First and foremost I’d like to wish you a very happy LOVE DAY!!! If you don’t have a special sweetheart today, God loves you with an unimaginable amount of love, send Him a Valentine! =)
I’ve gotten some fun mail the last couple of days. Yesterday in my mailbox I found my sweet toweling yardage I bought from The Fabric Depot. It’s on sale if you want some too.
It’s more fun to do dishes with pretty towels isn’t it? I think I’ll make some table runners for my retro kitchen too!
I also got my scrap bag from Homestead Hearth I kept seeing on blogs. I must say when I first opened it I was a bit disappointed, but I went through it again today and thought there was quite a bit I could use.
That’s the fun of a grab bag isn’t it? You just don’t know what your going to get!
I’ve been busy working on my red and white quilt. I got the half dresdens done and the flying geese border on.
I think I only have room for one more border because of where I plan to hang it. I’ll have to stew on it awhile. Since my Mom hasn’t been here to sew, I started doing her’s for her so she doesn’t fall to far behind. I’m a good kid, huh? LOL
I’ve got her half dresdens pinned on and ready to applique today.
I started working a little Blackbird Designs freebie last night. It’s called Know I Know My ABC’s . I like to keep something to stitch by the couch at night while I’m sitting with The BG whatching TV. The colors they chose are so interesting!
Who is itching to get in the garden this spring? This will be my first spring here in the house with my very own, get-to-keep-forever, garden! So you know I am excited!! We spent the tail end of last summer and fall clearing and clearing and weeding and weeding. Now we have a fairly blank canvas to plant what we please.
It has been my intention to start a garden journal in which to keep pictures of where we started, plans and reminders. I don’t want to forget plant sunflower seeds!!
So I whipped up this cover yesterday (tutorial here from Bloom blog) and jotted some initial notes.
I used some of The Simple Life fabric, which is quite garden-y don’t ya think? I added a little pocket for my favorite pink pen. Too bad journals don’t have spell check, flowers are kind of hard to spell! (giggle)
What do you always mean to plant in your garden, but forget to do it?
Have a great day!!
