A crazy quilt heart swap is being hosted by Crazy Quilting for Newbies with a mailing date of April 1.  Until today I teetered on whether or not to join in.  Getting the hearts constructed was my only hold up in deciding, and today I took a few minutes to put a couple of naked hearts together.  My March CQJP block is nearing completion so I’ll have plenty time to embellish these and get them in the mail on time. I might even make a couple more.

A few days ago I made a couple of fabric postcards.  This time I used Peltex, an extra stiff interfacing that is fusible on both sides.  It worked much better than the Pellon I used to make the first few I made.  I found centering and finishing them to be much easier with the Peltex. 

Friends really do make life blossom…this one went to a very special friend…she is a bright flower in my friendship garden.


This one was made for a faithful blog visitor who never fails to make me smile when she leaves a comment.  I hope it made her smile when she found it in her mailbox.100_4135

Thank you for visiting.  Your comments are always welcome.

Until next time…

Last night I completed my work on Nicki Lee’s All Things Pretty round robin block.  It is a six-inch block and part of a “do your block round robin” hosted by World Wide Crazy Quilting.  I love the colors Nicki Lee used which added to the pleasure of working on the block.  There are a couple of things I tried with this round robin that are new to me. I’ve never embellished a silkie (the picture in the center).  I laid aside my fear of messing it up and just did it.  All in all…what I did worked.  I also used the beaded fringe stitch for the first time.  The fringe gives the block a bit of a 1920’s flavor. 

Nicki Lee’s block…

Last month I went to my mailbox and found a delightful surprise when I looked inside.  My friend Pam sent me a cheerful, fabric postcard for Valentine’s Day.  It made me smile all the way back to the house.  I tried to post a picture last month, but WordPress did not cooperate.



Receiving Pam’s card inspired me to make one to send to her…it’s my first. 


That’s it for today…thank you for stopping by.  I hope you let me know you’ve been here, and do come again.

Until next time…

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.  Psalm 23:4
