Mothers Day...


Hubby and I are taking my Mom and Dad out to dinner tonight for Mothers Day and Dad's birthday which is at the end of May.   What do you get someone who has everything already?  Something handmade...  Meals at their house are typically taken out on the sun porch.. so I made them each a place mat...

I used part of a Verna by Kate Spain honey bun... I hope she likes them.. I think I will make another set that is more geared to his colors next..  I didn't have a pattern, just laid the strips over the backing and batting and did a sew and flip method..  Very easy and quick... I think I might make a set for us for the new house..


I am off to a Sew In tomorrow..  There will be food and games and food and some sewing.. I will be working on a zipper pouch for the second daughter, a Yellow Brick Road for a baby boy that will soon enter the neighborhood and a couple of other projects I stashed into the sewing caddy..

Sunday will be spent working at the other house..  This is the last weekend before the flooring goes in and there are lots of last minute things to get done..


Have a good weekend all...

I like that you have your priorities in order: sewing first, other house work second. Good girl.

Enjoy dinner with your parents and hubby! Happy Mother's Day!

The placemats are gorgeous. Don't you love using strips like this? They are so fun to do!
