What a lovely relaxing mother's day I had today. Okay, so the kids decided that 5:30am was a good time to start the day, but being the dutiful hubby Darren is, he was out of bed to look after them so I could sleep in.
The kids insisted I have brekkie in bed, not my favourite thing to do, I would rather be at the table but I didn't let on. They all sat with eager eyes waiting for compliments while I ate and then I got my lovely homemade cards, some lollies wrapped up, a lovely handmade bookmark and some chocolates and a rose. I feel very spoilt and the kids really put in a lot of effort.
They even tried to behave and not fight for my sake, I'm so proud of them.

Now, onto other news......
My little Janome has decided to co-operate after about 5 hours of trying to get it to free motion quilt, it's working, well sort of. If I use the same colour cotton for the top and bobbin I can get away with it, unfortunately trying to find a cotton that suited the top and back of this quilt proved to be a huge challenge, so this is the best I can do for now. Mind you, going down and seeing the price of my upgraded machine forced me to keep trying to get this one working.

So G-Inspired CJ girls, do you know what this next photo means? Yes that's right I'm nearly there girls, here are the tags, cj's are not far behind. Thank you for your patience.
Please excuse the messy workspace :)


  1. I looked at upgrading my machine too and got that same idea.

    Hope you had a great mothers day and didn't end up with crumbs in the bed!
