Dreaming of Spring...

We are freezing here in Northern Mississippi! It snowed again yesterday and the snow is still on the ground, which is unheard of. I am so ready for warmer weather. The past few days have been busy, we have been making a lot of hairflowers to post on etsy. I decided to give etsy another shot, since if I don't sell things on etsy maybe I can do a craft show or two this spring.

I also made this

My friend Chris sent me a huge box of fabric a few months ago, and this was in it. This fabric was her grandmothers, and was made into somekind of cover and a table runner, non quilted. I asked her what I could make her as a thank you for the fabric, and she just said anything from the red fabric. So this is what I came up with, I hope she likes it!

We also bought furniture for the sunroom. I found it through Craigslist, and I love it. I can't wait for Spring, so I can work on it to fix it up. They need cushions, which are easy enough to make.

The set is a loveseat with 2 chairs and table. It does need work, so when the weather gets better I need to hose it all down, oil it then recane a few spots. Repainting is the easy part. The hard part is picking out the fabric for the cushions.

Rena had her first Valentines Day party at school on Friday. She loves school, just like her big sister. She is more social though, Evie is my shy girl.

Rena is a talker, her teacher told me "she always has something to add".

*sigh* I hope it gets warmer soon!


  1. Let me tell you girl, EVERY and I mean EVERY one of Nicole's report cards has a reference to her "socialness", her "talkitiveness" and her you know what I am say...lol. Good Luck with that, the grow up to become "public speakers" if you know what I mean.

  2. It is just so wierd, because Evie is so shy and quiet! They are night and day.
