I prepped and made a few hexie flowers... and then prepped and made some more this week. Now the decision - do I frame them all with yellow like I was planning or go with black, which I saw out in the land of blogs last week and really, really liked ...... Maybe yellow around them all and then black to link them together? Cream or another color? Maybe I'll just leave them and keep adding colors each month until I figure out what I am going to do with them.
Being Valentines Day... I just had to start/pull out a new project. Who could resist these pretty hearts? I had made a version of this quilt years ago for my niece Sarah. I have a bunch of print pastel fabrics cut out to make another .... lets see she is 14 so they have been waiting for about 13-14 years now. Poor baby fabrics. Time to play with them a bit I think. I'm going to use the pastel dots on the cream background for the background of this one.
I feel like Suzy homemaker (no, not cleaning the house Mom!). I have Greek Chicken baking in the oven, Greek salad prepped in the fridge (and the house reeks of garlic - I may have grated one too many cloves into the marinade).
I made a cheese ball for the hubby for Valentines Day (yup, real romantic here at my house - I prefer all the little things he does all year - like starting the van when he left for work so I had a nice warm car to take the kids to school this morning with no scraping of the frost off the windows). Sugar Cookie batter is chilling in the fridge to be made into hearts later this evening when the oven frees up.
I think I'll go cut out the background fabrics for the above project so I can sew up some little hearts the next time I get to play with the sewing machine on Sunday.
Head on over to SoScrappy on Saturday and see what other pink projects are being worked on.
