Mother's Day Gift and Herons!

Thanks to all of you who said such nice things about my Mother's Day post.  I enjoyed making that sampler to honor Mom and Grandma. 
My DD,Mrs. Woolpets, made this amazing gift for me.  It is a Woolpets Heron.  One day she and I sat in our favorite coffee shop and saw at least 5 of them fishing in the water near by.  She decided to make me a Heron for Mother's Day.  It is beautiful and I love it.  It will be my summer header.  I have lots of cross stitch to share, but that will be in a later post.  Have a wonderful week!!

 Here is another view of my lovely gift!  This one caught a fish!!

 This one is still trying!

We live near this little town.  We went down to Keyport to take the photos for the header and I noticed that they had put this on all the light posts for summer.
Thanks for joining me!

  16. Your daughter's felt creations are all so wonderful, Barb (did I ever tell you I bought all of her books for our library's craft collection?). The heron is so detailed and unusual--I'm so glad your Mother's Day was special :)
