Hi everyone! I hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s Day and that you are all submitting a project into the Valentine’s Day Showcase! There are some great projects already up and some wonderful prizes up for grabs.
I have been busy sewing away the last 2 weeks…well really only the last week – the first week of February I was under the weather and just didn’t feel much like sewing. It was as though all my creative energy was sucked out of me by the cold – well…I’m back and in full force!
With a few of my twitter pals: Jenna (@SewHappyGeek), Bonnie (beeclef), Shanna (h2ogirl76) and about 800 other bloggers I have started to Swoon!
I decided to do only one block per month – I need a goal that I can easily accomplish – so here are my first two blocks. I am using Half Moon Modern – which I bought from the incomparable Julie from Intrepid Thread.
What do you think?!? I am really loving them so far. I have 7 more to make – I should hopefully finish all my blocks by the end of September if I stick to my schedule. Are you Swooning too? Here is a link to the pattern if you are interested in joining in on the fun!
Don’t forget to link up your Valentine’s Day projects!
Oh yeah, and while we didn’t do too much to celebrate yesterday – Anne became a baker! She baked brownies for her daddy (with a little help from me)!
Love your swoon blocks and your little baker is adorable too.
1. Both blocks are amazing! Can’t decide which one I like better. Happy Swooning. 🙂
2. Anne is super cute! Love the “apron dress”.
Your second swoon block is by far my favorite. I love the use of orange and gray! And little Miss Anne is so cute in her oversized apron! 🙂
Love your swoon blocks!! =)
Love the blocks! Half Moon Modern was an excellent fabric choice! And of course you know I think that baby in her mommy’s apron is just about the cutest thing ever! 🙂
Great looking blocks! I just might have to swoon after all!
Your blocks are marvelous…but your little baker steals the show! She’s adorable! Bet you both had a ball baking for her daddy!
Love the blocks, I think the whole thing is going to look fab in HMM. Giggling a little at the budding baker’s apron 😉
Your blocks look so good! It’s going to be a lovely quilt. And Anne looks so happy. Like she knows she’s gonna lick the spoon in a minute…
Nice blocks and Anne is simply adorable 🙂 Bet you two had a great time in the kitchen!
