LUCKY GIRL!!

I was so fortunate to win these "Natural High Zip it bags" from Sew Cindy. She is always having a one day giveway....sometimes I make it and sometimes I am a day late....but that is okay....I enjoy her blog and don't go there for her giveaways.

don't you just love these bags? Thanks Cindy!!

My husband says I should put a bag over my head with this bad hair cut (I would cry but he is only funning me.....and well....telling the truth too). I will say one thing, every morning I get up and put make up on....figure that is the one improvement I can make and have control over. My husband hasn't noticed either......hummmmm maybe the bad haircut is just too much?




Then I got the most awesome surprise in the mail......My friend Krista from Amerika Samoa....she sent me these lovelies.....


I just couldn't believe it......I was doing the Samoan Happy Dance for sure....


I am still in happy land over these awesome fabrics....

Another reason I am in happy land is because (if you are on facebook, you are sick of hearing this...so sorry) but tomorrow is the day that my 5th son comes home from a 2 year mission for our church. I am soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo excited. I can't wait to get these arms around that young man. Will I be able to sleep tonight? Hummmm if not, I will just sew my hours away.

Repeat after me..."It will grow. It's not the first bad haircut I've had, and it won't be the last. It is growing as I speak. Someone out there probably thinks it looks good. It will grow." Love the Samoan treats. You've got great friends. Get some sleep tonight, lady!

Tell David he should come visit us!!!
I am sure your hair is not that bad! I bet you look great!

hetty said...

Nice win and beautiful Samoan fabric! Gotta love that stuff! The hair, well, what can I say? It will grow with time. I got the same cut a couple of weeks ago. You won't get any sewing done tonight because you will be doing the happy dance all night long! At least that's what I'd be doing if my son was coming home.

Susan In Texas said...

Gorgeous fabrics, Barb. And Barb, did you notice? Flo, who won the second prize on my blog giveaway, also won a set of your buttons. I don't know about you, but I had 659 chances in my giveaway. She is seriously lucky!

Enjoy your boy's homecoming!

What gorgeous fabrics! You have wonderful friends.

Karen said...

Are the fabrics from Samoa the type that you buy a length and it is stitched around the edges? Sort of like something you would make a sari from.
