Two More Sweet Hearts

Yesterday Sharon over at Lilabelle Lane posted her work so far on Best Friends Forever, a new Rosalie Quinlan stitchery and quilting pattern. I immediately loved it! I think this pattern is in my future.

But, it inspired me to get out the redwork project I do have, Sweet Hearts. Two more blocks are now finished:



That makes three of the nine done. As a tv-watching project, redwork makes a nice change from Texas Star, so maybe there will be one or two more soon. We'll see!

    1. Thanks, Rachael. Sometimes I think they are too kitschy for words, but somehow I always end up liking them anyway. :D

  3. monica sometimes a change is as good as a rest and in the summer it is great to have something portable so that you are able to view your garden while you stitch...they do look amazing glad you were able to pull it out again.

    1. Thanks, Debra. I totally agree, it's invigorating to change things up. Plus, I find that a project that has been "fallow" for a while feels fresh and easy when I pick it up again. Let's hope I get some mileage out of that!

    1. Thanks you! I've drafted 3 or 4 different quilt layouts for them now, but the final decision is still quite a ways off!

    1. I give my full attention to the face, but after that it's pretty forgiving, I find. I'm hoping to make some progress now!
