I hope you're all having a wonderfully romantic Valentine's Day! Or, if it's not one of the romantic variety, I do hope you're enjoying it, whatever you're doing!
It's wonderful to have a few days off work. I have several things planned to work on quilt-wise as well as things I want to do around the house. Last night I sewed up a spring/Easter pillow--spring has been in the air this past week, and I'm getting inspired. The center is one of those printed fabric pieces from Olde America Antiques I mentioned before.
I wanted to sleep in this morning, and my husband very thoughtfully shut the cats out of the bedroom when he left for work, but I woke up anyway at the time my alarm normally goes off. So, I got up, poured a cup of coffee, and had a little computer time before climbing back in bed with my cup of coffee and a good book. Before long, I got sleepy and took a little nap. Time off work is good!
This afternoon, I've been working on a spring quilting project. When I was in Bear Paws and Hollyhocks last week, I bought another pattern by Donna Yackey (of "Christmas List" fame! LOL!) called Spring is Here. I'm modifying it a little bit--but you probably figured I would!
Today I've been working on cutting and piecing the background for the hopping bunnies. I think this will be really cute! The colors in the photo aren't very true--the yellows aren't nearly that bright and what look like plain white squares are actually polka dotted with pink.
Shortly my honey will be home from work with my Valentine's request--a Starbuck's iced latte. Potatoes are in the oven baking, and soon HIS Valentine gift will go on the grill--steaks! (Which is a WHOLE lot better than having to wear one of those skimpy little nighties, I'm telling you! LOL!) And with that, it's time for me to go make a salad to go with the steak and baked potatoes. Happy Valentine's Day!
