Nuts about bloghop

Nuts about.....
OH so many things!  When I thought what and who I'm most crazy about, one of the first people that came to mind was my sweet Jesus -💕 God's only Son loves me so much that He gave His life for me when I didn't even care. Totally undeserving of His love and He loved me anyway. And because I accepted that gift of salvation, I now have not only a home in heaven, but sweet, sweet friendship with him now.  How could I not be nuts about Him?
💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕
I'm also pretty much nuts about:
💕my Kidlets. I get to be Aunt Bobbie not only to my nieces and nephews but all the kids in church too. 
💕my residents at the nursing home.
💕 Aurifil thread - I've become a thread snob
💕Quilting
💕 Tea and Coffee - even my cats names reflect that!
💕My Cats - Earl Stanley Grey and Espresso. 
I'm also going completely nuts because I'm in the middle of packing to move!   And it's become obvious that I'm also nuts about 💕reading - I'm on box #17 of books and I still have 2 bookshelves left to pack! I did manage to get rid of some books, maybe like... Ten or so...  I know... "she's nuts"  just wait until I count the💕 fabric totes!
Since I'm moving and it was kinda unexpected,  my project... Isn't started yet and is now 5:37pm. I'm going to make something...
💕It's now 7:58 pm After some deliberation I decided to use a Wordless book quilt block (which uses color to share how to get to heaven) that I found while packing and some of my favorite valentine fabric to make a tote bag.  Nothing real fancy but fun to make!  I cut the block into a heart and stitched it to the pocket with black Aurifil 50wt.

Cute little Valentine tote! Your move sounds like mine - fabric and books. LOL I have a store room in Phoenix. After all the years things have been stored there, I could have bought the books several times over, and the bookshelves I stored, too! What a dork. But we won't even talk about the fabric! LOL Best of luck in your move. Thanks for not using embedded comment box, as I can't comment on those. It won't let me!

I'm going to be moving (again) in the next couple of weeks as our home is almost finished it's remodel. Don't like moving. It's not easy with 3 cats. Love your Valentine heart.

Cute kids, adorable kitties and sweet tote. Praying for a safe and reasonably easy move, that is probably an oxymoron.
But with God anything is possible.

Really cute.

Kathy E. said...

I am nuts about anything with hearts too. I have some of the same black fabric with text on it...great idea to use it for a Valentine tote!

LJ said...

The tote is really cute with the 'love' fabric but the heart pocket was the best. Thanks for sharing all your nutty loves. Hope the move goes smoothly for you.

lefuntz said...

Moving and you still managed to make a cute little tote. I know how you feel about the books. I have a hard time getting rid of them too.

Beth said...

Lots of sweet photos. Thank you for sharing, and for making time for a blog hop in the midst of all your busyiness.
