Happy Mother's Day to All

Happy Mother's Day!

If you have furbabies (like me) or human babies, grown up babies or grand babies, we appreciate all that you do to make our lives better.

I have 3 furbabies and even though they didn't bring me breakfast in bed, they DID let me sleep in until 10:00am!! Amazing! Yesterday they woke me up at 7:00am. 

I am very lucky because my mom and I are good friends and she really helped me get through my unemployment time by visiting and going to lunch and things. But I also get along really well with my mother in law, who as you probably know, is the other Crafty Girl and is my business partner! Yes, most people are pretty surprised by that but we really do get along superbly and compliment each other's tastes in fabric and projects.

Speaking of projects, I'm going to drag out my scrapbook paper and stamp supplies and make up some Mother's Day cards for my mom and Regina this morning. Do you remember that super bright floral wholecloth quilt I made? My mom saw it and when I mentioned that I might list it on our Etsy shop, she immediately said "I'll buy it!" Well, I couldn't really ask my mom to buy my quilt so I'm going to give it to her for Mother's Day. As for Regina, I gave her a framed picture of Lilith (a.k.a. LilyBelle), her first grandchild who is super adorable, super photogenic and only 7 months old. (I wish she was MY baby, she's so cute!) I'll see if I can get permission to post a picture of her on here, she really is just one of the cutest babies I've seen.

I'm not sure we'll have much response for Spill the Beans Sunday but I'll do a question anyway.

What do you do when you're stressed out to help you relax and feel more "centered"?

My answer to this would, of course, be sew something or at the very least visit my fabric in my sewing room, haha.

I can't wait to see what you respond. Hope you have a fabulous Mother's Day that is relaxing and full of beautiful (and good smelling) suprises.

Happy Stitches,


  1. My answer is one word: Nap.

    That's what I'm going to go do right now....

  2. I'll let you know when I figure it out! LOL Happy Mother's Day

  3. Like Amanda, my stress-response is to sleep. Or veg on the couch with the DVR or something. If I'm stressed my creativity goes downhill so a recharge is the best thing for me.
