Working on the beagle quilt

The weather certainly changed around here. Yesterday at noon, it was 60*. Last night as we were going to bed, it was 15*. Now they are saying we have snow coming in. I guess winter hasn't let go yet. I went to visit mom early this morning. I got all of her monthly bills in order. I had planned to do that tomorrow, but didn't want to take the chance that I would have to drive on snow. I hate driving on snow, even a couple of inches. We had a good visit. She gave me some earrings and some money for my birthday, Monday. Then my oldest brother stopped by. I hadn't seen him since Christmas, so it was good to catch up. He even remembered my birthday and said he would call me on Monday. (grin) He actually gave me some money and told me to treat myself to lunch the next time I am in town. How nice was that! I filled the car with gas before coming home. It has dropped from $1.79 to $1.62. Not sure what is going on with the yoyo gas prices, but sure hope we don't have a repeat of the over $4 a gallon of last summer. I got home just in time to get dh off to work. He is glad that it is Friday. He's looking forward to a couple of days off. I don't blame him. He works hard through the week.

I spent most of the afternoon working on the beagle quilt for dh. I am loving it so far.
What do you think? I paper pieced the zig zag border. I think it is called 3-D in my EQ6. I got the beagle design from this site. They have some amazing applique pictures of animals.
I am trying to decide what to use for the outside border. Which of these do you like best? The dark fabric at the bottom?Or this lighter fabric at the bottom? The plan is to put a 3 inch border around the quilt, then applique this little running dog around it. What do you think? One of these fabrics or a completely different color. He loves blue. Here is the little dog template. Isn't it cute? I put the beagle quilt up till next week. I hope to be able to start quilting it soon, but first have to do all the hand applique. This project has been fun to create and I think my dh will really love it.

I have also been working on some bags and purses. I have already showed you some of the bags I made this week. Here is a purse. I am not really pleased with it. The quilting just doesn't show up well on the flap. I should have used the fabric that I used for the back for the flap. Oh well, maybe I will make another one. Here is the inside. I tried to hold it open so you could see the pockets. LOL Here is the back. Like I said, I am not really thrilled with this one, but it does remind me of spring. LOL Do you see what I mean about the backing fabric? If I had used it for the flap, the quilting would have stood out nicely.
Not sure what the plans are for this weekend. I guess that will depend on how much snow we end up getting. Dh keeps asking me what I want for my birthday, but I can't think of anything. Maybe I will just tell him to buy me some more batting. LOL Sounds like a good birthday gift, doesn't it? He has suggested us going out to eat, but not sure I want to do that. I guess I will just wait and see what sounds good at the moment. Everyone have a nice weekend. I don't usually get time to post on the weekends. Thank you for visiting and please come again.

I feel better!

I feel better today than I have in over a week. Having the tooth pulled has been so rough on me, but I didn't even wake up during the night needing pain meds last night. I think I have finally turned the corner on this. I haven't done much of anything for 8 days, but sit and quilt or read and watch tv. I did manage to keep the necessary things done, but no extras. My hubby was so sweet and told me to do nothing but take care of myself so I could heal. I am still really sore, but the pain isn't throbbing and is controlled with Tylenol. (grin) It feels so good to be getting back to normal. I haven't even been on the computer much in the past week. So I am sorry if any of you were having problems leaving comments. Milah and Bren both emailed me to tell me I had a problem. I hope it is fixed now. If not, then I don't know what to do. LOL Thanks ladies for giving me a warning.

