What I’m loving on Monday

This bobbin winder.  I bought it for my Mom for her birthday, but I had to try it out first.  Ya know, just to make sure it works. He He.  Its officially on my Christmas list. IMG_1462 Leftover pumpkin caramel swirl cheesecake.  Recipe found here…. but be warned, you’ll eat it all and you’re pants won’t fit the next day. I know from experience.

    Ah, morning naps, what would I do without YOU? 11-1 baby, 11-1. It's me time. Sewing time.

    Haha I'd have wanted to 'test' it too. That cheesecake looks very dangerous… very glad I don't fancy caramel!

    He's so adorable. I love the sidewinder. My machine was so difficult to wind bobbins. This thing is perfect in my option.

    I have wondered about those bobbin winders. I didn't want to spend the money to buy one and find it didn't work well.

    Oh, I love the squishy-cheeked binky-in-mouth sleeping toddler photo. So sweet.

    I have had pumpkin cheesecake and it was one of the greatest dessert experiences of my entire existence. And now there's a recipe for it with CARAMEL???? Oh sweet mother of mercy, I am in trouble.

    Amen to the afternoon naps!

    A friend bought me a sidewinder and I loved it but it quit working shortly after I got it. Save your receipt just in case.

    So sweet! Love the "dream" pic. Those were the days around here…

    I have the exact same bobbin winder! And I love it! I use it to wind the bobbins for my mid-arm quilting machine since they won't wind on my Husqvarna Viking sewing machine.

    There is just something so peaceful about a baby sleeping. My 4 year old baby boy has stopped having his afternoon naps now as otherwise he would still be awake at 10pm. I did enjoy that reprieve in the afternoon.

    …love, love, love my bobbin winder…….your boy is beautiful!

  21. Libby November 17, 2009 at 10:47 am #

    So, so sweet!!

    Cute picture of your napping guy!

    Those bobbin winders look great. I don't know why it is so irritating to wind a bobbin in the middle of a project. Really, it only takes a minute or two. I am an impatient person, I guess! :)

    I had to hold a cushion between myself and the PC screen as I could feel the calories being emitted from the cheesecake. Just one bite and I would die happy :D

    What an incredibly cute, sweet picture of your boy with his lovely rosy cheeks.

  25. SewAmy November 17, 2009 at 9:14 pm #

    what a sweet napping photo.

    My Mom got me a "side winder" last year for Christmas. LOve it! Something I would never think to buy myself, but it is so handy!! And what a cute napper you have. I have 2 of those in my house as I type…I love this time of day!

  27. Cheryl Arkison November 17, 2009 at 10:13 pm #

    Love that picture of your sleeping babe. Just love it.
    I could use an afternoon nap myself
    PS How do you get him to sleep in the light like that? I often want to open the blinds just so I can take a picture like that but my 3 year old refuses to have too much light for sleeping.

    Ooh, a bobbin winder is on my Christmas wishlist. Where did you find yours?

  29. Rannyjean November 19, 2009 at 3:07 pm #

    Have the bobbin winder and would be lost without mine. Then again, I also have a lighted needle threader!

    Love this! It is what my little boys are doing right now!
