Moving It Forward

I hope everyone had a beautiful Mother’s Day yesterday. I feel so blessed to be a mother. It brings me my greatest joys. I am also ever so grateful for my mom, my grandmothers, aunts, sisters and friends who buoy me up, cheer me on, strengthen, love  and mother me. I am truly blessed.

In addition to celebrating Mother’s Day, last Monday was my birthday. To celebrate I was treated to a relaxing day. I enjoyed an awesome message, a fun yoga class, and a little scrappy play. These cute little birds were the result. I’m looking forward to creating more along with a few other improv blocks.

Other progress this week included turning the heels in my socks. Oh this makes me excited. Can’t wait for another pair of hand knit socks.

 I also can’t wait to see what progress you have made this week. Link up and share what you’re moving forward.

    A very happy belated birthday! The scrappy birds must be fun to make, your sock makes me want to knit another pair but I must finish a cardigan first.

    I just love your birds, Em. I can't wait to see what you do with them.

    The socks look toasty. I'll bet they will feel great.

    You have a nice selection of the blacks for the bird backgrounds (at least they look black in the picture). My black stash is not very good right now.
