Happy Valentines Day!

I am the luckiest girl this Valentine Day. Look at the surprise I found in my mailbox this past week. Carrie made me a special card and a Valentine Lavender Sachet. It is so adorable!! She also sent me a fat quarter and some chocolate. YUM! Thank you so much Carrie! You are the best!! You can head over to Carrie's blog and enter to win one of these special gifts.
I managed to finish my "Civil War Chronicles" blocks for February. These took a LOT of time. They measure 16 1/2" each.
I finished another "Baltimore Bunny" block too.
On my lunch hour I managed to get another 10 klosjes done. These are really the perfect portable project.
On to "Sylvia's Bridal Sampler". I am supposed to get 5 done this month. I managed to get 4 done this morning and I prepped the 5th one to do by hand. I am hoping to get the hand one done this week and add it to the others to finish another row. You can see my progress by clicking on the Frog on the upper right corner of my Blog.



That's all for this week. The month is about half gone and I am about half into my to-do list. Yay!

I hope everyone had a Happy Valentines Day. Be sure to have a safe, healthy, happy, crafty week!

The Baltimore Bunny block is so sweet. I have drooled over the pattern but never did anything about owning one for myself.

Rocknquilts said...

Wow! You go, girl! You're putting out alot of beautiful work - so inspiring!!

Teresa said...

I feel like I'm watching fireworks while reading through your post and seeing the pictures...I'm saying "OOOO, aaahhhh, eeeeeeee!!" Love, Love the Baltimore Bunny (own the pattern - on my "to do" list), and your Civil War blocks look great. More Klosjes...awesome, and I love anything blue and yellow! I STILL have a fat quarter pack of April Cornell's blue and yellow "Sunshine" line from a few years back...just waiting for the right project. It's so inspiring to see how you are keeping up with all your quilt commitments!!

In stitches,
Teresa :o)

Not sure how I missed this post! Really like the Civil War blocks, wonderful design and 10 more klosjes! Very cute bunnies and I love the blue and yellow combo for the Bridal blocks. Looking forward to this weeks post.

What a cute heart! That Carrie P. is such a sweetheart. :)

You got a lot done this week! Those Civil War blocks look beautiful (and labor-intensive!). It is fun watching your SBS come together.
