Happy Belated Valentine's Day

Hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day! Bob and I went out to dinner and to the Hartford Symphony to hear Beethoven's 3rd "Eroica". It was a wonderful night out.

I finished my Flower Power quilt just in time for Valentine's Day and have it hanging in my hallway. Don't know why I didn't finish it sooner. All it needed was a bit of quilting, the binding and the sleeve ( which were both done!) This is the first deletion from my Pigs in the Poke list. I hope to have the Round the World wallhanging finished early next week. This is another one that needed just a bit of quilting, binding and sleeve.

I got together with my Friday quilting gals this past Friday. We haven't done it in sooo long and are trying to get back in the swing. I made super progress on the summer tote bags that are on my list. Again, a super easy project that got stalled. Hmmm, I guess I am easily distracted! I have to say that these projects were done in duplicate or triplicate. I made the Round the World for a swap and liked it enough to make one for myself. Guess I just didn't have the steam needed to finish it. Ditto for the bags. But now, I will have one for me and an extra for a quick quilty gift when I need it.

At our last guild meeting, we had our annual Teacup Raffle. I'm not sure where the name came from but basically we all bring gently used magazines, patterns, books, tools, fabric etc that we don't want and then we sell tickets hoping to win someone else's stuff. My DH thinks we are out of our minds but we have a wonderful time and raise a little cash.

I stuffed one particular teacup with all of my tickets and won!! Here it is a pile of wool just waiting to be felted. There has to be at least 5 yards of it! That will hit the washing machine this week.

Wonderful, cheerful Hearts & Flowers wallhanging! Perfect for this time of year --or anytime of year, actually.

I bet it feels good to get some projects done!

Hi, Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier. In response to your question.... I have a longarm now, but a lot of the earlier work on my blog is quilted with my DSM. I think your flower power wall hanging is very sweet and in my favorite colors!

Your valentine day wall quilt says it ALL. That is one happy quilt. I like the loose style that just suggests the shapes.
