Seven things

I got the idea from Daisy to post about seven things that make me smile.

1. Each cold winter day that we get through is one day closer to spring!

2. My family makes me smile every day. My kind son, Daniel, who has shoveled a TON of snow in the last two weeks, and Larry, the nicest guy in the world, who went to visit my mom when I had to work on my day off, and David with the dazzling smile, who works so hard to achieve his goals.

3. The fun I had "planting" pansies in this basket. I'm still trying to decide if I should add a bit of pink in a narrow border before binding it in green. Opinions welcome!
4. Mr. You Tube is teaching me to crochet! This is just simple single crochet (with a really untidy beginning), but Mr. You Tube is equally proficient in granny squares, which I hope to learn next.
5. We have a new girl starting at work tomorrow, which means I shouldn't have to work on my day off next week, as I have this week and last. A day off always makes me smile!

6. The quilt show starts tomorrow. BIG smile!

7. All my blog friends make me smile! I have learned so much and been inspired to try new things, thanks to you.

7 1/2. My four o'clock slice of cake with Ginny. Mmmm.

Great post Diana!
I think a pink border would look great. Your appliqué is lovely :)

MY oh MY! I didn't think you could eat so barely left another slice for me and Cecil
and just like Church Folks you asked for a doggy bag :o)
I better make sure I have a plenty when I know your coming...Ginny

Daisy said...

Diana, I really liked this post. I'm glad you decided to make this list. My family makes me smile just about every day, I think. Your pansies quilt looks great! I think a pink border would look really nice too. It would pick up the pink already there in your flowers. I'm looking forward to seeing your progress with the crochet. Hope the quilt show goes well! You must be very excited.

I enjoyed your 7 things that make you smile.
You tube is a wonderful resource I often use it for scrapbooking techinques.
Looking forward to seeing your crochet.

Thanks, Tine, I did use the pink border! This was a method of applique I hadn't tried before. I like it.

Mmm, Ginny, thanks for the cake. Lucky for me cyber cake is calorie free!

Thanks for the idea, Daisy, and for your encouraging words. We do what we can to get through winter, don't we?

Suzanne, I am amazed by all the things you can learn from You Tube. Even juggling and hula hooping. :>}

Liz, how fun to see my in person friend here in blogland! Thanks for visiting. See you soon, and we'll have some non calorie free cookies. :>}
