The Day After

The day after Valentines and I have things to show you
My 16 year old daughter is an amazing cake decorater
and she made these cute sweet tart cupcakes for V day

oh and her joke on the forever single
I am happily Married

I started working on this pink quilt, first I made the blocks
12" but they were so big it looked like I was in a hurry
to get the job done so I shrunk them to 8" and they are much better
and remember I am still sewing on my kitchen table yuk
I cut the strips in lights and darkes

I am using the black in the irish chain to pull it all together

This demask from Adornit
I think this would look good in teals as well
just not enough time

and Third
the grand children in our lives, they are so special
and we love them more than they will ever know
Davey had Valentine pictures took with her mom and a few
of just her

look at those bare feet, they are so small and the smile.  The whole family can not believe she posed so well for the pictures, usually she is all over the place being silly

And then there is this little guy, no pink for him he is ready
 for St Patricks day

Mr Sugar surprised me with flowers, he really is a great guy, I told him no jewlery this year as our money is going to the flood in the basement, you know how it goes.  Since we are replaceing things any way lets do something more expencive that insurance won't pay for,ya like that

The painters are here tomorrow and say they will be done friday
carpet and hardwood comes  next week and with a little luck I can show you some finshed stuff in a couple weeks
if not I will shoot some photo's as we go along

Hope Your week is good

Busy Time

Boy here it is february
time flys when your busy
and right after Christmas there is so
much to do, all the christmas has to come down at the
shop and new samples have to be made
and put up

I have been working on so many things
I started and finished this

I made it as a table runner but it did'nt turn out to be
my favorite, so I added a
pocket so it can be a
couch caddie or bed caddie

or just us it as a table runner
It sure is a cute line of fabric
just not for a table runner in my house, red and carmel walls
but Davey's bedroom that work great

It's a New Semester

January in Canada brings a lot of things
usually cold (not much knock on wood)
a little more sunlight
and a new semester for my high schooler

For the last two year she has been using a hand me down
bag from her sister, that was from Old Navy
that fabric was cool
but we washed it after Christmas
and the handle fell right apart and the bag is not far behind
You can see the tiniest of holes starting in the bag body
so Monday night we took that old bag
layed it out for a pattern
cut out the fabric
sewed it back together and this is what she has
She really likes asian themed fabric
we found these in our travels
and she loves them
I put this project off for 30 days, saying I didn't have a
but in the end it took me less than an hour with no clue what I was doing and wa la, oh and it is reversable
she is happy

You know it was one of those things like sewing on a
button, you put it off for so long and then when you
get around to sewing it on, you say to yourself, that wasn't so bad
