Today we did NOT stay home all day as planned. Ken was bored from sitting around all day yesterday, so we went to the big Fishing and Hunting Show at the coliseum. It was really a great show and we saw some friends there, so it was a fun day. Tomorrow we are going to some tackle shops in the afternoon...Poor Ken and Rob are just wasting away thinking about how far spring really is! Especially today and yesterday with temps in the teens and ice in the air!

More Valentines and some lace!
This is a lace doily I made tonight on the embroidery machine. I am planning to make several sets of linens for my dining room table this year. The first set will be in pinks and blues. The table runner I made a few weeks ago will be a part of that one. These doilies are small and will be used for wine glasses. The white you see in the background is a stabilizer that is water soluble. Once they are all done, I will sit them in water and it will dissolve!! Amazing! I have several different sizes to make. Here is the third design for the Valentines Day table mat I am making this weekend. He is so adorable. Here is the final piece for the table mat. I am thinking of making this as a square-ish design that will be in the center of the table. When I was with my sister-in-law a few weekends ago, I got some cute Valentines Day fabric squares that I can use between the embroidery blocks. Tomorrow I will make it and see how it goes.
