I’m not the shmoopy type…

…and I don’t really care about Valentines Day, but for some reason, I do like hearts. Oh wait. I love chocolate and that’s very Valentines Day-ish. Other than that…I’d rather stay home and watch movies, edit photos or blog. Last time I got my hair cut, the hairdresser asked me, “How do you wear your hair when you go out?”. I was stumped because I couldn’t remember the last time I went out anywhere where it mattered, unless Quilting Bee counts. Nah. They don’t care. OR DO THEY?

While I’m trying to stay on task with just one project and actually finish it, I spent a lot of the afternoon cutting hearts out of fabric that I had ironed on to fusible webbing stuff that makes it much, much easier to sew. I wish I had some of that for that potholder challenge in November.

Unfortunately, I think I broke my fancy cutting machine I bought with my Christmas money. I spent the other part of the afternoon trying to fix it. No luck. Rather than continue trying to fix it, I took about 15 minutes to cut out these hearts. Heh. And here I thought I’d save all this time using the machine.

I’ll try a few more things (like following the directions) before sending it back to the manufacturer.

I’m not sure what this will be…a festive runner for the table? A wall hanging? I’ll keep working on it and let you know.

    Oooh I heart this! 😉
    Very cool, I can’t wait to see how it evolves!
    Fusible web is gooood stuff. And I sure hope the guild doesn’t care about hairstyles or I’m in trouble!

    Very nice applique work! I can’t wait to see the whole piece.

    Or the other question I had from the hairdresser – “so are you going out tonight? Anywhere special?” Like I’m supposed to be Carrie Bradshaw and get together with my fabulous friends on a Wednesday night or something? Do I lie and say I am doing something special so she’ll style it extra nice? What to do? What to do?

    In regards to your hair cut – maybe this quote will help?
    “You wouldn’t worry so much about what others think of you if you realized how seldom they do.”
    ― Eleanor Roosevelt

    sad but true….

    Happy Robbie Burns Day!
