Quilting.. and Valentines day Presents.... it worked!!

 Remember last week... I was hinting about Valentines Day ?? And maybe a little dark chocolate??? I am here to tell you HINTS WORK!! oh ya!!

Oh ya - he snuck out and!!

Got me some Dark Chocolate... the good stuff from Sees!!

and guess what? It is not all gone yet... but I have made a dent... sometimes chocolate is way better than dinner...

But then!! Guess what else he came home with?


Now first of all that is not my photo... I have graciously taken the time to find this showerhead ONLINE for you!!

Okay - it is called a Powerpulse - and I love it!

After working on the computer and my longarm and throwing hay, and scooping grain, and pretending that I know how to cook - you know all the tension that sits right there in your shoulders?

Well - this is the answer!!  ( especially when you can not convince the world to stop and give you a massage) 

I rarely get excited about something like this - but I have had it just under a week, and already I am in love ... The ad says it reduces muscle tension - and I am here to say - yep!

In the center of the showerhead that circle there - you can switch the showerhead to that function and it pulses the water on your head and neck - its kinda like a scalp massage... so good for headaches!

Anyways because I really wanted to brag on my husband for getting the Valentine hint I felt you needed to know - he is not all about the chocolate... he is also about making sure someone is healthy to cook for him ... Bwahh haha!!

And these can be found at Costco - here is the Link : Powerpulse Therapeutic Showerhead

and now that I have less Muscle Tension - I get to show you clips of these recent quilts I have worked on!!! Are you ready??

This is an in process shot - These Stars were so cool and the secondary blocks set them off. She ( my Client) said - how about something more modern... and I was stumped - but I loaded the quilt anyways and just started staring at it... staring is a most important part of quilting ( right?) 

and then it came to me - Triangles, and make the stars look like shooting stars!! and I loved it... good thing she did too... 

More hearts!! This client made a Bed Runner for Valentines Day - and she said... lets add hearts... so .... I hearted it - haha!! this is a Deb Geissler Pantograph - it turned out great!!

Off to Quilt!!!

I'm glad you are getting relief from your showerhead--it sounds wonderful! I think I stare at some projects on the quilting frame for days and days before it comes to me what to do! Your designs turned out beautifully!

Sitting and Staring is all part of our game, haha. Looks like it is paying off big time! Wow your showerhead sounds wonderful.

Those sound like wonderful gifts. I hope the muscle tension continues to be better as a result of the new showerhead!!

Congrats on receiving two of my favorite things for Valentine's Day, Alycia! See's is my favorite. You are right about that showerhead... I wouldn't give mine up for the world. (Even removed it before selling the last house and brought it with us to install in the new one!)

That shower head DOES look nice to have! Very nice along with the chocolates. :) Love the way you figured out to quilt the starts quilt - it looks terrific! And that pantograph on the valentines runner is very pretty.

Ohhhh, I'm giggling! I've had a similar showerhead from WaterPik for years, and no! you can't have it! Glad your sweetie got you one of your own.

And I don't think my Sees are going to make until 2/14 either.

Good job, Mr.

I love stars and the quilting. Great job Alycia

Oh my gosh, girl -- you are reading my mind! All of these Valentine's Day projects all over the Internet are giving ME wicked cravings for dark chocolate, too! But no one has snuck off to the store to procure said chocolate on my behalf, so I'm nearly desperate enough to hide in my pantry and eat chocolate chips right out of the bag. Shhh; don't tell anyone!

It is the little things in life that make it sweet (though those often come with lots of calories too). Your Guy did good, chocolate for the soul and shower head for the body. Very different quilts and very different quilting, both look great.
