Lovey Dovey

January has been a busy month, putting Christmas away keeping up with orders. Daisy and I have been nested in my sewing room, all cozy and warm, sewing up a storm. We have a new Valentine pattern ready for you.... "Lovey Dovey" awwwww. This runner is fast and fun to make, you can finish it in a weekend! Log cabin blocks with a scrappy look use a sew and trim method of construction. The center square uses a fussy cut motif of your choice, I of course chose what else but a Daisy kitten look a like! You can find it on my website here at: if you wish.

Last weekend, while I was in my office deep in thought working away on the pattern, still in my jammies I hate to say, there was a racket at my front door! Door bell ringing and someone pounding on the door. I thought geeze... so I went to see who was making all that noise and who stood there but my friend Martha from Oklahoma.. SUPRISE she says.. I have candy for you :) LOL
Of course Hubby knew the plan, those two sure know how to keep a secret is all I can say! But what a fun surprise it was! And so I hopped into fast gear, fluffed up, and after a little catching up we headed into Kansas City for a little tour. We had a cocktail in the beautiful Union Train Station before heading to a favorite restaurant Cafe Trio for dinner.

Sunday we had brunch at Cafe Europa, love that place! Afterwards we stopped by a wonderful shop called Stuff where we had so much fun making necklaces with charms by Kansas designer Amy Labbe. This is just a sampling of the selection!

Difficult decisions but I finally picked a few :)

We had a really fun visit and it flew by way to fast. Martha has a unique hobby I think, she has been studying and practicing glass blowing. She brought me this beautiful paperweight she made for my desk. Awww Cleo, I see you there :)

And so I'm back to my normal predictable routine this week, the break from it was fun and nice. Slowly writing another pattern and stitching up some very cute little bunnies for another! 
Wishing you a happy week!
