A heavy heart on St. Valentines Day

A celebration of love.. that's what it's all about isn't it? I sit here so thankful today, as my kids open up their valentines gifts and give us little homemade cards and kisses in return.. simple.. sweet. They know they are loved, cherished.

But today, my heart aches for a little girl that I have never met, that I already love, and pray that today she is safe and hoping that someday I will be able to watch her joyfully opening her valentines as she was supposed to be doing today.

I am thinking of you today little one, I love you!

Pencil Pouches

Here are the pencil pouches that Gabbie forced me into making ( I'm glad she did now, I think they turned out kind of cute) I had to make about 3 patterns before I got it how I wanted it, but I'm happy with the final result and more importantly, Gabbie is thrilled. I haven't sold my items in a while, I kind of took a break, but now that we have decided to adopt, I have reopened my shop.( every little bit helps!) This will be listed in it later today.

The back of the pouch is the brown and the lining is the red and white polka dot fabric.

I want to add an item to this lot and sell it as a set.. I'm thinking maybe a little lunch money holder?

Finally, some sewing..

Finally back to sewing, my machine has not been feeling well lately and had to go to the Dr. She's home now ( and although I'm not sure I agree with her diagnosis, I'm glad to have her back where she belongs!) Still not up to par..she did manage to help me get a few of these made.

Tissue Cozies

Next I'm working on pencil pouches at the request ( or rather demand) of my daughter who has informed me that she's sick and tired of loosing pencils.
I'm thinking about having my very first giveaway.. would you be interested in winning one of these tissue cozies?
