Happy Valentine's Day to everyone. 

Ally, I love your little pouches. 

I haven't made up my mind whether or not I'm going to add the next round on the Sweet Pea mystery.  My batting from Hancocks finally showed up so I'm going to get busy basting my teapot quilt.  Plus I'm also making the snowman tablerunner from Sweet Pea although I don't think I will use it as a tablerunner.

Thanks, ladies. Not sure about what will happen when he gets home, Ally. He realizes how much of his motor skills he's lost since he's been in the hospital. He said they let him brush his teeth Saturday night but that he couldn't make his arm move back & forth so he held his arm still and moved his head back & forth, instead. <grin>. Where there's a will... His wife is applying for temporary social security until he can get back to work. Such a mess.

Janet, I forgot to say how much I like your little runner. It is pretty. I did something similar a few years ago but, instead of a runner, it's a wall hanging. If I can find the photo, I'll post it.

Not much else in the way of news right now. I had actually thought about coming home today and working on the Sweet Pea Heart topper; but, a nap sort of got in the way. LOL!

Diana sounds like you are rearing to go in your sewing room. Has your Round Robin got a theme?

Janet lovely table runner just in time for Valentine's Day.

Sheila glad to hear that your DB is improving and a good sign that he is wanting to go home. Will he have to have physio o ce he gets home?

Carol I hope that the scan will be soon and they can decide how they are going to treat him, the sooner the better. I know with my DH with the kidney stones it been a long haul waiting on this test and that and can be frustrating. He also goes in April for his six month check up for the Prostate.

Today was icey so decided to stay indoors so worked away in my sewing studio on some pouches fir my Christmas in Paris stock.

Thanks everyone.  I have been enjoying making some of these quickie projects as well as using fabric that I have had for way too long.

Great news on your brother Sheila.  I hope he is able to go home soon.  I'm so grateful that Larry didn't get any sicker than he did after hearing what happened with your brother!

Diana, I have done a lot of round robins & row robins over the years and they are some of my favorite quilts.  I have been in some where each round had specific instructions such as having to use half square triangles and then in some where each person could choose what they wanted to do.  I prefer the kind with fewer instructions.  How many people are in the one you are in?  I like to keep the round robin groups to 5 maximum  to keep the cost lower.  I figure everyone can add to their tops when they get them back if they want a larger one.  I have done row robins with up to 6 & that worked out okay.

I woke up to see a lot of ice on the ground again this morning.  We really haven't had a huge amount of snow this year, but we sure have had a lot of ice!

That's good news Sheila. Sounds like he's motivated too.

Cute table runner, Janet. Just in time for Valentine's Day. I haven't changed out my snow people yet., but I do have a pretty spring bouquet from DS2 and DIL to brighten things up.

Diana, we did a round robin exchange in Janet's other group. (Piece Around the World) It was fun. 

Carol I'd forgotten that it was for the baby. It will be cherished, I'm sure.

Sheila, glad to hear your brother is doing better.

Comment by Sheila Craft on Monday

Saw DB yesterday. He's been moved to rehab & is anxious to get better. He can now use a speaking trach so is able to communicate. What a difference! He's got some mobility & coordination things to work on as well. Progress is good.

Happy Valentine’s Day Janet, love your runner.

just joined a Round Robin, first time for me, anyone else take part in these?

As I was away for the start I knew I had a block already made at home, so now we are back it’s on it’s way to California. I am quite excited to be taking part.

time now to get my Happy Room sorted out so I can start sewing.
