Anyway, I am longing for warmer, sunnier days with warmth. LOL That is why I changed my cover picture to reflect this. As posted in an earlier post, my son made this stone fairy house for me for Mother's Day last year. I don't know how he is going to top this for Mother's Day this year. Unless this will be my "every year" Mother's Day gift. LOL I did tell him, that if we move, guess who is picking this 100 lb. plus thing up and moving it?
So, being cold, I guess it has been a pretty perfect time to stay in and do some crafting. I have been working on my pin cushion swap, that our SQTG is holding. I don't know how are hostess did it, but my swap partner, Ruby, is a perfect swap partner and we have a lot of the same crafting interests in common.
I have had so much fun doing this swap. I have never made a pin cushion before, but, I am already making a list of pin cushions I want to make for family and friends. I think this could become addictive. I thought pin cushions were the old tomato/strawberry kind I had as a young child learning to sew. (After cleaning my craft room recently, I actually found my first one I ever had. Now I am proudly displaying it.) Somewhere down the line, I will put a picture up of my swap pincushion after February 25th or sooner if my swap partner and I finish earlier.
But, I have included some pictures of the sewing that I did this week. My daughter's husband just recently had her grandmother's table refinished, and I have made a table runner for it. Also, I made another table runner for my second daughter, Jennifer, as a surprise too. My oldest daughter (Sarah), well, she made her Valentine's table runner last year, and she was so nice to have pre-cut the fabric for a quick table runner for me. I had her permission to use the pre-cut fabric to make it for her sister, Monica. How easy was that? But I will take the credit for making it. LOL I can't say which one belongs to her, cause she reads sometimes reads my blog:-)
I think it is like -20 degrees here with the wind chill, but I am off to go to the fabric store. Nothing can keep us quilters from our task, right?
I just talked with my daughter, Sarah, and asked her if she would want to make some lasagna for her and me for tonight's dinner. I have been hungry for this for a few weeks, and my husband doesn't really care for it, but my son would eat it too. It's more fun cooking with someone, especially, if I don't have to cook, as I am a spoiled princess cause my husband does like 100% of the cooking around here. I do the baking , though!!!
Anyway, lucked out again:-) She had made lasagna on Sunday, and she has some leftovers for me & her brother!
Put my sign on my craft room door.............going shopping...........see ya later!!!!
