I making some more heart-in-hand Valentines. A couple of these are a little less sweet than the others. But let's face it, sometimes love isn't all lollipops and rainbows.
Speaking of rainbows, I'm making a scrappy quilt in my spare minutes. I can't promise I'll ever finish it (like the one in this very old post that periodically mocks me with its undone-ness to this day) but I'm gonna give it a valiant effort. I'm attempting to whittle down my fabric stash. I spent a good deal of yesterday making 2.5" x 16" strips, of which I'll need 6 for each block. And I manged to make quite a dent in the fabric pile! I thought I had SOOOOOO many strips, surely enough for two giant quilts, but really I only had enough for 16 blocks. *sigh* And I need 42 (or so) blocks. And my scrap piles is looking mighty puny. Now normally I would take this as a perfect opportunity to do a bit of fabric shopping, but we are planning a major down-sizing of our Cart Kingdom in a few months, so new fabric is not allowed. Luckily, some fabric-addict friends have taken pity on my odious lack of scrappiness and are sending in reinforcements (in the form of more scraps). Hooray!! (Seriously, I'm way too excited about the prospect of more fabric scraps.)
