Yea!! I'm in for this VQW. This is my goal
1. Learn to post pics
2. Finish 4 pillow slips
3. Spend 4 hrs rearranging my art quilt and attaching appliques

For this Valentines Day, several days ago I asked DH, "Where are you taking me for lunch on Valentines Day?" He stepped up and even bought me a card. We had a very nice lunch with nice conversation. Then he went to his swing shift job and I came home to sew.

Hopefully I'll be finishing the quilting of
DP9 patch for my younger daughter (that ages me! She'll be 50 in July).

Looks like everyone has had a productive Friday! I had a wonderful time working on my wool applique snowmen. We went out for lunch tonight (I brought leftovers home for DH). I started stitching down the applique on my last 12" block. Hopefully I will finish that tomorrow and get the three of them bound and hanging sleeves attached.

I will be working on 3 baby quilts for gifts and some Project Linus quilt tops if I have time/want a break.

I just picked up batting, backing and some additional fabric for sashing and binding. My last online fabric order arrived today , so I am eager to get started.

iceblossom, I love your colorful quilt. Are those your hand dyed fabrics?

Cam's mom, a beautiful job.

I didn't get far. Had an extra dog, but he's no problem. I have been baking for a fundraiser for the rescue I'm getting my next cat from. I hope this cat one works out better than the last one. 2 batches of banana bread (4 different flavors), a large batch of chocolate chip cookies (requested) and a batch of oatmeal/ currant/M&M cookies. Smells wonderful in here and I can't touch a thing. I had planned something gluten free, but not this time. I did cut and sew a few strips for the baby quilt - I lost my 1/4" seam - I haven't sewn in so long, so I'm already using the seam ripper.

You all are inspiring! I sewed a binding on o e side of my fall wall quilt so will hand sew the other side while we have visitors for the rest of the weekend. Sewing 1.5" strips then cutting groups of 4 and sewing to make the fronts of 'needle' books - Will add batting pages to the books for our club's pot luck lunch gift . Reds for half of them.

I took a trip to the fabric store today and bought the lining and outer fabric to make my daughter a diaper bag. I think I'll take a break from making blocks for the Circa 1880 quilt and start working on the diaper bag tomorrow. It's nice seeing what everyone is working on!

Irishrose, if you mean "my" hand dyes -- that is the bag of hand dyed fabric I got at the thrift store for $7.99 and then found that although prepped and dyed beautifully, they weren't set for quilting. Happens my car was in the shop, had two sensors one in the dash and one somewhere deep in the guts and I was at home for the better part of three weeks and during that time I boiled and set the fabric until it doesn't run any more.

It was a rather crazy and labor intensive thing to do, but I have enough fabric for two more quilts out of that bag and I don't need the bright bright colors for either of those projects!

sad news at our house tonight--the court decided that the adoption needed to be posted for 3 weeks and bumped the hearing to March 30---I'm not real impressed with my daughter-in-law's attorney! But we are going up still and plan to celebrate being together--as I told the DIL to tell our grandson--he's been our grandson since they got married 10 years ago!
