Playing Around

I spent yesterday during nap time playing around with a new tool I got from Fat Quarter Shop and something new and fun was born.  Here is a scrappy peak of what I made:

I have decided to hand quilt the project – it will be my first attempt at hand quilting – I will start tonight during Project Runway (guilty pleasure).  Jenna from SewHappyGeek was kind enough to help me on Twitter yesterday, she sent me a couple of tutorials and also told me what supplies I was going to need.

I picked up some perle cotton number 8 in a beautiful red, some needles and a frame. I figured I needed to try hand quilting with and without a frame of some sort to see what worked for me so I picked up a cheapy little plastic frame. We shall see!

While Anne and I were out shopping I decided to pick up some more art projects for her – so we decided to make Valentine’s for our family and friends. I am sure her Grandparents will love them when we send them off at the beginning of next month – what do you think of them?

Today is my Friday, my hubs has Friday and Monday off and I want to spend some quality time with him and Anne – so I will be back on Tuesday!  I hope you all have a great weekend, take a moment and reflect on the holiday we celebrate – Martin Luther King Jr.

How will you be spending the weekend? Is it a long one for you too?

UPDATE! I just remembered I will be here on Monday…I have a very special fun giveaway for you! Make sure you come by and check it out!
