As I told you in an earlier post, I am working on the monthly button up quilts, and aim to finish them this year. I got my February Button Up done in time to hang on February 1st! After changing out the letters a couple of times, I got the color to make them show up the way I wanted them to.
In the center panel where the word February is, I did a smaller stipple. I backed it with this fun Valentine print of boxed chocolates.
These are fun to do, and I am ready to dive right into March now. Also, I am taking a Twisted Heart class on Thursday at my local quilt shop. So I will have two going this month.
I have discovered the world of pod casts! I am so loving watching and listening to these while I knit or sew.
I haven't been doing too much cooking. A little here and there, but just every day things. Lots of breakfast for dinner lately. I did make this steel cut honey and maple oatmeal in the crockpot one night, and it was ready for breakfast the next morning. But what a mess is made in my crockpot. Doubt I would make it that way again.
And speaking of Roosters....Big Red, or Rudy Rooster, whichever it may be, he is out there with the girls, having his way with them, and talking the big talk! That's him over there on the right with his hackles up!
That's it for today. I have lots of errands to run, and things to do.
Oh, by the way....someone asked about how I fold and store the larger cuts of fabric in my sewing room. I think it may have been Noreen? Many of those pieces in the drawers are 1 to 4 yards. I fold them the same way, and they are just fatter. The baskets hold smaller cuts, like fat quarters and half yards. But all are folded the same way. I do have a few bolts with fabric, and those are just stacked up along a cabinet in my sewing room, left on their original bolts.
I thank all of you for coming by to say hello. A few of you who stopped to leave a massage, don't seem to have a blog that I can go visit and say hello back. But I do thank you for your visit! I hope you come back to see me soon!
Take care everyone!
