Winter Confusion

I think our seasons are confused... One day we have gorgoues weather, I'm talkin 54'.  We're playing outside like it's Spring and then the next morning we wake up to this
Freezing cold and  snow.  I don't understand.  Well I guess I'll be happy with the nice weather when we have it.  Don't get me wrong. I love the snow, but I wish the weather would make up it's mind.

Happy Valentines Day!

Make sure you do something for someone that you love today, and don't forget to do something fun for yourself.  I made red/pink pancakes for the kiddos this morning.  We are going to have our traditional Valentines Day dinner tonight.  You know, heart shaped and red/pink everything, with candles, the whole works.  Not to mention too much chocolate.....  So enjoy your day!
"Lots of Love"

Orange and Gray

Here's a sneak peek of a new quilt I'm getting ready to make.  Don't you just love the colors???  This will be a little different for me, kind of "out of the box" type thing.  But, once in awhile, you need to get out of your comfort zone and try something new.  Wish me luck and just keep sewing!!

Skinnies Shopping..

Just finished a quilt yesterday, which I just love and can't let you have a peek yet.   So I had to go out and buy more fabric.  I was out shopping for new Skinnies fabrics when I get a phone call from the school telling me one of my boys is hurt and bleeding.  This is a phone call we never want to get, Yikes!!   I was 30 mins away.  Luckily the shop I was at let me drop everything and run.  I made it to the school in 21 mins, no I didn't speed, mostly.  He's got an 1 1/2" gash on the top of his head.  So we are headed to the doctors for stitches/glue/tape.  Bummer, but my son is OK. (big sigh).  His biggest worry is that he won't be able to play basketball for a few days.
