Love Is?

Standard

This is one of my favourite photographs. It is of my Mum, my Sister and myself. It was the first time that any of us had been to a High St nail bar. We were on holiday with Mum in Blackpool. For me the photograph epitomises the love between a Mother and her Daughters. Mum is poorly in hospital at the moment and Christmas is looking a bit grim. When I next visit I am going to do a manicure for Mum. A girl can always do with some pampering even an 89 year old girl!image

Nails and Puffs

For a few days my sister and I have taken our Mum for a short holiday to Blackpool. Mum loves to shop till we drop! We are staying on a lovely hotel with good food and bad weather! The weather is awful but we can seek sanctuary from the storms in shops and coffee houses. Today we have had a pampering day. We all had our nails manicured and had a Shellac varnish. This was a first for all of us as we were all nail bar virgins! I adore this photograph as for me it symbolises the love and connection between Mother and Daughters.

I have spent some time perfecting the art of knitting these hexigan puffs. They are knit using sock yarn which is a three ply quality. Once you know how, they are simple to make and I am now taking forty minutes to complete each one. They will eventually be made into a cosy quilt. The pattern is from Tiny Owl Knits on Ravelry and is known as “The Beekeepers Quilt”
