moms flowers

This Saturday was my mother’s birthdate.  I cannot believe she has been gone ten years now.  I was really saddened this year, and my daughter spent some time with me here just sitting quietly.  We put the flowers in the front there.  My father had gone earlier and placed those on top.  Amazingly we picked the same color fuschia!


Sewing for others

This week, I took in two quilts for binding.  It has been a lot of fun, and a lot of time poking my little fingers, to get them done by the weekend.  I still have a wee bit left on one, but the other I am delivering this morning…for commission!  Woohoo!  A love of hand sewing paying off.  Just a little spending money, but hey, fabric money comes from anywhere!

I found this 3/4 sleeve top at Kohls today for 90% off!  I paid 3.60 for this Croft & Barrow beauty.  I held it up and my daughter said, oh it is very you!

but I just don’t get the whole food in a mason jar fad. Why? If I’m going to have to make a salad for lunch, I’m sticking that bad boy in a plastic container, probably square, that I can eat all things evenly. Big party, trifle dish, not puny jars. Can you explain this to me?

moms day

While I appreciate a dozen roses, I just love mixed bunches of flowers.  My family is celebrating Mothers’ Day all weekend, with a grilling out, flowers, cards, chocolate pie, and lots of family time.  It helps me not miss my own mom so much by staying so busy.
