HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!!!
Today my mother turned 29, again. Really. She has an apron and everything to prove it. I t says-"29 and Holding".
So in addition to the yoga mat bag I posted about yesterday I gave her a few other things to go in it.
Two towels and a matching bag to put her yoga strap and other odds and ends in the bag.
I also added one of the two needle cases I made from the Be Mine Blog tour.
I made two because of printer issues I had to hand draw my patterns which ended up smaller then the original.
I loved the large red buttons I found in my button stash. Most are form my grandma's house. Mom thinks they may have been on a little red coat.
I used a little chick retro print and added some cute heart pins. My new little Gingher embroidery scissors fit perfectly. I gave mom a pair for Christmas.
I still have some Gingher embroidery scissors in 4 different styles in my Etsy store if any one is interested. Use the coupon codes BMBT2010 for a 20% discount.
I also finished the pillow from the blog tour.
When I posted my pics in the Be Mine Blog flickr group I saw Kim's Big Quilting Adventure had posted a pic of an awesome Valentine tree skirt. You can find pics and instructions for making it here. One more thing for my list to make.
Tomorrow hopefully we may take a day trip and antique along the way and may be a quilt store too!
