Mother's Day

Yes, I know it's a little early to be thinking about Mother's Day.  It is three weeks away.

My husband was sitting next to me on Saturday night as I was drooling and dreaming about all the fabric and other sewing-related items I want. *sigh*

Suddenly, out of the blue, he asked me what I wanted for Mother's Day!  What a happy coincidence.  I luckily had windows open of the items that I've been dreaming of.

A Bundle of Bonnie and Camille's Vintage Modern
(I always look here first)

A Just Curves 1/4" Presser Foot
(You can also find this on Amazon, but this website has lots of valuable info and tutorials for this foot)
(If you haven't visited Jenny's blog before, you won't be sorry you stopped in!)

My husband Doug is a wonderful, loving guy.  He is willing to go out of his way to give me what I want, even though I'm sure he rolls his eyes about my sewing obsession most of the time.

With him in school right now, our cash flow is {slightly} restricted.  

He gently informed me that I could go ahead and order the things that I showed him for my own Mother's Day gift, but that I would have to give up flowers and a card from him.

He thinks he's got me there.  I LOVE flowers.  And I LOVE getting cards from him.

But...I can sacrifice the flowers.  And I'm hoping he'll give me a card anyway. :)

What have you had your eye on lately?


  1. What you're getting sounds good to I would like more dies for my Go!Baby too....You have a good man there; he sounds a lot like mine. They can be rare.

  2. I really, really want Jenny's curve ruler too! I've been eyeing it for a while now. One of these days I'm just going to jump in and order it :*)

  4. I love your blog. They inspire me. I have just started blogging recently. I am surely to put you on my following list.

    I am so jealous that you can get lots of fabrics during special days.. hehe :)

    I did get this Vintage Modern set - buy it myself though. :p

    Did you get it for Mother's Day?

    Anyway, feel free to visit my little corner..
