I thought about working on finishing that little Valentine's Day quilt I started last year but you know how it goes . . . Sometimes I work feverishly on several projects at once, make the tops and then put them away and nothing gets done, LOL. I remember that some of you actually made this quilt. Let's just say you are doing way better than I am - See the post from last year with directions to make the blocks.
I took it out this morning. Yep - it's still cute. I really should finish it . . .
Well, at least I got it layered and ready to quilt. Now that I look at it again I really, really want to finsh it but I have lunch plans with friends today and dinner later with my honey. I know if I put it aside it will still be unfinished this time next year.
Or maybe I should work on this one instead - Gotta finish 'em all!
My new Sewline quilt marking pen arrived. I waited until today to show it to you because it's - RED, LOL. Friends in Iowa told me about this pencil with ceramic lead and I can't wait to try it. Apparently it's not new and many of you use it too. I'm always a little behind on the gadgets thing . . . I bought the one with white lead but I hear there are other colors too. Supposedly it washes out after you quilt your quilt.
So far it seems to work . . . I'll let you know if I actually finish a quilt, LOL.
My stencil collection, ready and waiting.

On a sad note - This has always been one of my favorite songs. Last night I caught some of the movie on TV, which I hadn't seen in years. Listening to the song this time really brought tears to my eyes.
Happy Valentine's Day!
