Be Mine

This is the Valentine quilt I was working on. I ended up sewing it twice.  I didn't like how it was working out the first time around so I had to rip it out and redo my thinking go how to put it together.  It is an original, using up Valentine HST's I had left over from a quilt I made a few years ago.

My second scrappy basket quilt.  I decided I wanted one for my bed so I had to make it bigger, making more scrappy baskets.  It is completed and now I don't know if I want to keep it.  I can't really decide if I like it or not.  Time will tell, I don't have to make a decision until the fall when I donate quilts.
My computer died on me during the night.  I woke up this morning to nothing.  I was so frustrated.  I let my husband know so it wouldn't be a big surprise to him when he came home from work.  He worked on it and now I have a working computer again.  I am very happy he fixed it with a new power supply. I was concerned there would be many dollars going out for a new computer and then on top of that the decision of a desk top or lap top.  The selection at the store would lead me towards lap top as they had numerous lap tops and very few desk tops.  I guess that will be the next dinosaur in the electronic world, the desk top will be at thing of the past.  How quickly electronics come and go.

Well, I better be getting to bed.  I am off tomorrow but as anyone who works knows, your days off are always busier than your days at work.

I ordered a rotisserie and hope it arrives tomorrow.  I want to try a chicken or roast in it.  I am so excited to get it.  I know, little things excite me.  Maybe I need to get a life.

Good evening.

May God give hope and guidance to the people of Japan.

Ohh, I do love the Valentine quilt. I TRY to decorate for the holidays and it would be so fun to have seasonal quilts. I always like your scrap quilts and I think Scrappy Baskets is a great quilt. If you do decide to donate it - whoever gets it will be one lucky person! Cheers! Evelyn

Love both quilts! Any chance you can show how you made your pinwheel hearts?? I especially like the grouping of 4 hearts.
