My MiNi

I had planned on being in my own Mothers Day MiNi swap... but silly me...
I left my name off the list!
So ?  What to do in this situation?... Well... go play by myself... lol.
It was just as well I didn't have a partner really... as I just LoVe this MiNi and would have had a hard time mailing it off I think! Anyways, it's on display in my entry to celebrate MoTHerS DaY on May 12th!
I took inspiration from part of Val Lairds "Buckets of Love" quilt that was published in Country Threads (Vol 13 #9). I loved the "Bucket of Hearts" so I  incorporated it into my own design for this MiNi. It's made in lovely soft colours and measures 12 x 14 inch. It has one of my "labels" on the back too... just like the other MiNi swappers.
Perhaps NEXT swap I'll be sure to ADD my OWN name...lol!

"Happy Mother's Day" means more

Than have a happy day.
Within those words lie lots of things
We never get to say. 
It means I love you first of all,
Then thanks for all you do. 
It means you mean a lot to me,
And that I honour you.
But most of all, I guess it means

That I am thinking of
Your happiness on this, your day, 
With pleasure and with love
