Love Mothers Day

Wonder what all this might make
Sweet baby fabric

Maybe a table runner or two?

AWWWW, wouldn't this be a great baby girl quilt?

Something for fall who knows what yet

Had the best Mothers Day at Brunch with all the kids and Grands. Rambo man made it home in time to join us so the family was complete. We brought Tyler home to help Papaw with some projects for Nanny, NEW SCREEN DOORS!! Ya, me. I had to make a double batch of M&M cookies to keep the fellas strength up to finish the project and to pass around with Starbucks Carmel apple cider dressed up in sweet cozies for Daughter #3 and all the ladies that had to work on Mother Day, also hooked up a few neighbor ladies and friends as a special little treat in the evening. LOVE having the time and means to give out a few little "Feel Good" gifts.

While at Starbucks picking up a whole lotta cider!! Everyone in the place wanted a cozie, I had just enough with me to finish up my little prize run for the day so I couldn't sell what I had but 2 ladies ordered 10 each that I will get to them Thursday evening!!
I told them $10.00 each, they never blinked an eye, they were so excited to get their hands on some. The fella in the line behind me (let him go ahead since I had such a big order) told me to make a pile of them and get them on the market, hum.... I ask him if he thought they were cute, he just laughed and said the ladies in his office would go nuts if they saw them. Of all the sewing I do and the time it takes I can't believe people would pay that much for something so very simple, go figure!!

I will be picking up $200.00 Thursday evening after dropping off the little girls and put back for my fabric fund. Our fabric store that is closing is running a 60% off the end of bolt sale until they sell out. That's where I scored all the yummy fabric above on Saturday. I went in with no plan or project in mind but the wheels were turning let me tell you. Now that I know how good the sale is (and I have $200.00 bucks) I will get a list together of what I really do need/want for patterns I have picked up or made up lately.

Yesterday's post received the most hits of any posts I have ever had on this blog. I was worried that it might be to much to share but felt in my ever growing gut it was the right thing to do. Sometimes we all need a kick in the butt to bring us to our knees and thank God for all the blessings we have, even if those blessings make us crazy!!


  1. Look at all that gorgeous fabric!! Love it! And what a score selling those coffee cozies! Awesome! :)
