In the interest of copying being inspired by one of my heroes, Pam Kitty Morning, I thought I'd take a picture of my coffee this morning. Cute mug, no? From HomeGoods, of course. I have a pink one as well.
Speaking of Pam, did you see that she has a new fabric line that will be premiered next month at Quilt Market? Joy! Pam + Lakehouse is like a dream come true for my fabric tastes. I love her first line so I can't wait to get my hands on the new one too.
I ended up working on the February block of the Shabby Fabrics BOM right after January's. If you recall, I was contemplating moving right to March. But laziness won out, and since I had already printed off February's pattern, I went with that one.
This is not pressed and I see a little blue pen still, but you get the gist. Obviously embellishments will be added after quilting. March's block is coming along, then I'll move on to April. One of these days I'll get caught up!
I went to Christmas Tree Shops this morning, and guess what I got? Reading glasses! I've been noticing that I have to hold my embroidery right up close to my face, so I figured it was time. I have always wanted to wear glasses. My twin sister got prescription glasses when we were in 5th grade, and I've been jealous ever since. My husband and both kids wear them as well. I just think they're so cute and might make me look a bit smart. LOL Anyway, reading glasses are a step in the right direction. And they were only 5 bucks!
I  also got this cute little Americana throw for $12.99. It will be the perfect summery tablecloth for my kitchen table. The cats had to inspect it first thing.
Hol doesn't seem very excited about it. Either that or it's really cozy and she's ready for a nap.
Ok I've got a ton of housework to do so that's it for today. Talk to you later!
