Does go 'pitter patter' when I stitch hearts
on anything--
and this month it has been having a field day
with stitching a heart each day!!!
Look at all these hearts--
31 days in the month of May--
and 31 hearts appliqued --one for each day--
I so enjoyed this sal--
Thank you--Deb at Happy to Be Scrappy--I had fun!!

And now for this one--

I have to say I worked hard this month to get this goal finished in time--
but there she is--in all her quilted glory--
my 1930's star pinwheel quilt--
I got to the binding part and was lost--had decided on a light solid blue fabric--
sewed it all on and then did not like it--was too light or something and there was no way
I taking it all off--
then realized that by turning the whole binding piece to the back--I had a nice finished look
on the front--so that is what I did!!!!!
I have total of '53' hours in just the hand quilting and binding on this one--
and all the stars where hand pieced--so this is a total hand made quilt--!!!
right now for probably the next month it is hanging in a place of honor on the wall--
but when it gets replaced with the next hand quilted quilt--it will make a nice table covering!!!

 Yesterday when on line checking out my bank statement--I noticed an odd charge--
it was only for $1.25--and listed CVS--well--I deal with CVS for my meds and had had a delivery on the 26th and charge that day  was for $2.25--but had not been there or had a delivery on Tues the 29th--so this morning I called CVS and talked to them--
come to find out the $1.25 was she gave me the phone # for them--but also stated that often times companies will do a tiny charge like this one--to be sure the card runs and then come payday and they withdraw alot more--
(oh and luckily I had printed out the page that stated this problem--)
cause when I went back into my account on line this morning--I couldn't find it--
but I was really nervous about this especially when I called the # given me
 and it only wanted to give me a cruise for $65 a person!!!
so I called my friend here and we jumped into the car and went straight to the bank--
where in--we stopped that debit card and got me a different one--
cause you see at midnight tonight--my direct deposits come in!!!
So watch those bank accounts--I am sure I dodged a big bullet here--
and so does the bank!!
Thanks for listening!!!
