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!

Keep dreaming…Colleen

Lovely gifts for your Mom. Your heart pin-keeps came out beautiful - love the buttons. The little 'peep' fabric is a great touch. Great pillow project, too - wasn't that blog tour fun?
