VT Heart

This was such a fun, easy stitch. I was looking for a Floral Heart to do for the Virginia Tech Quilt and someone designed this for me to do. I love the colors and it was quick piece only taking about 10 hours altogether.

Thank you for your comments to Gather at the River. I'm not sure why I didn't enjoy it except it just didn't click with me, and I kept thinking of all the other pieces I had to do. Plus I'm not sure it's going to go on the quilt so I felt like I was wasting my time. There is another piece I want to do and sent that along with this piece.

Well we survived the last couple of weeks. The move is done, the moving sale is over. What didn't sale is going to the Teens for their yard sale. My dad and Pastor Nate are going through it today. What doesn't go there will probably just get thrown out. Dad rented a dumpster for a week. We should have charged for the stuff we put in the dumpster, people were always going through that and finding things they wanted, especially metal. Oh well. I was dreading the yard sell but it really turned out to be a lot of fun and our parents made out better than I expected. My mom got me The Prince and Me DVD for working at it, even though she didn't have to. I had part 2 and was looking for the first movie, she found it. I really enjoyed it. I never got into videos but I'm sure getting into DVD's.

Someone told us about Suduko site being on line. I love doing those puzzles, so I've spent a few hours on that site yesterday and this morning. Now my poor cat will never get any attention, no one will ever get through to me when they call, and I won't get any stitching or housework done. I'll be at that site! Just what I needed another site to go to!

Well, speaking of stitching and housework, think I'll go do some. Until next time. Happy Stitching!

Okay, I go away for a few days and I come back to see ANOTHER finished project ;o) It truly is beautiful Barb and will add very nicely to the quilt. That is a very thoughtful design by the designer and well done by the stitcher :o)

It turned out lovely and will look great on the quilt. I've tried Sudoku a couple of times, but other than the super easy ones I just can't get into it, all I get is frustrated. Glad you found a fun site that will give you plenty to work on. However, be sure to balance it with more of your lovely stitching. :)
