It is a gloomy, rainy, cold day outside, but in here it is warm and dry and pleasant!
I finished another quilt for the USO Lounge at our local airport. I bought this panel from Connecting Threads and looked at it for a long time. Finally I decided what to do.
The backing makes me happy - blue and red stars! Seems fitting.
And here it is cuddly and crinkly after washing and drying.
I also completed this table runner for a precious lady we love. I could not bear to cut up this pretty Valentine fabric, so just quilted it whole.
I've had to temporarily retire my little green Japanese machine until it decides to act right. Fortunately I had this one waiting for its turn to work.. Isn't it pretty! I love these old machines. They are such beautifully made creations.
This is a sweet little present I bought for myself. I bought it from maileg.com
I was so agreeably surprised at the quality and workmanship of this little mouse. And I love her matchbox bed, which is very sturdy.
Yes, I know I am far too old for toys. I do not care. I like things that make me happy, and things like this do!
I am working on a little Valentine's wall hanging now and hope to finish it soon. No pictures yet.
These pictures were taken on Monday when the sun was shining. As you can tell, we have had no major freeze yet this year. See the chickens there on the top? After this I let them into that garden they are gazing at so longingly. They pretty well demolished it, and that is okay. Bugs and worms had beat them to a lot of it and the chickens thoroughly enjoyed cleaning it all up for me!
On the top, second from left, is something I saw online. I cut holes I the bottoms of egg carton cups and put that on the top, which was solid. I put the root portion of a green onion in each egg cup and water in the bottom tray. As the article said, green onion sprouts are now growing! How neat is that!
I hope there are things in your world today that are making you happy! God is so good to us all, and I am thankful.
Hugs and kisses,
