I was spoiled by DH and Hannah. Hannah made a lovely card and a painted rock, and spent ages in her bedroom secretly colouring in this cupcake picture. I loved the mosaic vase filled with chocolates too.
The highlight of my day was enjoying a wonderfully cooked dinner by DH followed by a bit of stitching - just perfect:)
See you soon x
