Superbowls & Screaming Goats February 2, 2015 11:06

The great thing about not liking either team in the Superbowl is that whoever loses, I'm not heartbroken. When Peyton and the Denver Broncos lost in the playoffs this year, I was so heartbroken I almost swore off football. This is from a person who was photographed as a baby in 1972 watching football with her dad. Katy Perry's performance motivated me to watch this Superbowl, plus any opportunity to see Brady throw a fit (always amusing). Screaming goats in commercials make me laugh, too! At my parent's house, enjoying the seven-layer dip, I occasionally watched the game, but mostly focused on finishing a butterfly cross stitch in my new pattern the Mardi Gras Butterfly Collection. I'll be releasing that new set, plus two others in a next week or so. Stay tuned...

Valentine's Approaches January 6, 2015 11:28

Time for thinking about your special someone for Valentine's Day.  If you have no special someone, give love to yourself this season.  Chocolate & flowers go nicely with a new sewing project.  Quilters stitch away with the fun patterns featured this and next month: Heart Basket, Charmed Valentine, Black Cockatoo (with bleeding hearts), and for Easter the Flop-Eared Bunny.  

Have a Sweet Day this Valentine's!