Look what I received in the mail this morning. Milah had four of these and offered up a challenge to 4 quilters to come up with a baby quilt using this pannel any way we wanted. I took her up on it and she sent the panel to me. I have some ideas already. I need to have it done by Easter.
Isn't this just darling? Here is a closeup of one of the blocks. Sorry about the wrinkles. I was so excited when I got it that I grabbed my camera and took a picture before ironing it. (grin) Thank you Milah! I love these prints.
I finished sewing the binding on the Tulip quilt a little while ago. I am trying to use up my scrap batting so the batting for this little quilt was thicker than I usually use for wall quilts. It turned out pretty good, though. It was fun quilting. Here is a closeup of the tulips. Of course, it wouldn't be one of my projects without showing the back.(grin) Doesn't this make you think of spring?
I had my fabric all folded and put away, then decided to see how many projects that I have started, but not finished. I found 6 bins with started projects and that is just the ones that were easy to get to. So now I have them all drug out. I have 3 baby quilts started (not counting the panel Milah sent me) and some table runners and a couple of large quilts. These bins are stacked up around my ironing board, so it is a tight fit, but if I don't leave them in my way I won't get them finished. (grin) I started on K's beagle quilt. I have the center square fused on, but have to do the embroidery on it yet. I think I am going to do a hand blanket stitch around the pieces. I also started on the borders. I am doing a different border than I have ever done before. I tried using templates. Do you draw around them or what? Didn't like that. So then I tried rotary cutting them, but it was an odd angle and let's just say I didn't have enough patience. So I am paper piecing these borders. The whole quilt will only be abut 30" square, so not alot of paper piecing, but I cringe with each piece because it wastes so much fabric. (sigh) Here is the center square. I think it will look better once I have the embroidery done on it. I think my dh will love it. I have half of the paper piecing done, only 12 more blocks to go. I hope to get the main quilt together tomorrow, then I can start working on the quilting next week while dh is at work. I just heard on the tv that winter is coming back. Not sure what that means, but hoping it doesn't mean snow. I am all prepped and ready for spring. LOL We got the wheel bearing put back in the pickup, so both vehicles are now in working order again. I am so blessed to be married to a mechanical man. He has saved us so much money over the years. When I say 'we', you of course know that I really mean dh. LOL I am just the 'go-for', but it saves him time and steps. Next on the list of repairs, is our Troy tiller. For some reason it won't start. Dh doesn't seem to think it is serious, so I am sure he will get it fixed in time for my spring planting.
I guess that is it for today. I hope to be back on the ball again with my blog, because I really do enjoy writing it. I do want to send out some hugs and get well wishes for Ashton and Ava. They have been sick with a nasty flu bug for the past week. Sure hope you both feel better real soon. Grandma and Grandpa are sending you lots of love.
Everyone have a great evening. Thanks for visiting and thank you to everyone who asked about my tooth problems and/or said a prayer for me. I appreciated all of it. Please visit again.

Some finishes and some bags.

I haven't blogged in several days. The tooth getting pulled has kind of kicked my behind. It is so sore that I can hardly eat. I am still mainly eating soup, jello, and pudding. My dentist warned me that this would be a painful healing since the root of my tooth had a knot on the end of it. He was right. I am now wondering if I should have taken him up on his offer of pain meds. Oh well, it has been 5 days now. Surely I am over the worst of it. So much for my low carb eating. I have been afraid to even get on the scales. When you are living on soups, it is hard to eat low carb. Oh well, I will deal with the diet when I feel better. (grin)

I sewed the binding on the cat quilt and now I am working on the tulip quilt. It has been lots of fun so far. I still have better than half of the Savannah Star to quilt, but I'll get back to it. Here is the finished Cat Quilt.
I really like the way this little quilt turned out. Since it is all machine quilted, I won't show you a picture of the back. While trying to take it easy, I have been going through some UFO's. I found this table topper that I machine quilted and just wasn't pleased with, so I put it away. I decided to do some hand quilting on it and finish it up. I call this table topper 'Midnight Rainbow'.
Here is a closeup of the little bit of hand quilting that I did on this project. I did this in 4 spots. It will actually make a cute table topper for a round table.
The fabric is actually much brighter than the picture shows. I just wish I had hand quilted the project, but it is finished. Here is the back. This weekend was so cold. The wind was really blowing and it was 3* when we got up on Saturday morning. I think it warmed up to about 25*, but the wind sure didn't make it feel like that. My dh and I took the truck and went to town. He needed more parts for the car, to get some cutting torch gas, and I needed groceries. We got everything we needed and started home. We were about 1 mile away from home (God is so good. This could have happened on I-29!)when the truck started making a funny noise. My dh drove really slow so we could get home. Can you believe it, the wheel bearing went out on the front driver's side? So this meant that we now had no way to go anywhere. Dh was determined to get the car fixed or he would have no way to get to work today. He worked hard most of yesterday and finally got the car fixed. I helped a little, but he kept sending me back into the house. He knew I wasn't feeling well. So the car is on the road, but the pickup is down. He is picking up the bearings today and will work on the truck this week. I am so tired of things breaking down around here, but I guess that is life. (sigh)
Since I was basically in the house by myself all weekend, I decided to make a little bag. I am very pleased with the way it turned out. I started out with a pattern, but soon discarded it for my own ideas. I think it turned out cute. The outside is made from a charm pack. The oringinal pattern didn't have any pockets, but I love pockets, so I put pockets inside of it. I am debating on whether to fix a little strap over the top of it for a fastener. I could make a tiny strap of fabric and sew a shank button on the opposite side. I think that would work ok. It was supposed to have a zipper, but I didn't want to put one in it. Here is a picture of the inside. See my pockets?
I plan to make some more of these, but will tweak it some more. I may also make some a little bigger. I decided to try another bag this morning. I don't like this bag, so doubt that I will make another one. It is from a pattern I found online. I pretty much followed directions, but didn't like the way it went together. I also added an outside pocket and appliqued a bird onto the front of it. There is a pocket on the inside and one on the outside. It is pretty little. I think it is about 6"X6 1/2" and 3 inches deep.
It is warmer today. I keep hoping spring is here. I guess I just need to be patient. LOL I want to work some more on the tulip quilt tonight. I have been in the bag making mood the past few days. I just may try another bag when I get off here. I have some ideas buzzing around in my head. My dh laughed at me yesterday afternoon. I was playing aroung on my EQ6 and have come up with so many projects that I want to do. I just kept printing templates out. He asked me when I was going to quit planning and start doing. LOL If I just didn't have to sleep! LOL I hope you all have a great day. Thank you for visiting and please come again.

