It’s love day!

14 Feb

Happy Valentine’s Day! We didn’t actually do anything today to celebrate, but then again we usually don’t on Valentine’s Day. Tomorrow we will be going to dinner to celebrate Monkey’s 4th birthday. I can’t believe he is 4 tomorrow. Where did all the time go? He recently learned how to spell his name all by himself which is pretty exciting. I wish I could say the same for his ABCs but he just dosen’t have the patience to get through the whole alphabet quite yet. Today the kids at Monkey’s preschool gave out Valentine’s to each other, he came home with a grocery bag full of cards and candy. Here’s what I put together for him to take

I was really happy with how the hearts came out and I left one slightly open for the photos sake. Today my “Starbucks” dad came in and brought us some cupcakes.

He’s so sweet, he went all the way to Vanilla Bakeshop in Century City to get these. They are so yummy!

Last night I also started piecing together some hexagons, I seem to have caught the bug. They look really hard and time consuming because they are all hand stitched but are actually pretty easy once you get started and I like being able to do that on the couch while watching tv. I’ve been googling hexagon quilts all day long dreaming of the fabric I want to get to fussy cut. Here’s the mini stack I did last night, I actually did a lot more but we were watching season 2 of the Walking Dead until 12:30am and I didn’t get another picture in.

If anyone is curious or interested in reading some tutorials that explain how to do this I will post them tomorrow. The hubby is trying to get me off the computer so we can watch some more Walking Dead. The best part of doing these is that you don’t need a sewing machine. You  basically do it all by hand!
