Funny Valentine

Well it's better late than never....Here was Emma's cute little Valentine's bag we made for her to take to school on Monday to carry all of her Valentine goodies. I actually wove several different strips of pink & red fabric and then just glued it to the sack. Easy peesy! She was very happy and said that she got alot of compliments on it.

Cute pic of me and my two sweeties! Malek actually has his eyes somewhat open and is smiling! Emma's smile is a little more evil - she can be so dramatic at times.

So I'm super excited that I will be meeting a couple of fellow bloggers - turned friends next Saturday for some quilt shop hoppin' and good food eating !! Love & Ruth - Can't wait to meet you guys!

Now....back to my doll quilt swap project....decisions decisions.

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend. It's supposed to be in the 70's here in Texas!! Yeah!!

Doll Quilt Swap

Hello Everyone! I've signed up for my first doll quilt swap that Christine over at Once Upon a Quilt is hosting (thanks Christine!). My swap partner is Sarah from Be Forever Grateful and so far, she is spot on with her color choices for my little doll quilt! I love bright colors! I hope to narrow down my selection for Sarah's little quilt soon too. Ok Sarah - here are a few that I had in mind.....anything strike your fancy???

So I'm sure some of you saw the crazy ice & snow storm that we were hit with here in Texas last week.
(looking from my driveway down the street)
(yes - that's my child laying face down in the snow refusing to come in)
4 days - count them FOUR days of no school or work! That has never happened before. Nice little vacay! While I was recovering from a bad sinus infection and broncitis, I found time to do some hand quilting on a top that I started quilting about 4 years ago. Really couldn't do anything else since we were socked in and I had no voice! I'm almost done with the hexie blocks and will then start the quilting on the borders. Maybe I'll finish this one soon!

We are expecting more bad weather tonight so maybe I'll get to work on it again tomorrow. Till then...... Jenn