Happy Birthday Isaiah!

Today is our oldest son's 24th birthday. Where does the time go? Seems like just yesterday he was following his dad around like a little shadow. Now he is a grown man. I thought I'd share a few pictures of him with you. Of course these are only the past few years, since I have had a digital camera. Also, some of the pictures aren't great. I don't take great pictures, but I enjoy looking at them anyway. LOL Here he is back in 2006 on his motorcycle. I like this picture.
I didn't seem to have any decent pictures in 2007 of him. Here are a couple of pictures from Easter of last year. He is wrestling with his two nephews, Ashton and Noah. Here is a closeup shot. Doesn't he look happy for me to have the camera in his face? LOL His face is red because we had been outside watching the kids hunt eggs and it was windy and cold.
Here he is last summer behind his car. Sure wish everything was that green right now.

Here he is holding his niece, Ava. He was in the process of sitting when I got this picture. I told you I'm not a photographer. And last, but not least, this was taken at Christmas. He is holding his other niece, Izabella. Isaiah loves his nieces and nephews and they love him. Happy birthday, son. I hope you have a wonderful day! Your father and I are proud of the man you have become!
I went to the dentist yesterday and had the bad tooth pulled. This was a new dentist and he is a good one and a believer. I walked in with some Bible verses on a little piece of paper to comfort me. He thought that was neat. He started talking to me about gardening and soon I had relaxed. He got the tooth out without hurting me. That was a first as I have a very small mouth. (No laughing about that last statement, kids. LOL) Anyway, my appointment was at 7:30. We were back home by 9 a.m. I even filled out lots of paperwork in that time period. I was probably only in the chair 20-30 minutes. So it was not bad at all. Nothing like I had feared. I know this was God's doing. I prayed yesterday morning for this to be a quick and painless as possible procedure. God answered my prayers. Thank you, Father! And thank you to any of you who prayed for me.

Now on to some quilty goodness. I finally put together the star quilt along of Amanda Jean's that I did last year. I still need to add the borders, but it is already huge. It was hard to get a picture of it. I tried on the bed, but that wasn't too great. So I had dh hold it up for me. That wasn't much better. This is going to be a large quilt. Not sure how I will handle quilting this one in my lap. I may have to set my frames back up. I had trouble quilting twin size quilts in my lap. LOL I am not sure yet what I will do for the borders. I really love all of these star blocks. Thank you Amanda Jean for all the hard work you put in to doing this quilt along. I know I am months behind, but at least I now have a top.
That is it for today. I am supposed to be taking it easy for a few days. (My dentist said a couple of days, but dh says several days.) I am prone to get dry sockets from tooth extractions. I have already had 2 of them, so I don't want to do anything to dislodge the clot. Those dry sockets are not fun. Makes a regular old toothache seem like a walk in the park. LOL I am feeling pretty good today. My jaw just feels like someone slugged me, LOL but no real pain. I made myself quilt a whole hoop on the Savannah Star last night, then began the tulip quilt. It has been fun. I used leftover batting, so it is thicker than I would normally use on such a small quilt, but the quilting really shows up. (grin) I am off to sit in my rocker and quilt the day away. I could get used to this. LOL Thank you for visiting and please come again.

