There’s not long to go now until us guys and gals in the southern hemisphere celebrate our Mothers :-) Mothering Sunday falls on 9th May this year, and us girls from Among the Gum Trees have been excitedly preparing for this special week to offer you an abundance of ideas and inspiration… with bespoke-designed patterns and other yummy goodies to be shared on the ‘inspiration menu’!
Today I share with you my latest design entitled “To Mum with Love”…
A vintage-inspired fabric envelope for the mum who (seemingly) has “everything”. Just pop your card inside, a lace handkerchief or perhaps some scented sachets… It will even fit a pair of reading glasses.
If you pop on over to Among the Gum Trees you can download the pattern and read the poem I wrote for my very own dear Mum. You are also very welcome to use the poem for your own personal use if you wish to do so :-) For ease, you can also download the pattern here.
Here’s a pic of my beautiful Mum, known to her family as “Gracie”. I love her to bits!!
Giveaway winner announced!
Wow ladies, I had such a fantastic response to my giveaway and I have had such fun visiting your blogs! I never cease to be amazed at how much talent, kindness, humour, inspiration and eye-candy there is “out there”! Thank you so much for your lovely and enthusiastic words about my project. I wish I had the time (and money for postage! LOL) to make hearts for each and every one of you! I will have another giveaway with my Rosie’s Hearts pattern in a couple of month’s time… but on this occasion the winner of my giveaway is Cyndi from Bee Tree Designs.
Congratulations Cyndi! Could you please send me your snail mail address so I can send your goodies on to you? I will also be making you a personalised tag :-)
I appreciate that Australian Homespun magazine is difficult to come by in many countries. There is an international subscription available from Universal Magazines which you can check out here. I hope that helps, but if any of you know a good place to purchase overseas please do let me know so I can pass on the word. :-)
I hope you get lots of inspiration from the Gum Tree Designers… remember, there’ll be something (actually, lots of things!) on the inspiration menu for the next seven days…
Until the next time, happy creating! Vikki x
