Mother’s Day

For Mother’s day this year my little sweet four year old found my selvage pieces from some field study FQs and asked if she could make me a pouch with them for Mother’s Day. She was in the midst of asking for a pink zipper and a needle with thread. When I said it is going to be kind of hard to sew all those strips together with a needle and thread so how about we use the sewing machine. She was so gitty! Her sister happened to have gone to sleep early that night which gave me the opportunity to let her use my sewing machine since her Dad was at the movies.

I lined up the strips and fed them into the machine. Lorelei stood in between the sewing machine and me stepping on the presser foot or as she called it the petal. I did set my machine to “sew slow” so she wouldn’t run over my fingers. She sewed all the strips together this way and the zipper. I took over for the top stitching and the assembling of the pouch. She was sooooo proud of her pouch. I love it! She also was thrilled to put the “kitty cat fabric” on the back since I had a spare block from my quilt I am making. I will always remember our first sewing project we made together and will forever cherish it!

She was also very thoughtful and picked out a card for me while shopping with her dad a couple weekends ago. It was perfect!

I am so blessed to be a Mommy to two beautiful little girls and a wife to the love of my life! I wouldn’t have it any other way! I am one lucky girl.


Wishing you all a Happy Mother’s day!

The pouch is lovely. Such a great story. I have a boy, I asked him recently if he wanted to help me make a charity quilt and he said "No, not really". Oh well.
