Spring and Mother's Day Inspiration

I've noticed that most of the crafty blogs I follow sort of revolve around the next holiday and how to decorate or make gifts for those occasions. That's good in a way because now that I have everything in my Google Reader I can just see it all in one place! Here are some AWESOME links for Mother's Day projects but I think these would also be fabulous for just general spring projects too.

Dana's Fabulous Blog, MADE

Cute tutorial for a scarf over here at Ruffles and Stuff
Grosgrain (she doesn't have a cute badgey thing, can you believe it?!)
But she IS amazingly talented and she SHARES her talents!
So have you seen any awesome ideas out there in blogland lately? Have you posted any on your blog? Please do share!
Oh, and don't forget that some moms totally LOVE fabric and would LOVE to get a gift certificate to their favorite online shop (ahem). We have gift certificates available now! It's an option in the left sidebar of our shop. If you have any problems with them, please let me know ASAP and I'll work to resolve them. (Haven't actually had anyone test out the option yet.)
And finally, some BIG news! I got a job! I've been "unemployed" since January, from the job that helped pay the household bills and as of Monday May 3, I'll be employed full time. This is a double edged sword because I am really enjoying a) sleeping late b) getting to do whatever I want all day long (yeah right) BUT I didn't enjoy the stress of wondering how we'd pay the bills every month. SO my main goal is to TEACH Regina (the other crafty girl) how to post so that none of our awesome readers feel neglected. I'll still be around, hopefully just as much, but if it's sort of quiet around here for a few days, at least you know why.
I guess that's it for now. Hope you have fun checking out those inspiring sites!
Happy Stitches,


  1. Congratulations on the new job! I totally get what you mean about the double edge sword, though. I love being home but money is always a worry!

  2. Congratulations on your new job!! I hope it's something you'll enjoy. :)

  3. Congrats on the job. I dream of being able to take an extended period off of work...sigh...aint never gonna happen.

    And didn't we just have a Mother's Day? Oh...that was a full year ago...guess I better go present shopping then.

  4. My mom is really hard to find something for because she has really limited space, so I love finding or making little things for her. Thanks for the ideas!!

  5. Congratulations on the new job! :) Love these links :) Thanks for your comment on my blog the other day- I LOVE the idea of adding in pretty fabric pieces to the bath rug!!! What a great way to instantly make it match any bathroom :) And thanks for the link about making my blog carbon neutral- def. going to check that out too :)

  6. Congrats on the new job! I did check out the grosgrain site and like her work and clothing chic. thanks
