Hooray!

Yay, I have a flimsy!!!  First one this year!



Now to dig up some batting - and oh yeah, backing!  Of course, I finished it at night, when there's no light for pictures.

Speaking of pictures, mum wishes you all a happy valentine's day yesterday!



Oh that smug look when she's drinking hot chocolate.  Once a rebel, always a rebel - she's diabetic, she should know better.  How well I remember last year, taking care of her and her almost losing her foot!

Not that *I* have any vices.....*ahem*  As I sit here eating my bag of Reese's.  I guess I come by it honestly!

Love,
Allie

Happy Valentine's Day to the Rebel with Hot Chocolate, and congrats on a very pretty flimsy finish - just in time for spring (which is hopefully just around the corner? PLEASE?!) and Easter :)

So pretty, Allie. Waiting anxiously for Spring's return, but wishing a Happy Valentines Day to you and your mum. I love how she lives her life with her passion. By the way, while I was sick, I couldn't tolerate sugar, but I was given a wonderful gift of a DELICIOUS sugar free candy. Its Russel Stover's mint patty with dark chocolate. Oh my. I'm spoiled for regular York Patties, now, even though I can digest sugar again. Maybe mum would like them, too. I think of them as a guilt-free vice :) Hugs

Spring! As I sit here staying inside close to the wood stove with a Winter Storm Warning from Environment Canada, I find it very cheering to see your lovely flowered bouquet. Pretty, pretty colours; just what my eyes needed today!

How pretty! I want Spring NOW! We had a little snow yesterday, followed by a lot of freezing rain. I will need ice skates to get to my car later. The streets have been treated, and don't look too bad.

Your poor Mum. It must be tough being diabetic!! I would be an awful failure I'm sure ;-)

Your work is very sweet. I like it. I understand his Mum: hot chocolate is irresistible :)

Such a lovely Spring top! You'll have fun quilting it. That hot chocolate looks extra good, I hope your mum enjoyed every drop of it.

We ALL come by it honestly ... and pass it along, too! Happy Valentine's Day to your mom, too! What's the point of living if you can't enjoy the time? Love your finish. It's adorable!

I like to drink out of the glasses like the one you show with the chocolate drink in it. You would not catch me drinking hot chocolate though. Never have cared for it.
