Valentine Ephemera

I love Valentines Day. Before it is over and gone I want to immortalize in blog form the quilt I made the week before Connor was born. After taking down my Christmas quilt, my wall looked so bare that I decided to use the overdue part of my pregnancy to fashion some fabric lovin'. Kellie quilted it for me with loops and hearts that you probably cant see but should appreciate anyway because it's so darn cute!!






Connor looks at this quilt endlessly when he is on the couch. It must be visually stimulating to him, I know it is for me!!








I'll be a little sad to take it down!










Valentines Day wouldn't be the same without sugar cookies!! For the last several years, I have made sugar cookies and delivered them to family and friends. This year I was inspired by Erin to photograph them as yummy food!! All yummy food should be remembered in such a way! Here are the most delicious shots I got with the Cybershot. ( A great point and shoot, but really, when is that digital SLR going to drop out of the sky and land in my lap?)

Tammy, I think I want to lick you quilt and your cookies! They are both so pretty! And, I love that you are my big / unusual word using friend. I learn so much from you!

For anyone else wondering, I'll save you the trouble of looking it up too: Ephemera means "items designed to be useful or important for only a short time."

Tammy, you are truly my hero. I think when Piper was Connor's age I was still in a stupor... in fact I think I am still in it. :-) I'll have to come and pay homage to that beautiful quilt AND the yummy cookies!

Thank you for letting me have free reign over the left over scrumptious fabric you used in your quilt. I loved that line! I appreciate the yummy cookies too.

That quilt is Fabulous!!! I'm sure when the season is over you will replace it with something just as wonderful. And next year you can put it up again!

You wielded your point-n-shoot perfectly and the cookies tasted every bit as delicious as they looked!

Tami, I of course love those fabrics!!! So cute! Do you have a quilt for each holiday season? If you don't you are probably pretty close. I would love to have one to change out for each holiday!

Oh Tammy! I love that quilt! It is so stinkin' cute! I want to make another quilt, but since you are not here to hold my hand through it all, I just can't bring myself to do it.
