All kind of updates.... :)

Here comes the sun... na na nanaaa... Here comes the sun, and I say, it's alright...
It's been a while... 
This is what it's looked like for the better part of 2 months... It's wonderful to get a glimmer of anything bright!
Here is a quick, little project that I started Monday night.  First off... I got a job.  Well, a part time job... well, ok I work 1 day a week, but it's at the local quilt store! :)   So last year at the local quilt store I picked up this little pattern by Birdbrain Designs and it sat in a drawer waiting.  Well, now I work there, so I thought I should stitch this up for the shop.  Monday was my first day.  I came home and while Corey and I watched a movie I stitched it... it's really an easy little stitch.  Now, I've cut it out and appliquéd it to a lovely piece of red cotton fabric by Kaffe.  Then added the straight stitch and french knots. I'm going to make it into a little heart shaped pillow with cream ric-rac along the seam to make a scallop... I think it will be cute!

Sneak peak of my secret Valentine gift... I figured out what to do with it and the hand made part is finished... but I'm not to send it until the 7th... so, I can't post a complete picture yet... I did take photos through the finishing process... so, you will see the whole thing, just not for a week... :)
OHHHH and Guess WHAT??? I WON!!!!  Donna from By the Bay NeedleArts had a drawing for a cute little kit that she made up...and her daughter drew me!!! YIPPPEEEEE !  Here's a link so you can oogle over my prize... LOL... just kidding... Also, Donna is the designer of the little stitchery that I have for my blog title picture... if you look to the left at the top there is a link to that FREEBIE.  I just loved it... of course it has sheep... and weeping willows and a beautiful manor house, and, and and ... lol.
So, you all seem to like Quaker Christmas you commented and wanted to know what threads I'm using.. so here they are: The threads are Gloriana Silk Luminescence: Black Cherry, Forest, Antique Gold and Midnight.
Well, have a wonderful day and stay warm!
