Happy Mother's Day!!

Happy Mother's Day to every mom, step mom, grandma, aunt, mom to little furry friends......
It  was a good day here! Mark and I drove to Nipigon to meet my mom, sister and brother in law for lunch. They were on their way to the city. My mom has been staying with my sister since her surgery, almost two weeks ago. It was nice to see them, and to visit with them. My sister looks great, though you can see she is in pain, and not very comfortable. She needs to heal, before she starts her treatment.
I made my mom a necklace yesterday, pearls, jade and             
lampwork beads from Gillianbeads. I love the way it turned out, it is gorgeous. I was able to give it to my mom at lunch.
We did drive through rain and snow this morning, yuck. There was snow sticking on the ground in Nipigon, and it snowed quite heavy on our way home.

Tomorrow is my big day of basket weaving with the students at St. Martins. I am a little nervous, but after a dry run yesterday with a couple of friends I do know it is works. I have a little more prep work tonight, then will be ready to go late tomorrow morning. I will post tomorrow night, about how the day went. I hope the kids will love it, even if it is used cardboard and plastic.
