Thanks alot, Phil

Six more weeks of winter.  Big surprise.
It has been looking like THIS around here ALL WEEK:
But today it looks like this:
And I can totally deal with the snow when it's sunny, too!  I'm actually looking forward to a bit of snow shoveling later!
I'm also looking forward to the Superbowl food party game!
Look what came in the mail for me yesterday -- a gift from Kelli!  It's a tote bag with a sweet bird theme! It made my day!
All my creating in the last couple of weeks has been hearts -- these are the "first drafts" as I was brainstorming squares for Valentine's Day.
Sweet, no?
Still -- I ended up going in an entirely different (read: PINK) direction with my project.
Yesterday as it was snowing and blowing all day, I sat down and crafted some hearts from vintage fabrics.
This one is my favorite, with a red toile maiden holding a big bouquet.  I think I'm going to stitch around her with white thread.  And maybe cover the heart's curves with mother-of-pearl buttons.  I could do this all day.
Also on the agenda: finishing my yogurt cup creation!  Stay tuned for the reveal in six days!

Hi Laurie, thanks for your visit. I have not been keeping up with my blogging as I should. I always love your work, but must admit I don't envy your snowy days one bit. Have a great winter. always Michele
