My Mummy

It was my Mummy's birthday last week and I meant to do this post then as a birthday tribute to her but it kinda got away on me!

Anyway, my Mummy is amazing, she is not very grown up, she makes me laugh like no one else can, you know that crying from laughter, snorting from laughter kind of laughter, when I am sick or broken she will clean my house and do my ironing (if I let her), she has more energy than anyone else I know and she is the most creative talented person I know.

I am lucky to have been the recipient of her talents over the years, for instance one Christmas I got this...
incredible crazy patchwork umbrella!

it's a work of art, lots and lots of tiny embellishments and her beautiful needlework.

The mosaic piece was my gift two Christmas's ago, made from broken china I had saved over the years,

and the needlework wall hanging was a gift some years ago.

Her grandchildren benefit from her creativeness as well, 

handmade felt slippers for the Princess, 

a beautiful felted vest

and a crazy patchwork bag with beautiful hand stitching.

When I grow up I hope to be just as creative as my Mummy!

A happy belated birthday Mummy!

I love you

Does your mummy sell any of her creations. They are amazing. She surely is a very talented lady. I love that umbrella, and can't believe what she made for you out of your broken dishes. I can definitely see where you have gotten your talents from.
