MORE AND A BIT OF SADNESS--

On a good note--
got some more work done--
the 4 Valentine heart blocks that I found last week--
are now sewn into a small wall hanging--
and it also has a backing and  batting--
and the binding is all made--
next step it to baste it for quilting--
and talking about hand quilting--
this is my 'favorite' quilting tape--
I have searched and searched for more of this brand
as it sticks to the fabric of your quilts well and you can move it and it will restick--
a couple times-
finally found it on Amazon--it was $6 plus $3.50 for shipping--
well worth it for me--after all the hunting I have done for it--
now they make a smaller package--but they wanted more--
yep more in shipping for the smaller package-soooo!!!!!!!

I also got the back and batting cut for--
the reindeer quilt--
but it has to wait a bit before I can work on it--

&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

also in the mail today--
I got a surprise package--
some fun reading from my friend Anne, in NY--thanks Anne!!!




I have started stitching on this project earlier today for a bit--
got the wagon in and the carrots in the wagon--
then changed my mind on the color of the eggs and the wheel to the  cart--
what can I say--!!!!!!



Now for the sad part--
Mr. Bubbles, my betta fish has decided to swim in the river that the Rainbow bridge flows over--
he had been sick for a few days and I tried everything to heal him--but guess it was his time!


Enjoy your moments today--di

  4. Oh how sad! I am sorry. But that Easter quilt is going to be something. Do you have a pattern for that or are you designing this yourself.
