I'm in love ...

with red buttons
with Sergei ... how can you not love a red bird :)
with my new sewing machine ...
with finishes ...
February Baubles from a F&S exchange back in 2008
Love by Carol of iStitch - freebie found here

Valentine by Primitive Hare - freebie found here

with fun framing ... I love the oval frame with this design ... I gave it to Monica (my daughter-in-law) for her birthday this week. She loved it.
with a very old design that I finally had framed and I couldn't be more happier with it.
Share with me what you are in love with *smile*

Rest In Peace Whitney ... you'll be missed. Terry and I were talking about this first time we ever heard her. We were with friends that had just bought her album. We sat around drinking wine and enjoying the album ... good times.

I hope you find your Joy in your stitches ...

I'm grateful for my family ...

So many lovely things you have shared Michele! I'm sure your daughter-in-law was thrilled with her gift - the oval frame is so pretty. I am in love with life, my family, the simple things that make every day special and the ability to have a passion that passes the time with a smile!
