Friday with Exclamation!

Well, this is a day full of smiles and loud happy voices, mostly mine, but my kids are joining in.  Very happy Mommy's rub off on their kids Moods.

To start, SimpleSew popped in here last week and told me about her Blogaversary!  It was so much fun going around and reading all the different party posts and joining in the giveaways.  I even won one at Vickie's Blog.  THAT WAS A TREAT!!   I can't wait to host a giveaway myself and may have to start planning something special soon.

I made the sewing machine tote last week, and decided that it won't be able to hold my machine and all the notions needed for classes and quild meetings. That lead me to start this messenger bag today. Same fabrics, but not quilted.  It will be cute as a set. I even think I will make a little purse.
For FMQ Friday with Leah Day,  I have been working on my Express Your Love.  I am getting more comfy with Boomerangs.  It could always look better, but that will come with practice.

The last reasons why I am shouting with joy today:  My Janome 1600p arrives today !!!  Not only that, but my hubby has another table all ready to cut a hole in for it.  Yay! 

To top this off, my Valentines gift was perfect: A LOT of Isacord thread.

I hope everyone else has had a wonderful day as well!  Please share what has given you joy today!!



  1. Wow, that messenger bag is going to be amazing! So handy and the colours are great!!!

  2. Sounds like a good day all around!

    The quilting looks great. I love the red on the turquoise.

  3. That hubby of yours is a keeper. He certainly knows the way to a girl's heart!

    1. He sure is! His favorite saying is "Happy wife, Happy life" He always says it with a sarcastic smirk though, the turd. lol

  4. Awesome Valentine's gift! I like your boomerangs. I think they look really good and striking on the background. The messenger bag is lovely too!

  5. I bought the same machine for myself last year about this time. I absolutely love it. Sometimes I wish it had at least a zig-zag stitch, but as little as I need it, I can break out my old vintage machine that has MANY deco stitches. I really really do love my Janome 1600!! Congratulations!
