Platters, Piecing, and Scraps

A Valentine's present to myself....

That just happens to match my very-favorite Easter candy...mmm... Cadbury candy coated chocolate eggs.  I would happily eat a bag a day of these little guys!

I'm still very very slowly working on my fall quilt.  I find that I have to take my time on large projects, or else by the time it's done, I won't want to look at it. I've done a lot of chain piecing, which has helped it to go faster, but I'd still rather just twitch my nose and have it all be done! 

I've accumulated a nice little container of scraps from this quilt top:

And I have considered giving them away...

I'll have to think about it though (or be talked into it)- I am just so in love with these colors!

Pup Cup

Just a quick note to say hello...

And to let you know Dax has picked up my addiction to coffee.

What??'s just whipped cream.... but yes, he just kind of likes it. Can't you tell?

It's finally finished and will be sent on its way soon enough....

I do appreciate that this little quilt taught me how to finally stipple. After adjusting the tension on my sewing machine 495 times, that is.

I hope this little family loves it as much as I do.
