Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day to all moms, and to my crafty and awesome mom! My sewing room has got very little action this week, so I don’t have much to show. But here is a little eye candy: my mom’s Hello Kitty Cake Pops (Keroppi and Chococat). So cute, right?

The other week, I wrote a guest post on Money Saving Mom and was featured in the handmade conversations series on Craft Foxes. As if that weren’t nice enough, it was also a week of new craft books.

First, there was Reinvention (Wiley). I was a pattern tester for this lovely upcycling book, and I’m working on a review, so stay tuned! And another new book, The Fat Quarterly Shape Workshop for Quilters (Lark Crafts). Love this quilting resource and will share more soon.

In other news, I cannot believe how quickly Quilt Market has come up, but I leave this Thursday for Kansas City! Looking forward to meeting some blog friends and I promise to take lots of photos while I’m there.
