Valentine's Day Surprise....

My husband really out did himself this year. I have been wanting some of the EQ6 resource books for some time now, and hinting for Christmas, etc. Well he gave me all the books I wanted Friday night for Valentine's Day. I was so excited, and somewhat overwhelmed. So much information and where do I start???? Then, Saturday morning, he had these beautiful yellow roses and a card waiting on me at my computer, along with a cup of coffee. Now there's a man that knows me well!

Saturday was my club meeting, and Martha did a lesson on hand piecing. It was a relaxing meeting, with everyone doing their handpiecing and chatting and just enjoying the fellowship. An easy meeting to prepare for as we did not have to lug machines with us - just a few hand sewing supplies. We worked on the Thousand Pyramid Quilt pattern. For all the past week, I just cut out triangles - going through my stash and cleaning out bins . I only wanted one of each fabric, so I brought bunches of triangles for my friends to use. I think my husband was beginning to worry about me, as I worked night after night, cutting triangles, and that might be why he gave me the books a little early. He asked me...."Is that all you are going to do tonight - cut out triangles?" When I said yes, he went and brought me the books. Actually, cutting out the triangles has been good therapy for me this past week, but having a loving caring husband is the best I could ask for.

I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend. We went out to eat with my brother and his wife last night and then to see the movie Paul Blark, Mall Cop. A great comedy relief.

OOHH--I watched a Fons and Porter's Love of quilting esisode today and they demoed a ruler for an equalateral triangle. It was great. I was thinking of getting one to make this quilt myself. Your husband really did good! You must have been a really good girl!!

Wonderful Valentine's gifts!! I've got a ton of triangles printed for a thousand pyramids quilt -- must get started on that!!

I can't wait to hear how you do with the EQ6 learning curve as that's something I plan to tackle within the next couple of weeks. I have the program and have played around with it a bit, but need to really spend some time.

What a thoughtful husband. You must be very proud of him. I will look forward to seeing the progress of the thousand pyramids quilt. What a challenge!

Your husband is definitely a keeper. I love a man who serves coffee to his gal. Keep us posted with pictures of your 1000 pyramid quilt. Let us know if you need fabric scraps to meet your goal.

Any husband who supports a fiber habit is a keeper! Sounds like you have a great one!

I have EQ6 and bought a book on drawing a few years ago and which I have yet to try out. Thanks for the reminder. What a sweetie of a husband you have and he is definitely a keeper!
