happy Valentine's day...

Are special things happening in your house today? Since we're in for another crazy day here it looks like it'll be business as usual. Oh, there'll be a little giftie or two for the girls this evening, and Robyn made a pan of cream cheese french toast to pop in the oven for dinner, but there hasn't really been time for much else. Emily is home sick. Julianna has basketball tournaments all day. I'll catch one of her games this morning and then head for my Tuesday timeout. Robyn's working from home, starting a reno on our basement to build another bedroom since it looks like we're in the homestay way for the long haul. Our Korean student Jenny will likely be buried in homework. Valentine's Day? Not a huge priority. But that's ok. We love each other, and we know we are loved in return.

Yesterday, I did manage to get this little cutie to the binding stage and I'm so pleased with it. It was made with some of the Japanese fabrics I received before Christmas from one of our homestay girls. I'll finish it today and it will be all the Valentine's decorating that will happen this year. But like I said, we love each other, and we know we are loved in return. And that's enough.

(And have you ever tried quilting with slippery fabrics like these--yikes!)

Beautiful as always Kim, and oh how I relate to your busy schedule. We are really committed to our current home as well, the housing market stinks and though we have a nice home in a nice neighborhood, doesn't look like we'll be selling anytime soon so we're going to be adding on in the near future. You'll have to keep us posted on how it goes, so I can get all worn out from your adventure before I start my own. Didn't do much V-day decorating around here either lol* too busy! ;) The girls asked me too, "Mom, why didn't you put hearts up everywhere this year?" I guess I better get going on St. Patty's Day decor. ;)
