This past weekend I attended my first quilt retreat. I almost didn't get to go because I got sick :o( I missed Friday eve and Saturday morning but made my way over by dinner time. I had prepaid and wanted to get what I could out of it. I didn't feel my best but had a good time just the same. I loved seeing all the projects the ladies were working on, we have some beautiful quilters and sewers. This is the mystery quilt we did, I FINALLY got my done after a few incidents involving my thread ripper :o( My head wasn't so clear..ah well.

This is basket number 2 for tisket a tasket...Isn't it so sweet!!
I made this little bookmark today for a dear friend of mine. I have ordered her a book from an author she likes and will put this in it for her bday.

Everything Valentine's <3

We had a wonderful Valentine's Day. Well who wouldn't if they had chocolate cupcakes with buttercream icing!! yummmmmmy
Sugar cookies with colored white chocolate for icing : )

Getting creative with the heart shape cookie cutter. I made a special vday breakfast for hubby and the kids.

Heart shaped tortilla..I cut out of the big tortilla wrap thingies. Brushed lightly with olive oil, lightly salted and baked till crisp...super cute and yummy with quacamolie.

Roses from my sweet : )

This was Valentine's Day #17 for fortunate.
