    Yes. Mom loves cats and one day on pastimes I saw free pattern for the cats meow by south seas. It's bright and colorful just as she likes so I am making it for her. Had hard time finding the panel for it, looked everywhere online, no luck. Went to Pensacola the other day, used to live there, anyway, stopped at A&E store and they had it, yeah. It is the best place for fabric, they have so much. Anyway, she is out of town cruising till the end of may so I have extra time to make it and surprise her when she gets home.

    Thinking about the Walker Bag. I don't think she likes quilts too much since the 1st & only one i made her has been crammed in a closet for years.

    for my mom i'm going to embroider some towels for her guest bathroom. her bathroom is decorated in creams and roses but she has a 20+ year old christmas duck towel hanging in there!! also probably a couple more placemats - her dining table seats 6, but i've only made sets of 4?

    the bf's mom is getting that rotary cutting starter set - got it on sale a couple of weeks ago for $13!!! She's mentioned a few times she wants to try quilting (she's an avid seamstress) so I might dig out a couple of easy patterns and hand it all over...

    Not this year sadly. My mother passed away 7 years ago and my mother-in-law last year. To those who still have their mothers treasure them dearly.

    No, as it kind of snuck up on me. But I am ordering my Aunt Connie a sewing book that she has wanted for a long long time. I think it is - oh shoot- I can't remember the name of it. Better Homes and gardens blah blah blah. My copy is in my office/quilting room in town. My mom passed away in 2007 and my aunt connie has gracefully stepped in to fill some of the void. I love her so much!

    You really should ask her about it. My mother wouldn't use the quilts or afghans that my grandmother (her mother) made for her/us. She put them in the cedar chest. Said grandma went to a lot of work to make them and they weren't to be messed up by us kids. They were to be saved for good and treasured. So she wouldn't make us any more. wouldn't make anything actually. She made stuff for my aunt and her kids all the time because they destroyed their stuff. Gma said they used it and used it up so she would make more. We still had our stuff and didn't need any more. I always felt left out.

    Nope. I got an embroidery machine from DH. I'm making Mom an embroidered handkerchief with crochet edging. She used to crochet edgings on all kinds of things, but arthritis won't let her work with the fine thread anymore. We lost Dad (96) last month, so now Mom (94) is alone. Gifts are for the heart from the heart, not for necessity.
