yesterday

We had a low key Valentines day where we barely left the house, put the kids to bed at 7, ordered in Chinese food, and watched movies and funny TV.  I even got to sew…and stare at these lovelies from Jay next to my machine:

Ben got a load of Valentines and candy that he downed within an hour…but since it was SUCH a nice day he spent the whole after noon playing outside with friends and eluded my camera.  Fresh air and sunshine was just what he needed.

And I snuggled with Ryan….and cleaned up after him…as he is now a semi-walking tornado of destruction.

Hope you had a nice one too!

PS.  I feel like a big jerk….I told you that I would have a tutorial up for this quilt….but I took some advice from a new friend who knows what she’s doing…and I’m not posting the tutorial here.  It will be available…not sure when…but I’ll let you know.  I’m so sorry…I really feel like a jerk.  But please if you have any specific questions about it or sizing...don’t hesitate to email me (cluckclucksew@gmail.com)  So Sorry!  

P.S.S.   Just ignore the fact that I just used 38 …’s (dot dot dot’s) in this post….yikes. :)

I'm definitely addicted to the "..." myself, so I can sympathize. :)

It sounds as if you had the perfect day yesterday.... and your little one is a cutie pie!

Cute photo! I hope your friend told you that you deserve to be compensated for your time and talent. I hope when we see that pattern, it has a bit of a price tag attached... you're worth it!

Ha ha . . . my son is a little tornado as well! His favorite thing is to empty all our drawers and cabinets. Wish he would put the stuff back in them, though!

Elena said...

Love that block on your machine! Great way to use those elephants in a bright way.

The photo is so sweet; he looks happy about it all. Your quilts are very pretty; I especially like the orange quilt and the basket case quilt. Your choices for linings are nice.

You look so beautiful in the picture with Ryan. It is so nice to see what people look like in real life. Your Valentine's Day sounds perfect to me.

Kirsten said...

What a beautiful little boy! I'm 38 myself and I actually think the ...'s are attatched! lol
And you are no "jerk". Work is work... value it! Lol!

So cute! As an ellipses addict myself, your "...'s" are forgiven. ;)

You are just too cute! I can't wait to see what you are sewing up! I am sure it will be amazing!

Tracy said...

I love your blog but I have a request... Can you add pictures to your RSS feed? I don't even know if you have the powers to do that but I would appreciate it! I like to read blogs from my reader. :)

What a cute picture!

Donna Boucher said...

Yay! I am so happy to see the darling girl(and her baby) behind these colorful, beautiful quilts!

ali said...

Lovely pics! And thanks for the inspiring cards you posted on Sunday - gorgeous! Please could you tell me, is that lovely elephant fabric quilting weight? I love the print but can only find it in a heavier weight here in the UK and I don't know whether it would be OK for quilts?

TiLT said...

Sounds like a great Vday to me :) And he has got to be the cutest tornado I have seen.
And no worries about the tute...that one screams "pattern" more than tute to me :)

Wonder what this says about us dot, dot, dot, " ... " and have now taken to adding spaces between them. Surely there is some deep meaning - like "super creative" ... "super supreme being". Let me know if you have any ideas on this. I also like (dashes) " - " a lot. Judy C just wondering

...s are called ellipsis (here's more info from wikipedia). and i only counted 13, so you're good.

Katy said...

I'm so glad you posted a photo of yourself! You and your little boy are as cute as buttons! (I love the mirror shots, I think having the dSLR in front of me makes me look thinner...not that you have to worry about that!)

Ange said...

Love the pic of the two of you! What a cutie!
