I can dream about spring and I can buy some pretty potted primroses and put them in a pretty metal planter but in real life there is still close to two feet of snow on the ground surrounding our home. I went into the city today to visit my oldest daughter at her new home. She recently moved in with a new room mate and I had not been able to visit until today. We went out and did a little fabric shopping and stopped at the greenhouse/market where I use to work in the office. That is where I bought these pretty flowers to cheer up my kitchen.
This past Friday and Saturday I spent some time quilt shop hopping. Friday evening I picked up this pink and brown fabric.
Yesterday I got busy and stitched up this knitting needle roll for my oldest daughter.
I went on Saturday's shopping trip with three of my friends. I'm a putz there are no pictures of us shopping to be had. I am always so happy to be spending time with these ladies that I never think to take any pictures. I did not buy much fabric on this trip. I did find a pretty blue fabric to use as the sky for this pattern.
I also bought this new pattern. The quilt shop had it all stitched up and hanging on the wall and it was really pretty.
The only other thing I finished this past week is the two blocks that I cut for hubs throw that I am working on. It is the first time I have sewn flannel and I made a real mess of one of the blocks and had to re-cut some of the pieces. They are not perfect but I am happy with them.
I'm off to crochet on my grandson's afghan. It is really close to done. Blessings!
I am a mother of 3 daughters and grandmother of 8, 6 boys and 2 girls. I love to sew, paint, garden and enjoy many different crafts. Ladybug is actually my Scottie's name and she gives my hubs and I many hours of pleasure. I dream up many ideas of which a few I manage to make happen. My husband is very talented and has a few hobbies of his own so he puts up with my many hobbies and the mess they leave behind. I cannot say this blog is about anything in particular except our love of home, family and friends with a few interesting things sprinkled in here and there.
