Happy Belated Valentine's Day!

I didn't quite reach my goal of finishing the heart wallhanging by Valentine's Day, but all I need to do is finish the binding. Here it is:

In the last post I described how I created the heart. I added a border in the same background white. I read through Tanya's instructions for free piecing letters, and decided to throw caution to the wind!

I'm happy with them, and the quilting. I decided to do perle 8 around the heart and a few random hearts around the letters. I have a new idea for attaching the back of the binding. I'll let you know if it works out.

Jaxon woke from his nap the other day to find cookies cooling on the counter. Oh, the temptation!

And here is what my valentine got me for Valentine's: bracelet from The Berry Patch and earrings from Tina Rice.

Cute wallhanging. I love the free piecing. I keep seeing it pop up and perhaps I'll give it a try.

Your valentine did a good job.

It won't be long until your boy can reach right up onto that bench and help himself - you'd better watch out!
