Valentine Party day.....


UPDATE: 5:40 pm....Well, I didnt finish four projects, but I got two done and I am very pleased with them....the party for me is over, the sewing room looks like Hurricane Rita blew threw it and I am tired of Diet Coke.....Here are my two finished projects....the wallhanging.....


and the Teachers Valentine......


I am off to get ready for the rodeo and I will visit everyone's blogs when I get home later tonight....This little party was really fun and I look forward to meeting you all and seeing your wonderful Valentine creations......until then dont eat to much chocolate..........


UPDATE: 4:15
I finally gave in to the tireds and took a two hr nap....I was doing good, thinking I had lot's of time to finish all four projects...Well now it is feeling like Project Runway around here , as I am under the gun.....Don let me know that he has rodeo tickets for tonight at eight so that means I have two hours left to sew! Darn it! The Wall hanging is almost done and I am pretty sure I will finish the one Valentine....We will see....back to the projects! UPDATE:

Ok, it is about ten thirty and I have made some progress....I am working on two things right now...The first is a "Bee Mine" wall hanging...I didnt cut out anything ahead of time, but it is a really easy little project so I am doing fine.....here is a little peek of the bee all appliqued...


I also am going to make a really cute heart potholder and two fabric and paper sewn valentine hearts for a friends grandchildren to give to their teachers...Here is the start of one heart...

Gonna go see what everyone else is doing...........
POST #1
I am a terrible sleeper at night and usually about 5:00 am I am just starting to fall asleep, but here I am up and ready to sew......I have a couple little projects ready to go, lot's of hot tea and a can of diet coke and some chocolate to keep me going.....I will check in with some progress photos soon.......
