I can't wait to chat.....

Here in Australia, Tuesday is quite a few hours ahead of where Patrice lives in the US and I am so eager to see what the topics are this week for Chats on the Front Porch. Guess I will have to be patient and get on with some sewing in the meantime. Teddlywinks Tea Party is coming together easier than I thought and looking good.

Are you doing anything special for Valentine's Day? 
Nope!  Hubby is not big on Valentines Day but in saying that he did get me a card one year (many, many years ago), it was very special and I still have it in a very safe place.

When you attend something that isn't totally casual, are you likely to wear dress pants or a dress?
 Not dress pants.....I can never make them work.  Not a dress......hard for me to find one I like enough (on me).  Generally, I wear a skirt and top ensemble.

 Do you use a regular toothbrush or one of the battery run kind?
Ahhhh, yes, I have a battery run toothbrush and I looooooove it but on a recent dental visit, my dentist told me to ditch the battery toothbrush and start using an ultra soft toothbrush in order to save my tooth enamel. Not liking it very much so I am going to use the battery one a couple of times a week just to get that deep clean feel.

 Did you have valentines in school when you were a child?
Not something that stands out in my memory.  I don't think I ever received a valentines message when at school. I longed for one every year.....but no such luck!

 If you could learn a new craft tomorrow, what would it be?
To crochet.  Just today I bought a quilt mag and there was a crocheted baby blanket in it made out of colourful granny squares. I would love to give it a go.  My mum was an accomplished crocheter which is probably why I never gave it a go. Why would I when I had all the crocheted doilies/tablecloths/bedspreads I could possibly need. My mum, however, never made anything that wasn't in white cotten thread.



  1. Very interesting to learn a few more things about you.

  2. Hmmm, maybe I should come for a visit. I'll teach you how to crochet, and you can teach me the fine points of quilting!

  3. I live in the same city as you so maybe I can teach you to crochet?

  4. My husband never does anything for Valentine's Day either. He isn't much of a romantic! LOL I wish you lived closer as I could teach you to crochet as well!

  5. Funny my dentist recommended a sonic toothbrush to save my enamel! So who knows. I have some spots of recession from brushing them away but I haven't got any new ones since I started using the sonic brush and sensitive toothpaste. I hope yours don't get any worse either. Tooth problems are the pita.

  6. Love these "Chats" - I cant remember the last time I wore a dress...I can crochet too - no shortage of offers to teach you it seems. No Valentines in school for me - I don't even really remember it was mentioned much - but then I was in an all girl conventional school - hardly anyone had a "boyfriend"!

  7. well, that is interesting about what your dentist said - i wonder? funny how some dentists say different things. which one is right? makes my head hurts. nice to meet you - have a great week. i enjoy these front porch chats. ( :

  8. My husband isn't into Valentines day. He says he likes to show his love all year not just on Feb 14.

    Quilting is something I would love to learn. I'm working slowly on teaching myself crochet.

  9. Hi, Cath! I bet you could crochet a blanket like that. There are lots of tutorials on YouTube. My daughter learned to crochet that way and she can make some lovely things now. Happy Valentine's Day!
