Valentine’s, Galentine’s, Palentine’s?

Is there a Palentine’s day?  Like, a guy version of Galentine’s day?  It kind of makes me think of Chancellor Palpatine….before he went all dark side…well openly…anyways…I don’t think that there is a Palentine’s day because I don’t think most guys really care about Valentine’s day to begin with, and they already are freaking out about getting whoever they’re dating/married to/(what else is there?) something fancy or sweet.  They don’t want to get something fancy or sweet for their friends like girls do.  Which is why I’m pretty sure there are Valentine’s and Galentine’s, but probably not Palentine’s.

Anyway! 😀

Happy Valentine’s day everyone!  I wanted to write about things that I love today (and every other day because I’m just a lovey dovey mush bug) AND what I’m working on.

First, I love my sweet husband.  His name is Dax, and he is just the most precious person I’ve ever met.  Sure, sometimes he has this serial killer look and you’re pretty sure he is going to murder everyone that’s in the way in the Shoney’s buffet line, but it just adds to the charm! (ok I can’t even say that without laughing, but it’s true)  For every angry look there is, there is an equally sweet, lovey and cute action.  He’s just the best, I could go on for days, but I’ll just leave it at that.

Here we are, lookin fancy!!!!

Secondly…is my sweet baby puppy, Al!!!  He’s our miniature long-hair dachshund.  Al just turned three this New Year’s Eve, and he is just the best little guy.  He does have some special needs, but he doesn’t let anything slow him down.  He is always willing to lick you, the chair you’re sitting in, the floor next to you…your pillow…okay he licks everything and we can’t figure out why.  Literally, little wet spots on the floor from excessive licking.  I’ve asked him if he has doggy ADHD…but he refuses to answer the question.  He also loves to try to take anything he can reach.  Socks from a basket, a sandwich on the coffee table, batting scraps from my scraps bin….BUT HE’S SO CUTE WHEN HE DOES IT YOU CAN’T STAY MAD AT HIM OMG!


Oh, you’re eating breakfast? I’m going to sit where I can look at both of you and wait until one of you offers me bacon…because I know it is going to happen. GIVE ME BACONS!

Thirdly…….!!!! Is my little Pink Brother.  Okay I know, so silly.  (or…SEW SILLY! HAHA!)  I had a hand me down Singer sewing machine, and it was just awful.  It was a complete monster and it wanted to eat fabric and bang and clank and it was downright embarrassing to sew in my own house!  I finally got fed up and bought a new sewing machine.  I did some research, read reviews, you know, all the grown up pre-purchase things.  Then it was down to two.  XL2600I or XL2610, I ended up with XL2610 and I love it.

Anyhow!  I know the anticipation is building up on what I’ve been working on.  So here’s some pics from last night.

quilting away!
