I am sure that I am not alone when I say that I usually run out of steam after fixing supper, washing the dishes and doing whatever else has to be done for the next day. That usually means I am finally finished in the kitchen about 7:30. So, embroidery is something I can do while watching television. It is not that I want to watch television, but it is dark and cold outside! I just do not have too many other options! I am usually happy to be sitting around 8 o'clock, in the evening I just wish it was outside on my porch swing with an nice cold beverage.

Last but not least, our bedside tables are beginning to show their age. But, I still like them so I made two heart shaped scarfs for them. The room really looks good. I thought with the walls being a light green and using red fabric for added touches that it would take on a Christmas feel, but it didn't. I think using the dark brown fabric and having dark brown floors helped. The next project will be...

We both love clothes, she gets to wear pretty designer items and I usually wear jeans everyday. Another reason that I am looking forward to springtime, I love summer clothes and sandals!

My daughter turns 21 today! Yikes! I am making a pumpkin cake and as it bakes I thought I would make her a birthday card. Now, I have to pick up paper and flour from the counter! I am still not quite back into crafting. I am going through my house and getting rid of so many things that I just don't need. I have a few ideas on where to make myself a craft area so I don not use the kitchen counter. The problem with the counter is, that is big. So, big counter, big mess! I mean big mess! Hopefully, by the end of this week I will be able to show you my new space!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Valentine's Day! I am still in my, I can not believe it is still winter mood. There has been an improvement though, I only had to wash my floor once this week. The snow is almost gone! I have a few ideas for new projects, I hope to start them next week. Last week a few people asked me if I sell my, for lack of a better word creations. I know that I have said in the past that I want to start putting my creations on Etsy . But I think I might start posting a few things right here on my site and see how that goes. I am going to put my nose to the grindstone and get a few things done this week. I need a plan and I need to stick to it. Again, Happy Valentine's Day!

I spent Saturday afternoon making a few owl key chains. I made four in all but these are the two that I like best. They were inspired by an owl ornament that my daughter got for a Christmas present. I definitely want to make a few more. I am thinking maybe a few birds or heart shaped key chains would be cute too.

I bought the flower at Lowe's yesterday. It was so pretty I had to buy it! Red flowers are my favorite! How could I not believe that spring is coming when I see this plant everyday.

Again, it is snowing in Rhode Island and no matter how many lights I put on, these pictures are dark. I am still using the heart shaped playing cards I bought at the $1 store to make Valentine creations. This was the last project I wanted to make for Valentine's Day. I am glad I did, I really like it.

Just a little Valentine display. I made a few snowman painted pots for Christmas gifts last year. Thanks again, to Cathy at Cobblestone Farms for sharing the idea with us. My father really liked his, was it the pot or the homemade candy that I put inside? It was the pot, he said so. I painted two more to fill with Valentine treats, one for my parents and one for my niece's family.
