Good Finds at Jo-Ann's

Jo-Ann's was having a President's Day sale and I picked up these fun items! I absolutely love the Dual Duty XP thread so I had to add a few more colors to my collection. I finally remembered to snip a small amount of thread from each spool I had and brought them along so I wouldn't accidentaly buy any repeats!
The beautiful bright lemon fabric is from Alexander Henry. The first time I saw Alexander Henry fabric at Jo-Ann's I about flipped. Unfortunately I never got enough of this lemon fabric and they didn't have it for a really long time. I would always check "just in case", but was always disappointed...until this time! I just got 3 yards, but I think it will be plenty for a while. The best thing? It was on sale from its regular price of $8.99/yd. for 30% off, and I had a 10% off my entire regular and sale priced purchase! Yipee!
Hope you're having a great day!

Kiss a lot of Frogs

MYTH #1: You have to kiss a lot of FROGS to find your prince.

This card is available for sale here and would be perfect for Valentine's Day or to be used as an anniversary card!

Just thought I'd drop in really fast, so there you have it ;).

Snow days, Baking and Gifts Given and Received

Whew! A lot has been going on since I last posted. Let's get things started!
First off, we are finally getting some snow in our part of Virginia! Yipee!! I love snow and am so happy to see a white landscape once again.
From a week ago or so:

Currently/before it started melting:

As for baking, I made pretzels on the "week ago or so" snow/ice day:

Four ladies in our church are having (or have recently had!) babies, so I was sewing up a storm making baby gifts (fun!).

This little apron (a smaller version of this apron - and with different fabrics) is for the big sister of one of the babies-to-be.

A gift received from my mother who just got back from a little trip with her mother and sister:

Isn't it pretty?

Whew! I told you there was a lot! I think I will have to post some more to cover the other things I've been doing...

More coming soon! :)
