Real Live Sewing Accomplished

I have finishes!!!!
My sewing kit is complete and mailed off to help the folks in Queensland and other parts of Australia that were affected by all of the horrible floods.
 Hope it helps bring a little happiness.
So much is happening lately, now there has been a terrible earthquake in New Zealand.
Not to mention all of the extreme cold weather we are having here.
Prayers go out to everyone.
So I have also done some other sewing.
I have finished the first three blocks from the Florida Cabin Fever BOM.
  And I may be a little late, but I am almost finished this heart wallhanging that I started for Valentine's Day. So I will be early for next year.
Hopefully I will have lots ready for next year. Valentine's Day is my favorite holiday I do think.
How could it not be when I have a dear sweet hubby who sends singing Valentine's.
Yep he did!!!
So here are my hearts:
It is on the machine waiting for me to come back and finish quilting it.
I am working on a few dozen other things as well, but I think I better save some for later.
Hope you are all staying warm and safe.

We Have A Winner!

Well, Joy is busy settling herself into her new palace in Saudi Arabia, so I will announce the January Finishing Stitches winner.
Drum roll please...
You really have to go check out her blog--she does some of the most gorgeous things.
Not really sure how many things she finished--I believe on Joy's sidebar it says lots.
She did more than anyone else.
And for her efforts she has won a Sherbet Pips jelly roll oops my bad, that would be charm pack.
Very cute!!!
I am sure that we will see something sherbet-y coming from Yvonne real soon.

Also wanted to make sure that everyone is still sending out prayers and/or sewing kits to help the many people affected by the horrible flooding in Australia.
So many have lost everything.
If you have not read the post from Among The Gum Trees go here.

Now everyone get back to work on those blocks and UFOs. Joy will inform us of the February challenge as soon as she has a free moment.
