Check Out My New Undies!!

I can't tell you how happy I am to have four brand new pairs of skivvies. Aren't they beautiful? And sooooo roomy! I mean, there is almost room for two of me in there.

Liberty boxers

Finally! Some Liberty prints for me. I realize they are on boxer-short-quality cotton, but hey, us cheapskates gotta take what we can get (afford!). Thanks to my sweet friends (Susan who lives south of the border and kindly made a Target run for me, and Jennifer who lives around the corner but recently visited Susan) these Mens size XL boxers have made their way into my sewing room. Now, what to do with them? I am trying to dream up ideas for using the elastic waist bands for some clever purpose...anyone? Anyone? Ideas welcome.

It was a dreamy, sunny, warm, still Mother's Day here yesterday. The kids made me lovely gifts at school and at home. T made a hemp macrame key fob. That's so funny because I think when I was his age I made macrame kitchen wall hangings for my mom and every one of her friends - I was a macrame addict! He also found instructions online to make an origami tulip complete with stem and leaf. D's teacher taught them how to soak and then alter photographs with sandpaper scratching and paint. They are really cool. She wanted to make sure Flynn had a chance to get in on the Mother's Day action, so when he finally woke up and came bounding down the stairs, this was attached to his collar:

flynn mothers day

B made a delicious breakfast of French Toast, strawberries & cream. Yummy!

Moms Creative Day on Saturday was super fun. I never get as much done as I hope to, but seeing everyone else's beautiful jewelry, knitting, x-stitch, quilting, scrapbooking, painting and weaving is inspiration enough to come home and get busy.

On Wednesday I'm heading out of town with two fun friends for 5 whole days of quilting, thrifting, antiquing, reading, eating, laughing. Before I go, I want to let you know that I will have a giveaway next Monday! I'm participating in the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day and I'm going to make something fabulous for you to win (hint: I've recently made two, one for a swap and one for me!). There will be all kinds of amazing things to win next Monday, so set some time aside to troll the internet and check out some new blogs.

Here's to a fantastic week! Thanks for stopping by.

Sounds like you had a fabulous Mothers day. They are the best especially when the little people have made the gifts themselves. Have a lovely break xxx

Gosh, Susan and Jennifer found the GOOD undies! :-) I've only found three different prints in the undies so far. Well, only purchased one print. I need to get out more. Sounds like you had a terrific Mother's Day! Have FUN on your quilting trip!! ::sigh:: We'll be here awaiting your return. All bored and such. ;-)

I have those navy boxers too. The XL are huge! I'm still waiting to see projects that people have done out of the Liberty stuff from Target. I've got dresses cut up and ready to go, but my other darn WIPs are getting in the way of transforming them.

It sounds like you've got some great time away coming up! Have lots of fun!
