Mug Mats again!

I know, it is almost a sickness with me those addictive mug mats.  I think it is because you can be creative without investing much time and expense.  Anyways a quilty lady I know had a Birthday  (no ages revealed here) and when a few of us crafty gals got together I knew this was a good way to feed my obsession and whip up a gift.  Quickly I dug into my Valentine fabric stash and after oohing and ahhing over my delectable candy themed fabrics I decided on some yummy goodness and made Ms. Cindy this tasty treat.
Look, no problem if a little chocolate gets smeared on this 'cause who's gonna see it with all these colors right.  Though I can't imagine anyone even accidentally misplacing a minute amount of chocolate.

I also was the recipient of a Valentine mug mat from The Rogue Quilter as you know a challenge is a challenge right-wink, wink!  Gosh I'm spoiled, look what she quilted up for moi!
Imagine that, she had some of the same material I have but she made the MM into a half Dresden style.   So cute, so me!  I have it sitting next to my sewing machine and it feels right at home.
I've been working on a couple of what I call dresser scarves? for my Grand daughters and was to hand deliver them today but alas I couldn't fly back to Saskatchewan with my hubby.  I know they 'll be very disappointed that Gramm couldn't make it but Papa is loved dearly too so he'll have to make up for my absence.  This was when they were in the planning stages. 

 Look at those angel wings aren't they so sweet.  I used my Slice to cut out these shapes and let me tell you once you start cutting you can go hog wild and get lost for hours cutting out flowers, hearts, wings, etc.  I love that little gadget and what's great about it is it's so small that I can tuck it away without sacrificing much storage space.

The season of cherry blossoms are upon us and that means here in Victoria Spring is not that far away. 
I took this picture a couple of days ago closer to dusk near the Gorge Rowing and Kayaking Club and as I don't own a sophisticated camera this is as good as it gets.  As well as Cherry blossom time it is Blood Orange season and I try to consume as many as my budget allows.  

These yummy oranges are pretty pricey and I'm sure glad my hubby doesn't like them otherwise I'd have to share.  But them he likes Granville Island beer and I don't so there's the trade off.

Well I think it's time to head to my sewing room and enjoy a quiet Sunday and for those of you who just might watch the Super Bowl's half time show let's keep our fingers crossed that Madonna doesn't have a wardrobe malfunction either this year!
