Lucky Day May 10, 2010

I think I had the best Mama’s day EVER!

R. started nagging D. at 6:30am yesterday to “get up and make Mama breakfast in bed” (isn’t she thoughtful, he he).

I should have suspected something when D. asked how I make MY tea…it is a very involved process involving precise measurements of loose tea, honey, and milk and a TIMER, ha ha…needless to say he has never attempted to make it before!

“Close your eyes Mama” R.’s sweet little voice instructed me.

And wouldn’t you know it, along with my breakfast, my tea was served in this special Emma quote mug (have I mentioned how much of a Jane Austen fanatic I am???) that reads:
There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort.

Wink, wink, thanks Molly for pointing D. in the PERFECT present direction on Etsy!

And AS IF that special morning wasn’t enough…I won a giveaway over at Fat Quarterly…no foolin’!

I am soon to be the proud owner of a copy of”Whip Up Mini Quilts” by Kathreen Ricketson!

Thank you Fat Quarterly =0)

If you haven’t checked out Fat Quarterly’s FANTASTIC premier issue make sure you do (here).

Wishing you all a lucky day too!

Happy sewing,
