Design Wall Monday



Happy Heart Day!

Sometimes I get a hair brained idea and must act on it immediately! That's what I did with this little wall hanging. While shopping at JoAnn's the other day, I saw a little wall hanging for sale with the Valentine's Day stuff. There was no way I was paying that price-whatever it was, it was ridiculous for the quality of that little thing! So I came home, drew it out and came up with this. I am going to sit down this morning and finish it so we will have a Heart Day decoration today.

A few more short rows have been sewn together on Circle Of Friends but it isn't as far as I had planned. I thought the weekend would be full of rainy weekend sewing but it didn't rain that much. Saturday we went shopping for a smoker like Judy L and CJ have recommended. We bought one and tried it out. This morning Ernie wonders if it was a mistake (it was not!) as he is sampling the pulled pork that his sandwich was made out of. He's afraid he might have to take up jogging!

Visit Judy L and see what she is working on and then visit with others in Blogland to see their projects. I love Monday!

LUV the Heart quilt-way to go doing it on your own!
I got one of those pannini sandwich presses and after making a couple "to die for" lunches realized this was a BAD,BAD thing to have in the house.

Isn't it amazing how much you pay for convenience?

Way to go...doing it yourself.

Love your Heart Day decoration (or as my teenage son labeled Valentines as 'Single Awareness Day'). You are very talented in being able to go home and draw up the design, I would forget what it looked like by the time I got to my car. I guess I could pull out my camera/phone and take a picture.
Also love your Circle of Friends what a great idea!

Judy has so many wonderful food ideas...I feel for Ernie! Sometimes I think I have to stop looking at her blog because it makes me hungry!

Very fun heart piece - you see things and think - oh I could do that, but most of us don't. So bravo to you! Happy Valentine's day.
