The Edith Freebie!

Bagette April's mom is awesome. I have never met her, but I know this because April is awesome and the acorn doesn't fall far from the tree. Edith sends us fabric, knits super cute things for our sales, AND made me a couple of custom knitted items. She also sews a lot, I find a certain kinship in anyone who sews. And, most of all, she is responsible for putting April on this planet!

Oh, and did I mention, she sends us great fabric from her stash? Recently she sent us some really cute vintage pieces. So, I thought it was time to honor this great lady with a freebie from her stash. How about it? 11 cute, sturdy, funky bags up for grabs. That one in the front even has a pocket!

I won't write that my mother the best on light. After all it not so. For each person the mother - the kindest person, the most devoted friend and the biggest love in life. My mother presented to me life therefore it for me always remains the most loved and native one on light. My mother forgave me my mistakes all life and suffered when I badly conducted myself. I am happy that my mother is live - she was on February 3 62 years old and I want to give her the best gift. If not mother us wasn't therefore them it is necessary to love all-all of them the best.

My mom is the best! Despite the fact that I'm across the country at college she still "walks me" back to my room most nights when I leave the library (I call her as I walk back so I have someone to talk to and walk with). And when I'm sick at school, she sends me the same love (and tough love for not fully taking care of myself) as she does when I'm home. I haven't seen my mom since the second week of January and I can't wait to see her in less than 2 weeks. Love you more!

Thanks for the give away!

My Mom is a phenomenal parent and woman. She has taught me so much about family and about care taking. She loves my 92 paternal grandmother as her own mother, and takes care of her like no one else. I'm teary even writing about it. It's hard work but she does not turn away from the difficulty, she embraces it with such love and compassion. Thank you for asking this question. It has inspired some lovely thinking and wonderful memories.

We are six of us siblings and even in those times when the concept of Recycling was remotely known, she used to convert all our uniform skirts into pillow covers. Her old sarees were the bed covers. A fine designer, she designed all our dresses. Handing down dresses and recyling was thus weaved into the fabric of our family. She is simply awesome. <3 my Mom dearly!

Other than being a wonderful, loving and caring woman. She also was so talented. She made special cakes, drew the most amazing things and could sew anything you put in front. She inspired me so much. I wish I had more time with her to learn more. She had so much inspiration to give.
