I generally use gutermann beads from John Lewis who stock a large range of different colours and sizes.

Past Mother’s Day Cards

I’m having problems with my scanner at the moment so despite having made 40 Mother’s Day cards this year, I can’t show them off yet. However, I did think it was an appropriate time to blog some of the cards I’ve previously made for this occasion.

They may be time consuming but you can’t beat a hand-stitched card. These are all based on designs bought from

It’s an excellent website and 10% of the sale of patterns is donated to an international children’s charity. You receive the patterns instantly in a pdf format that you can print out. You can even sell your cards as long as you use their design copyright labels on them. I’d definitely recommend taking a look.
