Hearts are Always in Season....


Chelsey was practical this holiday.  She asked for a vacuum, pots and pans, and corningware. I still wanted her to have the special stuff "just because" that's what Moms do.  This is a pattern from Stina and I turned it to a Candle Cozy for her patchwork apartment up North.

The kids are all tucked back in their Homes away from Home and I went back to work today.  It was quiet-- an easy way to get back focused on work.

We've been snowshoeing--- pictures to follow soon.

Football is about to come on so I better go down into the sewing room for a bit.  Just trying to cram a 36 hour day into 24---

Gratitudes:
My Kids' safe travel
A new Quilt Book for Christmas
Brand New Gloves

Good Morning, Melanie,
I enjoyed visiting your blog. Yes, I agree that it's just the best when both college girls are home...and such a relief when they are safe and sound back in their own homes.

Have a terrific Tuesday ~Natalie
