Time for a celebration dance---
We did get some snow--about 5-6 inches---so not lots to have to deal with--but enough that everything is real pretty and shinny and glistening out there---

the second order from Cotton Charms--Kelly--came in today--here is more of the Birdie line for the Spring Sew In---
and here is what I used my gift certificate that I won on---the Verna line---I just love the colors in this line---can't wait til I have some time to look around at patterns for this line---maybe March's Schnibbles pattern will work!!!!!

And now---

This story is about a rocking chair--
You see Di bought this rocking chair off the side walk over town this past summer and it worked in her bedroom very nicely--and she even found the "perfect" rose fabric to make cushion for it at about the same time---BUT---did she?????
No--poor rocker has sat in her room "naked"--(unless it was holding some "items" that Di was too busy/lazy to put in the right place!!!

Then along came February's First Friday Freebie--It was a rose embroidery work---so Di put on her thinking "cap"--she likes roses--but she really did not want to do a red rose, as that would mean she would pack it away with the Valentines things as she does not have a place for red--except the kitchen--the rest of the time!!!!!
then it "hit" her what she would make with the FFF----and she hunted until she found just the right color fabric for the background and the right shade of embroidery thread and she started embroidering the rose----and looky what she did---
But now there is more to the story--she also made this --
and then she put them both here---
AND now her green rocking chair is a "Happy Camper" cause it has it's very own "dressing" and it is soooo pretty!!!! and it feels sooooo loved now!!!!
(PS--please tell Di not to load me up with "orphans"--I like me just the way I am now!!!!!!  The End!

So my friends I did do alot of sewing today--also got the binding sewed on a small wall hanging--but it is not finished--tomorrow--is another day!!!

TO Little Sister's new fan club (see yesterday's post)--you made her very happy by visiting her new site---thank you!!!

Just three more days to ---Valentines day---are you ready?????

Hugs, and Smiles---Di
