She loved it :o)!!!

I'm so pleased she did ..... my Mum loves handmade pressies :o)!!
Here she is with me on her birthday ..... and here are the goodies I put in the bag for her ....... These are English favourites of Mum's. Theres a Pork Pie (eaten cold of course), Fruit and Malt loaf (or "sticky bread" as we used to call it when I was a kid!!), Coconut Mushrooms, Clarnico Mints and Murray mints.
I also found a packet of Parma Violets (lollies/sweets) for my brother - he was chuffed to bits :o)!!
.
Here's the fabrics I'm playing with at the moment. Wildflower Serenade 2. So rich and very country ... I'm enjoying the change. I haven't had an awful lot of time to sew lately but I've managed to do about 8 blocks so far and I'm loving how they're turning out :o).Back to the sewing machine ............. ;o)

Oh I remember those coconut mushrooms, I used to have them as a kid in New Zealand. Lovely fabrics.

wow. those are some different treats that I've never seen here in the US! i'm sure your mom enjoyed them!

That fabric is beautiful! I am definitely drawn to country, old-fashioned prints instead of the bright, bold colors that are so popular right now.
have a great day!

smashing pic of you and your mum - she looks lovely and i hope she had a great day.
i have not had malt loaf for years - think i may have to go find some now - a slice, with loads of butter and a cuppa, lovely!
those fabrics are absolutely gorgeous.

Happy birthday, Joy's mum! My own mum is from Plymouth, England. Joy, I just bought a Wildflower Serenade II charm pack and jelly roll earlier today. Great minds think alike they say. Thanks for stopping by to visit my blog!
