And the winner is..........

I interrupted Fred's Super Bowl game long enough to draw the winning name, and Mary, he said to tell you that you owe him $5! I'll bring it to you at our Saturday meeting, and Congratulations!

Today I finished the Heart and Home wall hanging I have been working on. On the last post, it looked like this. As you know I was not at all happy with this design. Sooooooooooooooooooo.......

After several revisions (or I should say rippititions) it ended up like this. The saying that I put on it says "It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home." I found that on the internet and really liked it. It was listed as "author unknown" so I think that means I am free to use it. I did free motion hearts for the quilting. It is hanging between two kitchen cabinets, hiding an ugly grey fuse box. The heart buttons are shell buttons that I recently found at Tuesday Morning and just love. I purchased a bag of them - hearts, butterflies, different shapes and sizes.

Wednesday my lunch group finished up our pizza box round robbin and I am just thrilled with my quilt. You may recognize the Boo block center from Fons and Porter - but the rest of the design is original to the ladies in the group.

Round 1 - set the block on point - Cheryl, and she added some nice embroidered leaves;
Round 2 - the second round was a pieced border - Katie G and pretty friendship stars so appropriate;
Round 3 - 3 dimensional, and Carol added some yoyo flowers for the dimension;
Round 4 - was quilter's choice - Katie L, and just the right finishing touch.

They all did a wonderful job and I could not be more pleased. Thank you Cheryl, Carol, Katie and Katie!

Thanks for stopping by,

Teresa, Thank you so much for the Ott Lite. Tell Fred I will bring his $5 to the next meeting.
I am really excited that I won. I will be able to take it to the Retreat next year. (Super Bowl was great.)

Thanks again.

Congrats to Mary! Maybe she won't be at the meeting on Saturday and it will go to the next runner-up in the room. I think that would be me!!

I see where the cute little heart ended up. What a wonderful wall hanging and a lovely saying. Your round robin is very cute, too.
