I have been frustrated that I haven't been able to get as much done in the evenings as I used to. Most days, after I get the kids in bed, I get sucked into the couch and the television and can barely make it more than an hour or so.
Yesterday I solved this trouble by having a tiny cup of coffee after dinner. That definetely did the trick and I was able to get everything set for the Valentine atc swap I signed up for.
Here is my sweet little series. I just love making atc's from fabric. I zigged them onto cardstock for some body. Plus, that makes it easy to sign and date the back. I used the same word as I did on all my Christmas atc's. JOY! It works for every holiday, don't you think?
Amy put a spin on the swap by asking us to include some little goodies to go along with the atc's. I decided to jazz up some match boxes.
I also finished quilting tall skinny. I blocked it yesterday, so now it needs to be trimmed and I can start some more surface embellishment. The Klimt inspired quilting motifs were really fun, but I'm eager to get back to some simple hand embroidery. Ah... the list is long.
