In my stash I had a panel from this older collection from

Home is in the Kitchen by Clothworks

I am thinking I may use some of this panel in my blog hop project.

I have lots of ideas for this one and one design in process.

Today while I was fondling these pretty fabrics another idea popped in my head.

I shall have to see what I shall sew.

On the homefront, my ceiling has dried a little
but that could just be because everything on the roof is frozen again
as we are having bitterly cold weather.

The forecast for the weekend is not too good ...

snow changing to freezing rain changing to heavy rain and then plunging below zero again.

On Tuesday I will be having laser eye surgery again.

After this I will be taking a rest and recovery break from blogging for a few days.

A Fabric Filled Valentine!

Isn't this sweet?

Candy for the eye on a cold, gray winter day.

This pretty fabric filled valentine arrived as a surprise from my friend

Thank you, Jeanie!

This has really brightened my day ... :)

Looks gloomy, eh?

That is where my sewing machine has been sitting to catch the eastern sun.

It is a bay wall and we have ice dams on the roof.

The ice has edged under the eaves and is ...
drip ... drip ... dripping 
... into my dining room.

I have moved my sewing machine to  dining table / cutting table for now.
A better solution will hopefully be found soon.

Hopefully spring is coming soon.

Katniss and I say thanks for small blessings.
