A Day In Life With Cleo

If you were to follow Cleo around all day this is what you would see. She loves my bed best!
But she also enjoys the guest rooms cozy bed.

An afternoon snooze on the sofa is nice, especially when the sun streams through at just the right spot.

In between naps it's a trip to the kitchen to look out the window, beg for a treat, refuel on some food and water.

And then it's off to the next spot, well you get the picture! Cleo has so many nap zones she makes me laugh.
I was under the weather most of this past week. As you can see I played around with the painting program on my Mac which is a lot of fun.
I mailed my completed table runner off to Brenda for quilting and sewed the binding to my wall hanging so I have not been totally useless.
My next piece of inspirational fabric is calling my name and I'm off to play in my sewing room.
Have a happy week!

Happy Valentines Day!

Happy Valentines Day to you!

I just love Valentines Day! Pink and red, lots of glitter, a mail box full of love, maybe some flowers, most certainly some chocolate!!
My Valentine is on his way home from Vegas. Even though it was a conference trip, I'm thinking that overhead bin must contain a very large box of chocolate due to feelings of guilt LOL!
I'm off to the grocery store, Cleo and I are making a special dinner for Hubby and we better hop to it.
I hope your day is filled with sweets and fun surprises!

All work and no play

All work and no play... you have heard this phrase before I am sure. And it pretty much describes my life lately. But really, I'm okay with that because I enjoy what I do so very much!
Lots going on in my workshop. My quilt came home to Mama this week and I wish I could show you more LOL, but here is a glimpse of Brendas beautiful quilting. She used lime green thread in the borders which I never would have thought of, green to match somebodies eyes :) Sewing on the embellishments and binding on this one.

The Annie quilt is now in Brendas hands and I am working on a new table runner. Bright Kaffe Fassett fabrics, who doesn't love them, and a few co ordinating fabrics to add to the mix. This is turning in to a fun fun project!

I'm stitching design number 2 of 4 in a set of Holiday tea towels.

I have read more books this past month. Staying up way too late with books that have been hard to put down. I enjoyed "The Paris Wife" by Paula McLain and "Lucia Lucia" by Adriana Trigiani, a darn cute book. I finished books 1 and 2 of the "Hunger Games" trilogy by Suzanne Collins and starting #3. I have to say I never thought this series would appeal to me, just not my type of read. I kept hearing it talked about on Facebook by various readers and decided to just go for it and I have to admit these books are hard to step away from.

Valentines Day is coming up fast. I don't decorate for this cute little holiday. But I do pour all my love into fixing a lovely dinner and a pretty table and I enjoy making cute desserts. This year I found these pretty frilly pink baking cups and red Peeps dipped in chocolate... now who doesn't love Peeps! I see a dessert idea forming in my head :)

Happy almost weekend!
