Moving Right Along............

"Here is the test to find whether your mission on Earth is finished: if you're alive, it isn't."     -Alice Roosevelt Longworth  

I have been burning the midnight oil with all my quilting projects since my giveaway last week......and by the way.........Naomi, your package is on it's way!  First of all, I am done with my Name Game Swap project from Samelia's Mum's Blogsite.  I promised my sister at Hilachas that I would wait til she gets back from her trip to send it to my secret swap partner so I am going to give you all a little peek at it........(I had to cover up the name in case anyone else peeks too.)  I bought myself a pair of Fons&Porter grip gloves and REMEMBERED to cover the feed dogs on my sewing machine and the FMQ actually went a little better this time....

And I also finished 3 blocks to enter in the BlockLotto.  This month we are supposed to do any heart block we wish as long as we use ONLY certain color tones, ie, pink, orange, gray, or cream.........colors of the sunset.  I was a little sad that the color red wasn't included but there are really many shades of orange and pink that are quite nice.....and as long as the predominent color is one of the above, we can have splashes of other colors...........so anyway, here are the blocks I've made so far............


   I am still having a little trouble getting back into my JustTakes2 Quilt Along.  I still need to finish 3 more from January.  The good thing is that the ladies from Sentimental Stitches and Dear Jane, who are the administrators of JustTakes2 must have "felt my pain" because they only gave us 2 blocks to make at the beginning of February........so now that I am caught up with my other projects it is time to dig in my heels and get back to JustTakes2!
There is a nice giveaway for two winners at Lili Pad Quilting. The winners will receive 3 charm packs and a 550 yard spool of Superior So Fine 50 wt. thread.  Giveaway ends Feb. 5th so go check it out and see if you can be one of the lucky winners!  
EGAD!! It is after 1:00 in the morning!  Time to get my beauty rest.......good thing I am off work tomorrow.......TTFN........

I like your hearts. You made that orange really "rock.". I wonder if your print will work under the specifications :) jaja
