Took the Block APART!

Today was a good day. I went to the Mt. St. Helen's quilt group. There I was able to get my block appliqued. The best part - I'm getting closer to getting these blocks done!

Still have a few more things to applique on here, plus do embroidery, but it's close to being done.

I came home early because we had an eye appointment. Then fixed supper. Phil called and said she would be here tonight, so I decided I would let him use my sewing machine to make a belt. We had a good time while he was here. I stayed down there with him working on the last block of the Affair of the Hearts.

I started out with one section, and ended up doing them all!

I used the freezer paper (for printers), and cut out the pieces. Then I picked what I wanted. I had them all done, then went and took all those pieces above out. YEP, I ripped, ripped and ripped them all out. Had to get all the threads out of the fabric. Picking all that is a major pain! So, now I can mark the block again, and start putting the pieces back on. I just hope I can get my hearts to work this time!

As you can see, I'm back to being Happy Quilting!

Okay, Think I'm Done With Cleaning!

This morning I got a call from Cherry that she didn't need me. So, I heated up the downstairs and went down to clean..... This is w...
