A woman’s prerogative

That’s right.  I changed my mind.  It bugged me that the teacher’s gifts weren’t a matching set.  Please don’t use logic and reason with me about them not needing to match.  I felt an intense and irrational need for the gifts to match.  I just did. 

So I am keeping a necklace and I gave the other necklace to Jack’s nanny.  I think she was tickled. 

AND…  I made two more wine bags and will give up some more of my precious stash of Stave 28 Riverstone.  In my fabric stash, I had another colorway of the Amy Butler fabric I had used for the first wine bag.  And I used some scraps I had left over from the Xmas tote bag-apolooza for the third bag.  I think they look pretty sweet together!



I can rest easy now that my gifts are thematic and matching.  I hope the teachers aren’t on the wagon!  Wait, maybe if they are, they can give my wine back and keep the bags.  😉 

Next up: a dress for me and some birthday dresses for two little girls who live in Madison, my nieces, Haley and Chloe.  I’m going to use the coordinating batik fabrics I bought from Vogue when I was in Chicago for PR Weekend.  They are going to be so stinkin’ cute, I can’t stand it!

Happy sewing everyone!

    I enjoy your site (am a regular lurker). At my son’s schools in PA the campuses are “drug and alcohol free” (no drugs, tobacco, alcohol) – and that also applied to adults working/visiting there. Please check – I’ve known of parents who were fined! Maybe you could try a nice sparking water – LOL…
    great gift ideas. bev

      I checked with my son’s school and asked some other neighborhood moms and it looks like the wine is a go. Thanks for the heads up though. I would have never have thought of that!
