I participated in a Valentine swap on one of the yahoo groups that I am in, and boy, was I spoiled! Shelley sent me all these nice gifts: a tote bag, a scissor/needle case, heart pins and charms, a notebook, and chocolates! Thanks so much, Shelley! You are too sweet!
Here is what I sent to Shelley: a little Valentine block on an old-fashioned hanger, crocheted dish clothes, Valentines suckers and some heart ribbon... :o)
I only have FOUR blocks left to quilt on the Beachfront Cottage quilt! And then the border, but, hey, I am almost done! Woo Hoo!
I did finish putting the binding on this quilt over last weekend. I finished the quilt top last summer, right after the 4th of July, and had not liked how my triangles did not line up. So I added the rick-rack to the quilt top. But then the quilter at the LQS would not quilt it, because of the rick-rack. So I finally got it ready for a custom quilter that works thru the LQS and she got it back to me last week. It has stars and stipple down the strips, without messing up the rick-rack... :o) I love the old-fashioned patriotic fabric!
Thanks for visiting! I am hoping to have the quilting done of the Beachfront Cottage quilt this week. I am SO ready to be done with it and to move on to other projects... :o) Dear hubby has been at work for 24-hours straight, pushing snow, and the kids are home today, and probably tomorrow, because of the snow here. We got 4+ inches overnight, and today the wind has picked up so it is blowing around... Thank goodness for the Wii that we got for Christmas! :o)
