Valentines Day.... yesterday... and WIPs

My family is sick.
Courtesy of mom! I got a bad cough that developed into bronchitis last week, and now all three of my girls and I are vegging out on the sofa, with our quilts of course!


So for Valentines Day, I woke up at 1 am, feeling awful! Saw my husband had written a sweet Valentines day note on the mirror (dry erase) and I felt guilty because I had done nothing for him. I spent a few weak moments writing a long note to him on his mirror. He had a card for me with an amazing personal letter, and a bag of chocolates from the kids. He feels like he didnt do much, but WORDS mean so much to me!! I really felt loved. He also came home and made dinner, that was major brownie points for him.

Did I mention that he walked into the house with an arm FULL of packages and said they were for me? I felt like a kid in a candy store! I got my polka dot charms from a swap, AND the fabric I won from Sunny in CAL..
Polka Dot Charms!!


There was also a bonus piece of GORGEOUS fabric!!!


I have not gotten much done, but I did finish a small token for the girls for Valentines Day. I had planned on bigger pillows but ended up with just enough strength to manage these. They must be a hit, even the oldest is still carrying hers around.
I used a tutorial for a start, but ended up having to make my own pattern for these.


Well, the old body is crying for some rest. Im off to the sofa for more healing.
