Happy Valentines Day!

Happy Valentines Day to everyone! It's right around the corner! Whether you are weighed down with snow, rain or maybe a little sunshine is finally peeking through the clouds, I hope you all have a great day!!!

January and February have been busy months for me this year so far. There has been lots to do. My husband gave me a Nook for Christmas, and it arrived in February because the back orders were so huge! I've actually been enjoying READING and relaxing when I give myself the time. I'm must be improving because I never use to allow myself time for reading and playing around. It was always work, work, work!!! Don't you find it's easy to get caught up on the treadmill?
I know there are alot of reading devices out there now, but I love my new Nook, it's easy to hold reading in bed, and I can download a new book for a much lower price at any time of the day or night! I have a few to read all lined up, and some to my different series that are coming out soon
. If you've never tried one, and really enjoy reading, I highly recommend a reading device of your choice! I should be on their commercials! LOL!!

The rain has lifted today, and we have a beautiful mountain range covered with snow. I know most people to the north and the east have been really getting slammed with major snow, so my heart goes out to you all and especially in DC! We have really enjoyed the rain, more than I've seen since we moved here 6 years ago. They say it's an El Nino year, and we needed the rain so much!! Maybe it will make a small dent in our drought and low levels at Lake Mead. I hope.

I've continued to work on my cross stitch when I watch TV with my husband in the evenings, and it is coming right along! I have all kinds of designs I'm looking forward to working on!!
He's not finished yet, but I'll keep you posted!

What else have I been up to? Well, the real work these last few weeks has actually been designing quilts for new fabric lines that are coming out at Spring Market. These are just a few of the designs that have been approved so far, or possibly making it into magazines in the future. I have one quilt approved for Fabric Trends magazine in the summer issue of this year. It will be a line I'm not showing here yet by RJR fabrics. It is called Summer Solstice and you can actually see the line on their website. http://www.rjrfabrics.com/ . Look under fabrics.

This one will be in Fons and Porter magazine this year, not sure which issue yet, but it was approved. Sorry that I can't show you the whole design yet, but it is a cute crib size quilt.

I'm busy with Benartex and P&B Fabrics as usual, and here are a few that are already approved. I sure hope the fabrics start coming in soon!!!

There will be no such thing as time for myself or reading OR cross stitch once these fabrics begin to arrive on the trucks! LOL!
So until they do, I am really enjoying getting some longarm jobs done, and making a little time for the other things in life I love to do.
So until next time, Keep Quilting!

All of the quilts are gorgeous, but the pinwheel is my very favorite.