A Slow Tuesday

I never did make it to JoAnn's. I guess you could say that was my dh's Valentine gift. LOL I didn't make him drive me through all the traffic in his old truck. It has a clutch, so kind of difficult in heavy traffic. I told him I would catch their next sale. Not like they never have them. LOL We went to a local deli and I got some chicken tenders and mozzarella sticks (oh my, those mozzarella sticks are so yummy!) and dh got some chicken gizzards. We were both quite content. He left the decision on going to Ryan's up to me. I decided I would overeat there. I know the deli stuff wasn't real healthy, but sure was good. We spent most of the rest of the weekend working on the car. I am the 'go-for'. Dh hopes to have it back on the road by this weekend.

I decided to do a fun project on Sunday evening, so I whipped this up.
I basically took a couple of different quilt patterns, mixed them, and changed a few things to come up with this. I have the binding sewn on ready to handsew on the back. I plan to do that this evening. Look at this picture. The cat quilt is hanging over my machine and if you look right over the top of it, you will see Callie's nose. I didn't even realize she was back there till I was looking at my pictures. I think it is cute. I have been busy the past couple of days. I decided yesterday that I wanted to see my desk again. It was piled high with fabric in sacks that I hadn't folded and put away yet. I didn't take a picture of the mess. I really didn't want anyone seeing that, although it might have made me do better about organization. (grin) I spent over an hour folding fabric around my 6 inch wide ruler. Then I piled it all on my cutting mat. Can you believe all of this was on my desk?
In the back on the right, I have 2 stacks that have fabric of 2 yards or more . I have a couple of stacks of 1 yard pieces, a stack of 1 1/2 yard pieces, a stack of 1/2 yard pieces, a stack of 1/4 yard pieces, at least 3 stacks of fat quarters, and a jelly roll. Whew! The last thing I need is more fabric. I also have at least 5 bins of scraps leftover from previous projects. I really need to make some scrappy projects. I had to clean some stuff off my shelves to make room for all of this fabric. So I worked hard yesterday, but dh noticed and commented on how nice things were looking. (grin)

I also got the quilting lines drawn on the tulip quilt and have it sandwiched. It is ready to quilt, but I am trying to hold off till I get the Savannah Star done. Not sure if I will make it though. This one just looks like it will be so much fun to hand quilt. When I do small quilts, I usually just use pins to baste the layers together.
Doesn't this look like fun to quilt? I have lots of handwork ready. Tomorrow I have to go to the dentist to have a tooth pulled. So I know I will not be too energetic for a couple of days. I plan to just sit, watch tv, and quilt for the rest of the week. Not much more that I dread than going to the dentist, but I don't particularly like pain either. I will just be glad when tomorrow is over.

Look how my sweet potato has grown. I should be able to start pinching the slips off soon. I started this on Feb. 1st, so it has really taken off. The other one has not done as well, but it is growing too.

Tonight is the Biggest Loser. So I will be sitting in my rocker, quilting away, while watching tv. I only lost 1 pound last week. The deli stop might have contributed to this, but it was good! LOL I hope to do better at my next weigh in. My goal was to lose 10 lbs in Feb. So far I have lost 9, so I am happy. I think I will go watch the rest of Judge Judy. Thank you for visiting and please come again. If you think about it, I would sure appreciate prayers for me to be brave tomorrow.

