Valentines Day

I wanted to show a few of the fun Valentine's treats I found. Below are chocolate heart pretzels.

The theme for our Valentine dinner was Italian. We had lasagne and a few favorite treats.

Yummy cupcakes were a hit!

A preview of our Valentine table before it becomes a feeding frenzy for all invited to dinner.
The pens are for the cards that are passed around at the table. We each write what we love about those at the dinner table. Even those guests who are invited get a special card with thoughts and feelings of love from all of us. It's fun to pull out those cards and read them during the year to remind you how much you are appreciated and loved.
The hearts had a little gift inside and the fabric hearts are to hang somewhere to see and remember that someone loves you. I feel like we need those constant reminders in this crazy, hurried world we live in.

Tim Tams are a favorite this year because a sweet friend told me where I could buy some. They are Australian. I didn't know you could buy them here.
It's almost time to dig in and eat. We need to light the candles.
Here's a look at pink pancakes and strawberries for Valentine's morning. Don't forget the whipped cream.
Of course, my favorite boy loves eggs on his pancakes. I think it's disgusting but he sure loves them.
Tierani and Tahmor eating tim tams at work celebrating a friends good fortune.
Look how cute this Valentine basket is that she brought filled with tim tam's and hot chocolate. As you can see you have to bite either side of the tim tam and then slurp the hot chocolate through until the whole cookie begins to melt. Let's just say it's not for the faint of heart.
A quick look at a few things I've been working on. Rainy Days and Mondays.

I hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day. It's a busy week and I can't wait to share my night from the American Quilting Retreat this week.

This is the million dollar quilt. Each block represents the story behind a letter from her son who served a 2 year mission. Don't you think that is such a great idea. I love it.






I love all the hand embroidery on this quilt. It will be a classic.

Farm Girl Vintage "Woolly Sheep"

Woolly Sheep is the last block on the  Farm Girl Vintage Friday Blog Hop Sew-Along.

It has been sew much fun sewing along  with Lori Holt, Fat Quarter Shop and all of you every Friday. 


I have a pile of super cute Farm Girl Blocks that I can't wait to start piecing together to make a fabulous quilt. 


I wanted my sheep to be white so I used low volume fabrics...I'm going to add some embroidery around the edge of the sheep to help the outline pop.

My Woolly Sheep and I  took a little field trip to Birdseye, Utah.  My sister-in-law and her husband  live on a ranch... It was the perfect spot for some  Farm Girl Vintage photos.

 Don't you love this old farm truck!

The setting was a beautiful, peaceful, tranquil day.

We were able to take these photos with the perfect backdrop for Woolly Sheep.

It also features complete instructions for 100 letters, numbers, punctuation and picture blocks in 6" and 12" block size, plus 18 quilt projects!

I have a fun project planned with the blocks I will be making.  Right now I have my binding by Vintage Door wrapped around my Binding Baby which is made by Shari for Doohikey Designs.

You can see how adorable my Binding Baby is and how she keeps my binding from unraveling while waiting to be used.
