Happy Mothers Day

Happy Mothers Day! I don’t know about you but I am so happy to enjoy a day dedicated to what has ultimately helped me become a better person. My kids teach me something new each day and I am so thankful to be given the opportunity to help guide them and teach them the most important lesson in life. To love. I am blessed to be a mother of two wonderful boys. As I enjoy my time today I wish everyone a blessed day. Without mothers where would any of us be?

Happy Mothers Day! ~lauraj

Freecycle Fabric & Findings

First, I apologize for not posting. Pinterest changed the way they share links and I have yet to adapt. I have about 5 posts “pending” me correctly linking them. Sigh. Oh well, brain exercise is good for me.

On to the Freecycle news! A few weeks ago I was the lucky recipient of Betty’s fabric castaways. Oh how giddy I was! Most of it was holiday print but still, free is free! Betty said her mother had passed on and she was cleaning out her fabric stash. She said she would keep my number and call me when she had more.

Betty called me yesterday and I met up with her. She had a bag of zippers and lace bindings. Spools of thread and sewing machine needles. Of course a box of fabric was waiting for me. This time full of knits, cotton prints and velour. I am so excited! The funny thing is that I was having a bad day yesterday. I started sketching out some tote bag designs and she called. Perfect timing! What a wonderful way to turn my day around.

Do you Freecycle? Anyone else get something amazing on Freecycle? I saw a post requesting a serger. I think if you could get one of those for free, well, THAT would be amazing!

Have a blessed day ~lauraj
