I'm Off To Iowa
Not for Arnhild's camp as originally planned. But to a shower for Baby Boy A's fiance. I toyed with several options for a shower gift. This probably isn't the most ever needed item, but from a mother who knits and sewed quite a bit before I became a full radical knitter, I think every house should have a sewing machine.
Also, I am giving her a sack of common thread colors, scissors, measuring tape, hand sewing needles etc.
It's not the most common shower present, but it saves hunting someone up to hem some pants when mom isn't going to be in the same city or even state.
