Happy 2014

Happy 2014 Y'all.  
Can you believe it is already 2014.  Time is really flying by fast.  
We have been busy with family.  Some we have not seen in many years.  So it has been fun catching up.  I am so ready for things to slow up a bit again.

I have been in a heart making mood.  So when I have a had a little time I made this heart needle holder.  I am just in love with Tanya Whelan's Valentine Rose.

This pink scallop fabric is also from Tanya Whelan's Valentine Rose line.  The lace on the front of the heart is from a wedding dress.

In November I was shopping with some friends in Olde Town Katy.  They showed me a shop that I did not know was there.  Such a sweet shop full of vintagey things and old sewing machines.  Look what I brought home with me.  It is a Betsy Ross sewing machine.   This machine is the coolest thing ever.  It works and sews without a bobbin.   When I went to put it on my shelf I noticed on the other side of the shelf  where some Betsy Ross Paper Dolls.  I totally forgot I had them, so of course I had to put them together.

I know that some of you that live up North are really getting a lot of snow and cold temps.  Old man winter seems to be a bit cranky this year. lol.  I love the snow, but of course that is probably because we do not get snow this far South in Texas.  Hope all of you are keeping warm and are snug safely in your homes.
