Scallops and ruffles

This post was supposed to be about pretty things.  I was hoping to make a scalloped basket liner and some ruffly pillows.  Instead of a day spent at the sewing machine, it was spent trying to get my hubby off to Montreal and me over a dreadful stomach flu.  To top it off, winter finally hit us here and dumped loads of snow on us.  I am stressed. 

It is at these times that I wish more than anything I did not work OUTSIDE the home.  I want to hunker down with my kids and not worry about my mother making it to my house in the middle of a snow storm so that I can then, a nervous nelly, make my way slowly through the storm to an office where those there really do not care about how horrible a drive it was for me or my dear mom.  But we will do that today.  My mom and I.  And I will also pray that my love has made it to Montreal.

Until I have the time and the calmed heart to make the pretty things, here is my inspiration...

I'm also inspired by her ruffly pillow.  And her ruffly table cloth.

Is r u f f l y a word?

I hope so.
