Happy Valentine's Day

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!
