Journals, Crocheting and Valentine's Day

I had a wonderful weekend (my weekend of Monday and Tuesday). It snowed both days. I love getting to stay inside when it storms.

Monday morning I straightened up my studio and spent some time sorting through my bookcase. In the process I found six . . . count them six journals. I have a "thing" for journals. I love them. I collect them. I have plans to make a few more. I never seem to fill one before I start another one. These are my creative journals (I have another collection of personal journals). The tulip one in the top left is used for quilt and sewing project planning. The one in the top middle holds graph paper and is used for charting blocks. The one in the top right is the newest one of the bunch and holds notes on crocheting projects. The bottom three are still empty. Maybe someday they will be filled. Do you collect journals? How do you keep your creative notes?
I received the last of my Christmas book purchases yesterday. I skimmed it last night. The process looks a little challenging, but fun. I can't wait to spend a few afternoons playing with the patterns.
I'm still crocheting my Paradores Scarf. I have all three panels done, now I need to block them before putting them together.

In the meantime, I saw Leanne's Be My Valentine cross stitch pattern and decided I should stitch it. I'm using Finca and Cosmo floss and having fun working the pattern.
Mr. E is now crawling . . . the world will never be the same. Mommy is already learning babies find everything she missed when cleaning the floors!

What are you up today?
