Bags and Blocks

I finished a few projects, so mom asked me to post them. She is still moving, but I have heard "rumors" that she has almost got her new sewing room set up!! Maybe she will post a few pictures....

Here are the messenger bags I recently finished for my sister to take on the trek this year. I mostly followed the tutorial from Noodlehead for making a bag from cargo pants...but I did make a few changes..
I also finished sewing my block and my brother's block for our family quilt this year. 

 Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend with family and friends.

Mothers Day

This is a disclaimer......We are still moving stuff.....Life will get back to normal.......

I dont remember it being such an ordeal the last time we moved but my memory isn't what it used to be. I spent the day mowing grass and pulling weeds. My youngest daughter and her two little girls came last night and helped me work on my sewing room and my yard. It was a nice mothers day present. I bought myself 2 rose bushes. An old fashioned pink smelly one and a white one with dark pink edges also a smelly one.

For all the mothers out there.

I often go walking in meadows of clover,
 and gather armfuls of blossoms of blue.
I gather the blossoms the whole meadow over,
Dear Mother, all flowers remind me of you.

O mother, I give you my love with each flower.
To give forth sweet fragrance a whole lifetime through.
For if I love blossoms and meadows and walking,
I learn how to love them dear mother from you.
