Taking Time to Enjoy Friday!

My picture from Wordless Wednesday is my violets in my teacup pot, but I should have taken a full picture with my teapot pot with pansies the same coloring. . . .so here's what they look like together (not the best picture, it's cloudy outside.

They are both happy plants, but I'm afraid with all the very cold temps we'll get the next few days them won't be.

I also think we have the prettiest tree on the road here - it was beautiful yellow a few days ago and now is a rich red.
I have done some "non-quilting" lately.  I need more skirts for church, so found this quick and simple pattern at the shop and thought I'd try it out....LOVE it!  So, now I have fabric for second one as well.  First fabric is a new line from Moda called Etchings by 3 Sisters and the other fabric is from Kaffe Fassett.

 Now to enjoy my day off and see if I can learn how to knit....scary isn't it? :)


  1. I love the tree. Cute skirt! YouTube is your friend for learning anything. Good luck and have fun!

  2. Even in the overcast light, those flowers just glow! I like the tea cup & pot plant pots too - very cute. I may need to do something like that myself. :D
    Nice skirts - beautiful fabric & they really look comfy.

  3. has excellent videos. Good luck.

  4. Love the skirt Toni. I have not made clothes in ages. Was it an easy pattern?

  5. Join in my other obsession...Knitting! You'll have a wonderful time. You'll have to divide your sewing room into yarn space and fabric space but it's great fun!

  6. Love the skirt! I have that pattern and have made two fun skirts from it. You make me want to make some more now. (Which is good... heaven knows, I have the fabric for it!) :P
