Happy Valentine's Day!

The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother.
Theodore Hesburgh
Valentine's Days are special because of my husband and my family.  We celebrated our oldest's birthday Saturday.  He turned 23 last week.  I keep looking at pictures of the boys I have out around the house.  Pictures of them as babies, toddlers and teenaged boys.  Such sweetie pies!  
"All because two people fell in love." 
Hubs and I celebrate 25 years of marriage in 2015.  My boys have had a good role model as they have grown up.  I love my man!  I look at him and think of all the memories we've made, the hard--incredibly hard--times we've gone through and made it through together.
Very thankful.
Because he has shown his children, in many, many much he loves me! 
This week I finished up a project I started last year during Soccer Season.  I try to crochet one blanket a year through practices and games.  Just a simple single chain (so I don't have to worry about losing count, missing stitches or messing up a pattern) of some gorgeous ocean blues.  It's a respectable lap size throw and the tightness of the stitch makes it very warm!
Also got to whip this pillow together on the quick.  Our living room will be seeing some changes as soon as warmer winds blow our way and I'm slowly adding new things in to help inspire and encourage me to get my painting groove on quick!
Another "M".  This time just appliqued and zig-zag stitched down on some happy, beachy blue.
I was crushing on this pillow too.  After our Christmas trip to Gulf Shores, I really want to bring the beach feeling of peace, relaxation and fun back to our house.
Out came oceany blue and sandy neutral scraps.
I love it!  Lots of neutral scraps from KT this last time.  Thank you friend!  Deciding to use a vintage sheet of whites and blues to be the "wave" breaking on the "sand". 
A little bit later, and this sweet, little shore bird has a place to strut his stuff for now.

  1. How lovely your boys have such a wonderful role model as your husband. Life quickly passes by, doesn't it, filled with many, many precious memories. I must say the Pinterest cushion is amazing. Your interpretation of a happy beach scene is going to be another lovely quilt. I can so feel the love oozing from your pretty heart cushion.

  2. I love it! And congrats on 25 years. :)

  3. Love your pillow! Yay for a happy scrappy picture.

  4. Congrats to you and your hubby! Such a fun scrappy piece!
