Only a little sewing.........

Yesterday was time to wash fabric and cut more pillowcases for the church sewing circle which meets today.  I stole enough time to sew this little piece together.  I showed the strips a couple weeks ago and there is enough to make 2 placemats.
The snow is melting!  It got up to the mid 40's yesterday.  Now we need a whole week like that.

Happy Valentine's day!!

Love the colors in this one! Bright and cheerful is definitely what we need around here, plus a winter thaw. So glad you got a little thaw yesterday. They say that it is supposed to get warmer here too! Looking forward to it!

perfect Valentine Day colors. Our snow is about all melted, I think it will be gone by the end of today except maybe what is in the deepest of the shade.

That will be one super=pretty placemat! And isn't it wonderful to get back to more bearable temperatures! We got all the way up to 75 today and I'm loving it.

It would be really cheery to eat off of that. It has been in the 70s the last two days: great to sit on the deck and read. I love this weather.

Wash fabrics, Wanda ?????
When did you begin with that ?
and why ?
I`m asking because I always wash everything, and I think I remeber that you once said that you don`t wash your fabrics.

By the way, when I`m leaving a comment: I just love,love, love your work !!!
