pouch, zips, flowers and cupcakes

First off, Happy Valentine's Day to everyone.

I received a great package today for the Pretty Little Pouch swap on flickr.
It has denim fabric and beautiful orange fabrics.  I gave a hint that I didn't really have anything that had orange in it so if my swap partner had some and wanted to use them that would be great.  She did and I love it.  It even has some great orange lining and of course my all time favourite, hexies.  She also included a great shopping bag with hexies (in some prints I've seen other people using and raving about).  There was even some chocolate (which I had to give some to youngest daughter as she wanted my lovely pouch).  Thank you Judy.

I also received an order of zips I made.  I have been waiting for these so I can make one of those fantastic Triple Zip Pouches.  Now I just need time.  I've also signed up for a Stitch Me Up blog hop and am working on my piece for it.  I signed up for the April Showers blog hop as well for which we all make a mug rug with our interpretation of what April Showers means to us.  Better get a move on.

Hubby gave me some beautiful flowers (I love flowers).  There's a big fuzzy red heart in the middle of them.

As a treat the four of us are going to have one of these after dinner (I know I'm on a diet but it's Valentine's Day).
