It's 2am, Do You Know Where Your Mother Is?

Good, cuz I don't.  She's out running the streets with a friend.  They're both night owls and they like to shop without crowds.  And her friend just bought a new home, they might be there drinking tea and discussing paint colors.  I come by my night-owl-ism honestly, it seems.

A couple of weeks ago, Jenny had a give-away and I won - and today the parcel arrived from Australia.  I wish Jenny had come with it.    So beautifully wrapped....

Look at these darling scissors, and the sweetest scissor fob you've ever seen, stitched by Jenny's own sweet hands!

Jenny has a matching pair, so we can snip together across the miles.  But that was not all....oh no....

THE most gorgeous calendar diary in the world.  With attached bookmark, no less.  I have no excuse for forgetting appointments this coming year!  It will be such a pleasure to use, I'll have to write something each day even if I stay home.  I know - prayer requests!  I think that's perfect.  Jenny, thank you so much my friend, my dear sweet kindred sister. *sniff*   I wish the picture was better [my crummy camera and all].  It was dark when I took these, it's dark by dinnertime now, the picture doesn't do it any justice at all.

And now a picture of what I'm working on.

This is going to be a tutorial, I've already started taking pics of the process.  A fast, easy, doesn't have to be perfect tutorial.  I should have more time tomorrow to finish up, after the Y.  Just don't expect better pics - it's pouring rain, I know it will be dreary.  Oh, and dark early, sigh.  I'm also working on some hearts for Shirley.   She's collecting them for the families of the miners who lost their lives in New Zealand.    Every family will be getting quilts.  If you'd like to help, pop on over to her blog and scroll down to see the post. 

I'll be back soon with the tutorial - I think I'd better go try my mom's cell phone, and tell her to get home or else!

You definitely take after your sweet mama...but here I am worried cause Blossom is out and it's 10pm. I'm an early nighter, but she's just like you! :-)
Glad you like the gifties, sweet Allie. You're a beautiful friend whom I treasure as a gift from God.

Congratulations! Your gifts are lovely. I love what jenny does on her blog. Looking forward to your tutorial. It looks interesting. What a night owl you are. Where can you shop at that hour of the night? Not that I'd ever do that. I'm to bed by 10. LOL

Joy said...

Can't keep a good woman down :-)
Allie, I think you should have gone over to Australia and picked up your prize from Jenny. I love her blog. Looking forward to the tutorial.

Dolores said...

Great win from Jenny. We too have rain today. I do know where my mom is - she is early to bed and early to rise.
I will await your tutorial.

Cyndi said...

Oh, I think it's a hoot that your mom and her friend are out running around after dark. I remember my grandma and grandpa would always leave our house early because they wanted to get home "before dark"! LOL!

What a gorgeous, gorgeous calendar book! Oh you lucky lady, you! That is absolutely wonderful. And those scissors and fob are pretty darn cute, too!

Can't wait to see that tutorial....I love the fabrics and it looks like fun! :o)

XOXO,

Cyndi

Joanne Lendaro said...

WOW!! Great package! Glad that you won, I know you will treasure both gifts.

I'm a night owl too. Marcy (dd) and I used to go to Wal-Mart at 1 a.m. and then hit White Castle! So I completely get the late night thing!!

Have a wonderful day, my sweet Allie!!

Michelle said...

LOL! I don't like it when I can't reach my mother too!!!

What a beautiful win!

Steve's Mom was also a night owl (we are not) and when we took her to Las Vegas for her 80th birthday after a while we went to bed while she stayed up gambling with his sister - LOL

Congratulations on your prize. It is gorgeous, especially the journal. Your trees are really pretty - I look forward to seeing the project.
