Well, I'm at work so I can't pull up any pictures to post but I can do that when I get home later. I'm making much needed quilts for the nursery here at church. I've got about 14 or more ready to quilt and just finished the second one. So hopefully this week end I'll be able to quilt several and then I can sit back and stitch the binding on when I'm here. (In between work that is.) When I get home today I'll try to remember to take some pictures, thinking of it and doing it are two different things. I think about it here but when I get home I tend to forget, so I just wrote myself a little note.
I'm also on a Yahoo group that has been making hearts to swap. What we do is, each month everyone makes one heart and then there is a name drawn to see who gets them that month. Of course then that name is taken out of the drawing and she draws the next winner. This month Rose Anne won the hearts so she will pick next months winner. Pretty cool huh? We're going to do a second round of it, so we'll all have enough to make a wall hanging or something we'd like to do with them.
Ok, it's back to work, so I've written myself a note to take pictures when I get home.
Have a great day and a great week end!

I've been quilting and I have two quilts. No, make that three. One is a Christmas Quilt, the other is a Halloween Quilt and the third is one made of primary color blocks when my 18 year old grandson was born. I haven't kept any for myself. Well, I LOVE pink and I started out making this pink quilt for myself as a comfort quilt, but it kind of kept growing and growing and growing. Now it needs to grow two more borders, A two inch and a three inch. lol So I pulled some pink out of my stash and I'll try and get those on this week. THEN I will put it in line to quilt it. I'm quilting a "HUGS" quilt, and then I have some children's quilts to do first, then I can do this one for my bedroom. So we'll start the spring off with a pretty pink quilt on our bed. Thank goodness I have an easy going sweetheart of a husband. Have a great week everyone.
