Bad Blogger

I have no idea what has happened. It seems like my time has been eaten up by a monster. It has been a busy month and today is just May8th! I guess that’s life. I had jury duty this week and that made for some very looooog days of sitting. I did get called for two cases but didn’t get picked. They were both cases of “people acting badly.” Nothing very interesting as far as I could tell.

I made several Mother’s Day cards and I will post a few of my favorites at the end of this post.

I have also been bitten by the quilt bug. I have always loved looking at quilts but have never thought I could complete one. I still don’t think I can do an entire quilt but I have been enjoying stitching up some bags/purses. They are quick, pretty easy and choosing the fabric is so much fun. It is sort of like picking the perfect paper for greeting cards. Here is my second purse. I forgot to take a picture of my first one 🙂

I used two vintage buttons for the bag. Both were in my mother’s button box that I have had for many years. I love old buttons. Actually I love all buttons both old and new.  I used to play with my mom’s buttons for hours on end when I was a little girl. I still enjoy digging through the boxes, baskets and jars of buttons I own. Do you remember playing Button, Button who’s got the Button? I wonder if children still play that game.

Have a great  Mother’s Day. Take some time to celebrate with all the wonderful mothers in your life.

We are off to Callaway Gardens for the weekend. We wanted to go on a longer trip but jury duty got in the way. The gardens will be beautiful though and we can get some exercise riding bikes and walking.

  1. The mother’s day cards are great as are all of your cards. Hope you are having a fun time in the gardens- expecting to see some pictures of nature and wildlife and maybe even some children.
