ABOVE: the back of the quilt, it is 4 wide strips of the navy and light blue striped fabric... you can see my quilting .... it's not fancy, or elaborate.... but it will suffice.
ABOVE: all folded up and ready for wrapping. And now.... I am going to make another one! I will show you later... OK?
Today: well looking forward to a nice day... might just read some blogs... do a bit of housework... and look forward to Stew coming home ... he will then have a whole 3 weeks off! I can't remember the last time he had off such a long stretch of time... probably not since him and I had our 'honeymoon' back in 1997! It was only 10 years after we got married ...and our first and only time away on 'holiday' on our own!
I do believe we will one day have lots of time together, just the two of us.... I HAVE TO!
HOW TO MAKE THE HEARTS:
Right: gather a whole shit load of co-ordinating fabrics... cut as many as you want into 61/2" squares. Then using similar co-ordinating fabrics ... cut out heart shapes....
ABOVE: about that size.... then place your hearts on to the middle of each square and applique on. Once you have done quite a few you need to flip the squares over and trace a smaller heart inside the larger heart..... then you cut out the smaller heart ...
ABOVE: (ignore the fact that it's only half a heart in the photo).... So you end up with the back looking like that... Once you have lots of the smaller hearts you place them on TOP of the first heart (on the right side) and applique them on top of the first heart ... so you end up with two hearts on a square... THEN..
Been a quiet day, took the kids out to lunch then we have watched TV movies all afternoon. It's hot and muggy outside so we chose to stay inside.
One more sleep until another year ends. I have only one 'new year resolution' .... lose weight.
End of Day: looks like Stew and I (old farts that we are!) are actually going to see in the New Year together! Wow, we are still up... off to bed soon... so nite nite...and HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone.
