February has always been a special month for me. (It's my birthday month!) And for all of us, February is the time of year to celebrate the special loves in our lives.
For this new February, I am introducing a series of "Little Quilties". For February, for love, for you to celebrate with me this special month.
There will be a new Little Quilty every month. You might have caught a peek at other little quilties if you have followed my Facebook and Instagram Pages. You can count on these social media sites and the Bareroots website getting filled up with lots of new things!
For additional February fun, I have added a free download of this XOXO Love You Pillow. There are kits available for this sweet cushion. This will be up for only the month of February. Then it will be going into a new project book I am working on.
This February, I celebrate my loves.
I love sewing. I love my family and friends. I love the Sierra Nevada Mountains where I live. And I love so many of you who stitch and sew and have kept me in love with handwork. There has hardly been a day that goes by without an email, a Facebook post, an Instagram photo, a phone call, or a visit in my little shop in Bishop, CA, where I haven't felt the love and joy from a quilter or stitcher.
This February I share and remember my love.
My husbands birthday was a few days after mine. I remember fondly how we celebrated Valentines day, our anniversary and our birthdays in the same week. "Our Week", he called it. I lost him just a few days before our week was to begin three years ago.
This February brings a milestone in my life. I will celebrate the love I had been given. Use the love that has carried me through the past three years. And start this new website and blog at this most special time of the year.
I am ready to create new things again. Venture into a brand new February doing what I love, sewing!
Forever Happy Stitching,
