The "Other" Man in My Life

He drives a distinctive truck and brings me the best gifts. He doesn't visit too often - we wouldn't want to upset DH, you know! He was here just today (I was hoping he'd come yesterday-you know-Valentine's Day-*wink,wink*)

Okay, I'm leading you on a bit; teasing, you know???

Here's the distinctive truck I referred to:

Here's the kind of gifts he brings - it's uncanny how he know exactly what I want!

So, here's what I got from BN:

These are the title of the books my book club will be reading over the next few months.

And here's what I got from Fat Quarter Shop:

Have you met Miniatures? It's a line from Windham Fabrics by Julie Hendrickson. I couldn't resist the neutrals in this line. I've been using up quite a lot of my neutrals, so I took advantage of a recent special they offered - 30% (or was it 40%?) off. A deal, regardless of whichever it was! I'm loving it, especially that darling polka dot on top!!!

So, here are some updates on what I've accomplished in my sewing room today:

I made a binding for a (shhhh!) surprise quilt that will be going to a good friend next month. I cannot wait to show you the quilt! It is a very happy, whimsical quilt!


My Stars and Stepping Stones quilt top has finally been put together. I now need to audition some potential border fabrics. I hand-pieced these blocks, but used the machine make the top. I suppose that I began working on those blocks over 5 years ago. It's a UFO that's been a long time in the making!

Have a great remainder of your Tuesday! I've got a date with my Ohio State Buckeyes tonight - Beat the Spartans!!
