Happy Valentine's Day.... A Little Early

This little heart is a pattern I tested for Shelli at Needle in A Haystack.  I used some Moda I had in my stash and a decorative stitch on my machine with a pretty green rayon thread.  Found a butterfly button and a little crystal heart and voila!  I would love to make a row of these in different sizes/fabrics.  Not sure if I'll have time for this year, but there's always next year.

Shelli was kind enough to post my heart along with several others on her blog.  They are so cute!  There is also a picture of it on You Can Make This.  I am flattered Shelli, Thank You!

Happy Valentine's Day to you all :-)

Until Next Time,

Where has the Time Gone?

I've been keeping up with my blog reading, knowing I have to post on my own blog and thinking.. I'll get to it.  Well I just looked and it's been almost a month since my last post!  I was thinking it was just a couple of weeks.  I think about posting on my blog often.  Just not sure I have much to say.   Oh well, moving on.....

I have several projects going at once.  Big surprise.  I have jumped on Randi's Road to Spring Quilt-A-Long.  I decided to try this quilt with some batiks I had in my stash.

The wheat color in the background will be my solid.  I have all 100 batik cuts done and just have to finish cutting my solid squares, approximately 50 to go.  Cutting repetitive squares/rectangles is not my favorite part, but tonight I had a local radio station streaming through my computer.  Good mix, Lots of 80's stuff, very nostalgic for me.  Must be careful though dancing with a rotary cutter in my hand!  I was laughing at myself boogying to "Brick House" while I am here all by myself cutting.  Sure took the boredom out of the process!

Until Next Time,
