Happy St. Valentine's Day

Well, I've been keeping busy through my pain...You have to keep going! So I've making Fabric collages, cards, ATC's & Organizing my paper/card making supplies storage so it makes more sense to me.
I put all Autumn/Halloween papers/embellishments & cards together in a bag, the same with Christmas & I put Valentine & Easter together in a bag.
This includes all the cards I've made..so everything is in 1 place.
My ATC supplies are in a plastic bin, everything.
this is my ATC bin

 PAPER Storage

3 ATC's
'He is Risen' Easter card
Fabric collage, layers & layers.

Pocket Tag

Fabric/Paper collage
Look what my 2 Guys FINALLY set up for me!!!!!! I've waited 2.5 years for this!
It's a Consew 99E series with a 12' frame...which is what I need because I make big quilts...Bed sized that drape over the edge.
The machine is laser guided & has a stitch regulator...
I bought this from a very sweet lady in Maryland for a song..
My 2 guys drove down to pick it up & stopped at the Antietam battlefield.

More ATC's

Another Feather in my Nest

Just a quick stitch
Valentine ornament
I really needed a break from the mystery...besides still hurts to sit upright. 
Soo, I decided do some stitching.
I belong to Pamela Kellogg's Mystery Sampler group on FB.
There are 4 bands posted, I'm on my 2 band.
I'm sure there will be more.
I added tons of seed beads & Swarovski crystals.

I might just have enough room to add band #3 underneath band #2...it's only 2 panels long.
We'll see. I'm getting ahead of myself, which I do a lot..bad habit.
This was stitched on 18ct hand dyed opalescent aida..
I will NOT
be using it for the rest of the bands as it's difficult to split with all these "specialty stitches''.
I found a 28ct opalescent hand dyed linen piece in my stash. Called 'Erienne'. 
Which is very similar to this aida.
Boy, will that simplify things greatly.

Also, I have stitched & fini 2 Valentine Ornies. 
Also, stitching something special for my Best Friend ever..


Blessings Everyone

Some Progress

I LOVE the Hugs & Kisses border I made!

I'm linked to Bonnie's Linky Party
I'm also linked to
 Finished or Not Busy Hands Quilts
Finished or Not Friday at Busy Hands Quilts

           Can I get a Whoop Whoop!

when we cut the side tri's..
I just made a couple coasters with them..so cute.
 I have a particular Coral fabric I want to incorporate into the top of the quilt..
I used this fabric as my sashing 
 Do you see the name of this fabric? I couldn't make this up!
Click on the ABOVE pic to see.

 So many Gals are finished with their quilt tops.
And some have fini the Quilt & bound it.

 Rag quilt measuring 27" X 22.5" Preemie sized. This will also be going with the 2 machines to the shelter. Incredibly soft flannel, just came out of the wash.
 This Beefsteak Begonia I just put it in a bigger pot then it did this..Do you see the 2 Bloom stalks? I am thrilled that it is doing so well..The hanging plant is a 'Neon Pothos' that needs a trim. On the windowsill is a Bantel's Sensation Sansevieria.
Thank you my plant Fairies.

Finally...We are in the middle of a Blizzard.
 The snow has been coming down since 4:00 am sideways all day...
The winds are wicked.

I really haven't been feeling well lately.
 this Hiatal hernia really does hurt among all my other chronic pain.
I'm just a mess! Ha
I think that's why I haven't done more sewing..
well, there is another story to that but I won't get into it now.

Blessings to Everyone
