Free pattern from Kaufman Fabrics:

On the Needles

I had a hankering (no pun intended) to knit a simple table runner out of this beautiful varigated green yarn for St. Patrick's Day. It is turning out so nice. Just a super simple TV watching pattern!

Already Thanking Me Lucky Charms

Getting in the St Patty's mood now that February is coming to a close.

Replaced my Vday garbage bag holder:

And changed my work journal too!


Also made thi for my next sewing journal

BUT: somebody ate it. Unfortunately I threw it away before I took a picture of it.

I believe this was the culprit:

So I am saying my mantra:

It's a flimsy

Secret Feb quilt-top done-awaiting quilting!




Simple Valentines

We decided to take it easy this Valentine's Day! We've both been putting alot of working hours in and felt like we needed some home alone time!

Sherwood cooked up a special Vday dinner!

Appetizers: mussels, clams, sourdough bread with Italian blood orange and pomegranate soda-yum!


Love my roses, too!

Chilean seabass and veggies for dinner:

Dessert: Chocolate covered strawberries:

Favorite line from a love song:

"I'm gonna find myself a girl

Who can show me laughter means.

And we'll fill in the missing colors,

In each other's paint-by-number dreams."

So Much Fun......Painting?

OMG, Randi and Sandy wanted all their buds to go paint! Like on a canvas! What????Me?? I can barely draw stick people!! Well, I was excited to be with my friends so out I went......and had a BLAST!!!

First of all, it was 5 minutes from my house (I never knew it). You can bring your own snacks, booze and other drinks and you get a private room in back for the pre-painting party and then the action starts in the painting room.

The 2 instructors,husband and wife could not have been nicer. Claude painted in front of the class the exact same picture as we did, so we followed him (with the tunes of the 70-80's on the stereo) and brushstroke bt brushstroke, we made our "Masterpieces". Any complaining----we brought clown noses for punishment/fun!!

We laughed and danced and painted the afternoon away----can't wait to do this again!



Busted for complaining.....had to wear the nose!




BTW---the hostess gets to choose the painting (from plenty).
Look in the background-theres beaches, sunsets, Eifel tower, NY city skyline, bridges, forests, flowers.......
