I had a wonderful Mother's Day yesterday and hope that you all did too. I love being a mom so much and am so grateful for these little blessings in my life, who are growing way too fast! It was nice to be able to go see my own mom on Mother's Day too. She really is such a good mom to me. From the comments on the giveaway post, you all have wonderful moms too. I was so excited to see all the kind words you all have about having good moms and about enjoying being moms.
It truly made me so happy because I know motherhood is such a great blessing and such important work.
The winner of the fat quarter bundle and long arm quilting gift certificate is Angelia Lanouette who said: "I love my mom because she is always giving to others and never expects or asks for anything in return. I love being a mom because I have two wonderful grown boys (I mean men) who make me very proud."
Congrats Angelia, I will send you an email with all the info.
I love all the little gifts that my family gave to me. The kids all made cute things for me at school and my husband ordered Camille Roskelleys new book: Simply Retro. I love when my kids fill out these all about my mom papers. I found it so funny that he said I really like to "sew quilts for her quilting blog". Ha! It's so true. He also said that I like to kick my kids out of my room and take a 1 hour long nap. He knows me so well!
I was so excited to see that my husband ordered Camille Roskelley's new book: Simply Retro. I was really proud of him for doing it too. I told him a week or so ago about it to give him plenty of time to get it ordered, but knowing that he isn't usually a planner, I figured he wouldn't have it in time. He really surprised me. Way to go hubby!
On Camille's blog, she let us know that one of her readers, Jana, will be doing a quilt-along through the whole book. I really want to do this! I'm going to try to do it (and use up as much of my scraps and stash as possible). It would be fun if you all did it too, so we can follow along together. All of the quilt patterns in the book are so cute so it's not hard to get motivated.
Also I wanted to remind you all that we are still offering 20% off all of our long arm quilting services through the end of May. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or with any questions.
