A Hint of Pink

Happy Valentine's Day! We really don't make a big deal of Valentine's Day (it was lunch time before Paul and I even thought to say it to each other, lol), but I did think it would be fun to incorporate a little extra pink into my day 😊

I started by stitching this pink EPP star to its background. It has been folded up in my sew together bag, just waiting its turn, for months, so it feels good to have it finally added to the stitched pile.

Then I made sugar cookie bars with the kids I babysit, with pink icing, of course. These cookie treats are about my only Valentine's Day tradition. They're so good and so much easier than cutting out and icing individual cookies.

That quilt in the background? Nathan saw me working on it the other day and asked if it was a Valentine's quilt. It's not, but it certainly fits the theme 😊 Here's a close-up of the heart free motion quilting. That was really fun and relaxing to stitch.

I'll be sharing this sweet baby quilt as part of a project party celebrating Mathew, aka Mister Domestic's new fabric line, Playroom, so I can't share it just yet. My day is February 27th 😊 My plan is to have the pattern ready then, too, so I guess I should get moving with the pattern writing process, lol.

Here's where the quilt sits now, just waiting for its binding to be finished. I had hoped to get it done last night, but ended up finishing my book instead. What can I say? I love my books, too! It was The Cruel Prince, if you're wondering, and it was really good.

Do you have any big Valentine's traditions? Aside from the sugar cookie bars, the only other thing we do that might qualify as a Valentine's tradition is buying chocolates the day after, when they've been reduced to 50% off, hehe.


  1. I don't have any big Valentine's Day traditions, but the sugar cookie bar is one I can support! I hope you have a great day!

  2. No! No Valentine's traditions here at all. We know we are blessed to have had 33 years of marriage but celebrate that on our wedding anniversary not Valentines Day.

  3. OH, you lucky duck playing with Mr. Domestic fabrics! We don't do much on Valentine's day but those sugar cookies look fab!

  4. What Kathleen said! We don’t do much either. I love quilting hearts and loops.


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message. I love hearing from you.
