Birthday Gifts

It is raining cats and dogs here right now. We just got back from Moncton just in time. Trying to find groceries for my husband to cook for himself while I am away on a cruise for two weeks. My friend Marjorie from Marjories Busy Corner is going with me. Her first cruise. I think she is excited. My husband and I love cruising but with health conditions he is not able to go. I am torn about going without him but I know Marjorie and I will have a great time. 

Here are a couple of runners that I made for birthday gifts.  I love these patterns. They are My Runners by Disa Designs. I love her books. I made two of these tulip runners. One for my mother for Mother's Day. 

I have one more to make. I am doing the one with sun flowers next. I hope to do it tomorrow. My husband is going on a road trip with a friend tomorrow to look at a set of oxen's. It will be good for him to get out. We have another funeral today. This is the third one in the last week. It has been a hard winter for older people. 
Well my bags are all packed for my trip next week so will just do a little puttering until then.

Happy Valentines

A very cold but beautiful day here. Hope everyone is having a great Valentines. My husband bought me home these beautiful flowers and I brought him home a Dairy Queen Valentine heart cake.

They are so pretty.  Nice to have flowers on a cold day.

I also finished this table runner. A fun piece to make. I have another one cut out to work on this afternoon while my husband is at the rink.

This is the material I had left from my curtains that I did for my rec room. Enough to make a table cloth for this corner of the rec room. There was no waste to this material.

This is what I got accomplished this week besides cleaning out cupboard's. Two big garbage bags full. Where does all the junk come from?

A beautiful winter storm which made everything so pretty.  I had my three grandchildren down for the night, Sara, James and Owen. We had a great time. Of course Sara and I did crafts played cards and watching a few episodes  of  Last Man Standing. Sara likes Tim Allen.  Here is Sara with a couple of her projects.

Sara made this beautiful table runner for her mother for Valentines day. A pattern from SewCanShe. I changed it a little for her to make it easier. She appliqued the hearts on.

Sara helped me to make this candle holder that I saw on Pinterest. So cute and looks perfect on my mantel.
The  boys loved the new rec  room and Netflix. They watched TV, played games and had a lot of  laughts.

They look pretty comfy. They didn't spend the night as they had hockey pretty early this morning.

Now to pick James up at the rink and take Sara and James to racquetball.  I haven't seen them play yet so will stay and watch them. A nice weekend.
