Day 22 of 100 Freebies

Password is 100freebies
Hello again everyone. I hope you all had or are having a wonderful Mothers Day today. I was treated to breakfast in bed which was totally awesome. It even came with a gorgeous tiny daffodil from the garden. I wasn't expecting anything at all so it was a lovely surprise. All in all, its been a pleasently chilled out day for me. I hope you've all enjoyed that same sense of peace and joy.
Todays freebie is this adorable set of 2 crochet flowers. Remember when crochet was all the rage? My mum was a wizz with the crochet hooks and my sisters and I were never so well dressed. Of course, when she crocheted me a swim suit I had to show it off at our local Open Air baths (no longer there). Lets just say it was an experience that was to mark me for life, hehe. Why did no one warn me that wool EXPANDS when wet!!!!! Yup, the whole crowd got a view I'm sure they still talk about to this day and it was more then my very red face. I never went back there ROFL.
Anyway, hope you enjoy these little beauties. You can grab them here or click on the preview.

I found another little treasure in my Blossoms treasure chest of goodies. This lo comes from Lynn using my Mother Kit, most approriate for today don't you think and I love roses. She did this lo for one of the SAS challenges. Isn't it great. Thanks hun, I love it.

And our lovely Amy did this lo, also for a SAS challenge (clever girls my Blossoms) all about her Grandmothers Love. I know only too well what she went through. My own darling Grandmother suffered too and spent her last year with me and the children. While it was the most difficult time of my life, I wouldn't change a single second. I'm so glad I got to be with her every day for that final year. Miss you Grandma but I know you're still with us all. Love you.

I couldn't resist showing off these gorgeous lo's my girls have done using my Everything You Are kit. This one is from Lois and shows us her beautiful Grandaughter, Brianna. Interestingly, that was the name I was going to use for the heroine in a book I was writing a while back. Yet another project shelved for the time being, hehe, I'm such a procrastinator. Anyway, I love how Lois used the kit for this super lo.

Here's another one by Lois. This time she cleverly used an royalty free image from the net. How cool does this lo look. I love it. Thanks Lois, you're a star.

And finally, here is one from our Rebecca, better known as Aldercreek at SAS. What a fantastic lo and isn't that horse just gorgeous. I think horses are the most beautiful creatures. Hey, that reminds me, The famous Grand National should be happening soon. Red Rum, famous for winning this amazing horse race three times was born, bred and trained right here in Southport and the race takes place in Aintree just up the road from us. I'm not a gambling person but every year Mum and I put a £1 bet on our favourite horse in the race. Its great fun to watch. Grandad was such a big fan of this event and adored Red Rum, even to the point of having limited prints of the horse and rider up on his walls.

Thanks for this lovely lo hun. Another winner I think. Here's a closer look at my 'Everything You Are' kit which you can get at SAS, DID and CLD
