I forgot to put a pen in the pocket, but you can see there’s a spot for one there on the spine edge. I only have a few of those doilies to use, I wish I could find more because this is such a pretty use.

I had a lot of fun pulling out favorite fabrics and turning them into buntings. Each is about 8-feet long, the individual flags are 10-inches high.

I’ve made about 15 different ones–that’s a lot of sewing! So I’ve re-opened my etsy shop with sewn things, because I can’t keep them all. Take a look.  🙂

Here are several paintings from January.

This beautiful girl passed away, and is a present for the owner. I hope she likes it.

This is a gift, too. I think I’ve painted only a handful of King Charles Spaniels.

This one I started out with gray/brown in mind, and then it went the other way. Completely, wildly, the other way.

And a sweet little guy. Those eyes just get you.

Can you believe it’s supposed to snow again? The last stuff never really went away. Worst winter ever. All the days feel like this.

So I’ve been pulling out my pretty fabric and sewing happy things.

I have a new philosophy about “saving” my favorite fabrics: Go ahead and use them up! Now that there’s this thing called the internet, it is way easy to find more favorites–no more being limited by what the local store has. Go ahead and turn those beautiful fabrics into something that makes you happy, because there will never be a better day to do it.

I went to Target and found this beautiful rolling pin. The body of it is ceramic. It was in the $1 section as you come in the door (it was really $5) and I’m sure as soon as Valentine’s is over you will never see it for sale again. Go quickly to find it!

Snow or no snow, stay positive! I’ve seen robins in the yard, and geese flying north, so it’s got to be just about over, right?
