Here’s my idea of the perfect Mother’s Day: Sleep as late as I want, and awake to beautiful weather. Get out of bed to find that fairies have come during the night and magically loaded all the dishes left in the sink into the dishwasher and put the pillows back on the sofa just the way I like them. Also discover that I have lost 10 pounds while asleep! Family is up, dressed and cheerful, ready to escort me to brunch at the nice restaurant they so smartly booked weeks ago. Come home, take the dog for a long walk, and then spend the rest of the day sewing to my heart’s content, with occasional interruptions from my husband and kids to tell me how much they adore me.
Um, yeah…. I do know that my family members have remembered this Sunday is Mother’s Day, so they get bonus points just for that. At any rate, we have a Mother’s Day treat for you!

Lots more coming your way: We’ll be doing a coloring book PDF for the new Summer Butterick collection, plus we’ll look at ’70s style—everything old is new again. Have a great Mother’s Day weekend!