Listen to Your Inner Voice

In some ways today was a really bad day, but in others it was good. Does that confuse you? Just listen to the story of my day. Today was the first day of JoAnn's President's Day sale. I posted about wanting to go so I could stock up on Guterman thread. I went to bed last night, thinking that really there was no need for a special trip to town just for thread. After all, I have at least 5 more spools of it. (grin) I even got up this morning still thinking this. By 8 o'clock I had talked myself into going, even though a little voice inside me kept saying not to go. We had a snow storm coming it. I figured I'd run to town, stop by Wal Mart, then JoAnn's and be home by about 10:30. I got on I-29 and the car started to vibrate some. I just figured it was mud since dh had driven it in some mud the day before, but I slowed down anyway. I made my stop at Wal Mart and got the few things I figured I couldn't live without in case we were snowed in this weekend.(grin) As I came out of Wal Mart, I noticed it was really starting to snow, but it wasn't sticking, so I planned to hurry down to JoAnn's and then get back home. I stopped at the light coming from WM and made my left hand turn, even got into the left lane as JoAnn's is on the lefthand side of the road. I had only gone about 10 feet when I heard this horrible racket. It sounded like something dragging. I am in the left lane and traffic is steady in the right lane, so I pull over into a wide space between the two directions of traffic. I know this is not how you are supposed to pull off of the road, but I wasn't sure I could get over to the righthand side. I sure didn't want to be stranded in the middle of the road. I had no more than put the car in park, when a sheriff's deputy pulled up to ask if I was all right. I told him that I was having car trouble, but had a cell phone, so I would call my dh to come help me. He then went on. I called dh. He asked if I could go backwards, so I tried a little. Still the horrible noise. By this time a highway patrolman had stopped to help. He wanted me to come with him to their office so I would stay warm. (I guess I looked helpless. LOL) I declined, because I thought my dh was coming to help me. He gave me his number and went on. By this time, I had talked to dh numerous times and tried to get hold of Isaiah. Then two city police cars pulled up, one beside me and one behind. I do not like being the center of attention so I am starting to get kind of embarrassed. (sigh) I was on a busy road with, now, 4 different law enforcement cars stopping with lights flashing. Everyone was slowing and looking at me. I am sure they thought I was some sort of hardened criminal. LOL One of the police officers got out and looked under the car. He said the leaf spring (don't really know what he was talking about) was broken and dragging. No way the car could be driven. The cell was ringing as he was telling me this. It was dh saying that the battery in our pickup was dead. He had the chargers on, but it would be a while before he could get there. He called work and took a vacation day, cause I would not have been happy if he had gone on to work and left me sitting along the road. (another sigh) The officers tell me it must be towed and they will stay with me till it is off the road. I have no idea who to call. One of them was nice enough to suggest a towing company. (He said he couldn't recommend anyone, but if it was his car he would call ---, so I told him to go ahead. The plan was to tow it one block into Ryan's parking lot. I called Ryan's and they said it would be fine to leave it there for a day or so. This was going to cost $50. Luckily I had that much on me. Then K calls me and says to find out how much more it would cost to tow it home. We were quoted $125, so we decided to just have it brought home. The tow guy shows up with a flatbed hauler. (I guess that is what it is called. First time I had ever had to be towed.) It was a young man, named Steven. He told me to hop up in his truck. (I guess I will add here, that I was wearing a skirt and the wind was gusting. It was all I could do to keep it down where it belonged. I really didn't want to moon everyone who was driving by! LOL) I was like a little kid watching the whole process. We got it loaded and headed for home.

Steven and I visited the whole way. He was such a nice young man. We were almost home when he grinned at me and told me he had forgotten to take the mileage. He said he was going to call it 20 miles. I know it was a little more than that. Steven's dad owns the company, so I figured he could do what he wants. We got home and got it unhooked. K asked him how much he owed him. Steven said $85. My dh told him that wasn't enough, but Steven wouldn't take any more than that. What a nice and considerate young man he was!

So that was our day. It was rough, but also some good things in it. If I had listened to my inner voice, I would not have gone to town this morning. But this could have happened to me or dh while we were driving much faster on I-29. So I feel like the Lord was protecting me, even though I wasn't listening to His warning. Another good thing, we met a very nice young man who did a good deed. I know he gave us a big discount. Kevin finally got the battery charged on the pickup. Isaiah called. He was so sorry. He had gone outside to work on his pickup at 9 this morning and didn't take his cell. He was afraid it would get broken. I reassured him that I was fine. He and his dad had a long conversation on the phone. (Something that hasn't happened in quite a while.) I never did make it to JoAnn's. See, I really wasn't supposed to go there today. (grin)

Enough of my sob story. (Carolyn, Cathryn, and Hazel, if you are reading this, no laughing at your mama!LOL) Yesterday I decided to just work on a fun quilt. I drug my Thimbleberries books out and picked one called Tulip Patches. (Any Thimbleberries pattern is always fun for me. I love Lynette Jensen's designs!) This was so much fun, but any time I work on pattern pieces that are reversed, I always have trouble. This is how each block is supposed to look.
I made one block, then chain pieced the other eight. This is how the leaf section turned out on every one of those 8. See my trusty little ripper. It got a good workout. LOL
I had to rip 2 seams from each of the 8 leaf parts, but I got them turned right.Didn't this turn out cute. I didn't follow the pattern exactly and went my own way with colors, but I just love this one.

