I miss fabric shopping with her, and sewing with her, and gossiping with her. So, I am making her things for when she gets back!!! Surprise (or not so much now!) Mom. I just finished the (we all made these) offset square pin cushion, and set it with a vintage button.
The other item is a needle book. I copied the embroidered needle from someone's blog...I'm sorry I can't remember who. If it is yours, let me know, and I'll give you credit! Thanks!
The other "presents" were made for me by my children. I lamented, yesterday, that the laundry is never done. I was determined today to DO it!
After unloading the laundry baskets, and picking up countless pairs of socks, undies, and jeans from my kids rooms.....I realized that we need to make some new rules in our house.
Rule #2-see rule one.
8 people, school clothes, play clothes, sport uniforms, jammies, socks, undies........I need a bigger laundry room!!! One that will fit a recliner, TV, and a Diet Coke machine. I would get so much more laundry done if the washer would reward me with chocolate after each load!
