I’m late, I’m late for an important date – well actually I made the real date, dinner with Grizz last night was fabulous, but I’m late wishing you all Happy Valentine’s. Hope you all had a great day yesterday, with any and all the loves in your life!
This little gem (a winning a while back) hangs outside our front door to remind the world that it is indeed Valentine’s season (just in case there are any wives out there who might let their husbands forget LOL):
For us Valentine’s was an in-and-out day. Our house is for sale, and somebody wanted to come and take a look. That meant putting away all the quilting stuff, so it at least looks like a person can find their way through the maze, then out for a bit to vacate the house – took the dog for a walk, which she loved and was good for all of us! – back home for a bite of lunch then out again for a vet appointment (just booster shots) and a few other errands around town, home again for a short while and out for dinner. We’d been given a wonderful gift card to a local restaurant (which we’d not yet visited), and had a most fabulous, relaxing meal. Bavarian Haus is the place to go if you’re hungry – we brought home more than half of our entrees!
For Drop and Give Me Twenty (see side bar), I’ve kept to the challenge and done something sewing(-related at least) every day.
Saturday Big Bertha, the quilting machine got set up again for the first time in almost a year. Right now, can’t show you the quilt that was loaded on Sunday, but every day a little bit more gets done on it.
The backing and batting have been prepared for the next quilt to load onto the machine:
And I’ve started work on one of these:
I am really excited about this one – so far, all the pieces are cut out and some of them have been fused to the interfacing.
And then I look around and see more and more and more that I’ve started and/or want to start! Just this morning, I found a pattern for a spring welcome banner that I’d like to hang outside soon. Sigh! 20 minutes for the rest of my life isn’t even going to touch all of this!
Happy challenges! Blessings, Peg
