This Saturday will be spent 4x4ing with our Toyota club, in the mountains, it will be so enjoyable and refreshing, what are your plans for the weekend?

This is our FJ Cruiser, so much fun!

  1. Valerie – your totally adorable both in person & spirit! Thank for the wonderful comments about the Whimsical Honeypot… thank you, thank you, thank you. I’m sure that come March – readers will be flying their way to your blog to relax and visit with you here. What a pleasure it has been to get to know a little more about another friend in this wonderful world of quilting/stitching & patchwork.

    ps: I think your a little like me… lots of projects on the go… hehe. One day, I’ll get to to finish something personal that is not work related… (maybe when I retire LOL)

    take care – have a gorgeous day filled with creative stitches!!

    A quote from one of my favourite authors:

    "Do you have quilts in progress?"

    "Yes, indeed. That’s a question you never have to ask a quilter. There are quilts in our heads, quilts in the way we pile fabric on our shelves, quilts on our design walls, under the needles on our sewing machines Quilts waiting to be bound. Always quilts. Some of us will die planning the next one. We won’t even notice that final breath."
