Hello my friends! How are you? Mason's cold is slowly working its way to me. I don't know what it is, but whenever I'm getting a cold, I have a sore throat and I feel generally lousy for about 4-5 days before it turns into a full-fledged cold. Does that happen to anyone else? I wish I'd just get it already so I could get over it! Ugh. So anyway I'm in the sore-throat-feeling-icky stage. *sniffle*

Enough of that! I spent a lot of yesterday finishing up two projects...for the TAT quilt, I have all the butterflies quilted. Now I just have to label it and get it on the wall, somehow. Once I get it COMPLETELY completed I'll take some more pictures. So you'll be thoroughly tired of it, you know.

Madeline's rows are all sewn together, and the inner borders are on. I ended up just using a pink FQ for the inner border. Next step, outer border! Will this be done before Valentine's day? Your guess is as good as mine!

Here's some slightly alarming news...

Yes, my K-cup supply is running dangerously low. Never fear, I sped up my auto-shipment from amazon, Relief is on the way. I know you were worried!

Hey, for those of you who are good at these sort of things...a question if I may! I'm a room mother in Mason's first-grade class, and I'm in charge of favors for their Valentine's party next week. Any ideas of what to bring? Keep in mind we have a low budget and there are 23 kids. I'm trying to avoid candy. My mind is blank, help!! I'm not avoiding candy for ME though...maybe these will make me feel better..

OK, off to work on Maddy...and if you have any advice I'd love to hear it!