Here are a few more pictures of it. I didn't have my camera with me today, so no interesting pictures of policemen or tow drivers. LOL So you just get the tulip quilt.
Of course, Aeris had to give it her seal of approval. LOL Callie was laying on another one of my quilts or she would have been right there. She was curled up beside my sewing machine throughout much of the work on this. I used about a 1/3 of a yard of fabric for the background and 5 fat quarters for this little quilt. All of it came out of my stash. It is about 28"X26". I think it looks like spring. I needed that since it is snowing outside right now. LOL It would have sewed up quickly if I hadn't sewed the leaves wrong, making for lots of ripping.
I guess this is it for tonight. I think dh feels sorry for the day I had. He told me that if we aren't snowed in, in the morning, he will take me out to eat at Ryan's (my all time favorite place to eat) for Valentine's day. He said we may even make it down to JoAnn's. I am not pushing for that! Everyone have a happy Valentine's Day tomorrow. If you stayed with me for this long, thank you so much. Please come back. This is not a normal day for me. LOL

A Visit and Redwork Projects

I didn't get to blog yesterday. Did you notice? LOL I usually do this during the late afternoon. Yesterday, our almost 24 year old son, Isaiah, came by to visit his mama. He had gotten a 'new to him' pickup and wanted to show me. It was so good to see him. We sat and visited for a couple of hours. I hadn't seen him since Christmas, so we had a lot of catching up to do. It is always great to see one of the kids.
This was taken last year on my birthday. I forgot to take a picture of him or his truck. Still getting used to this blogging thing. LOL Not sure why he has the funny expression on his face. Guess he was humoring his mama with a picture. (grin)

I have been busy working on the Savannah Star quilt. I have about 1/4 of it quilted. I also did a little bit on the beagle quilt. Not sure where I want to go with the rest of the blocks, so I am taking it slow. I'll know when I have the right design. I still have almost 3 months till I need it. Plenty of time. Since I don't have much current to show, I thought I would show some old projects again. Can you believe that I just started learning to embroider last year? That's right. I could cross stitch. I have been doing that for over 20 years, but not any of the other stitches. I decided I wanted to learn. So I went online and found some free patterns, and also found tutorials on the stitches. This is my first redwork project. I decided that if I was going to be doing some embroidery projects (cause I really loved doing this) that I needed to be able to make something out of them. I decided to just start adding borders till I had a little wall quilt. Simple is good, right? I just added simple borders around the picture and used 4 patches for the corners. This has gone to live with a very sweet friend. I decided to do my second redwork project in blue. (grin) For this cute little picture (By the way, can you tell that I just fell in love with primitive work?) I decided to start putting strips around it, log cabin style. Sorry I can't remember where online I found these free patterns so I can give credit to the very talented lady who drew them. This little quilt has gone to live with another sweet friend. I had fun making it.
I even remembered to take a picture of the back of this little quilt. I forgot to take one of the Bless This Home quilt's back. I had this sunflower fabric left over from an apron I had made. I thought it made a cute backing, although you can't see the quilting very good. I seem to pick busy fabrics for my backings on small quilts.
It is nice out today, but they are calling for snow to move in tomorrow. Not sure how much yet. They keep changing their minds. Whatever we get shouldn't last long, since it is supposed to be above freezing next week. I had planned to hit the President's Day sale at JoAnn's, but no biggy if I can't go. I had just planned to buy some more Guterman hand quilting thread. I love that stuff. Thanks Bren. I still have several spools on hand, but when it is 50% off, I like to stock up. (grin) I plan to work some more on the Savannah Star and maybe the beagle quilt. I think I will play around a little bit this afternoon on EQ6. K bought it for me for Mother's Day last year. I still have a lot to learn about this program, but love what all it can do. Since Valentine's day is only a couple of days away, I have been flirting with the idea of making a small heart quilt. LOL Just what I need, another project started.
I hope you all have a wonderful day. Thank you for visiting and please come again.
