The weeks are flying by. I have several projects going.... monthly mini... a sashiko project I'm slowly working on.... contemplating starting Barbara Brackman's BOM Yankee Notions..... and most urgently trying to finally once and for all finish quilting David's log cabin! My goal was Valentine's Day which won't happen, but I'm getting close.
Big (very big) stitch with doubled sashiko thread - knots exposed -
This is my TV watching spot. I load up 4 needles at a time, and try to complete one section each night!
AND I've got these yummy modern stars from Barb's swap to ponder over!
Trying to keep organized in my "studio" space in the living room. I bought a few more bins at MUJI, making these towers even taller. David is joking that by the time we leave Japan they will be sky high!
And last but definitely not least..... I am going to be a GRANDMA in June!! Woo hoo! First grand child.... and she's a GIRL!
For the baby, Kaela (who has loved pink since she was a little girl) wants a very light mostly white and pink quilt and she has a "flowers" theme going in the nursery.
And, Valentine's Day tomorrow xoxo. David and I first "met" (over the phone) thirty years ago this Valentine's Day. We got to know each other and I dare say fell in love, over several months of phone conversations, before we'd even met in person. We wrote actual letters, sent tapes, and worried about running up our long distance phone bills. What a different time!
How about these little individually packaged perfect strawberries - around $3.60 each? I'd rather have dark chocolate;).
