"Hearts" and no Friday Night Sew-In.


I have finished the second row for the quilt Anita and are I doing. February's theme for the blocks was "Hearts" with Valentines Day falling in February I thought this was an appropriate theme. You may be wondering why I have a big tick on the first block,well that is the logo the Heart Foundation puts on foods that are good for us. If we see that on a food we know the Heart Foundation has given it the tick of approval. There are some great recipe ideas on the Heart Foundation website. Check it out.

Another block had the "Ace of Hearts" after all we have all played cards and wanted the Ace to win.

The final block was a lovely stitchery that Darlene did for the member of Snickerdoodle Dreams.

Here it is all joined together. For March for our blocks the theme is Green/Trees. With St Patrick's day just gone I wonder if I will have a few Shamrocks to put onto one of them.

I never managed to join in the Friday Night Sew-In this month as I had to undergo some day surgery on Friday at the local Hospital. I spent Thursday preparing for the surgery by having to drink a litre of some salty tasting fluids then 3 tablets then later on I had 3 litres of the most vile tasting stuff I have ever tasted which made me very sick. I had managed to drink 2 litres but that 2nd litre took so long to drink and there was no way I was able to drink the last litre. Luckily Ian rang the hospital to see if it was alright if I didn't drink it. Thankfully they said no!!!!Plus I wasn't able to eat anything only drink clear fluids. The surgery went well and they didn't find anything so will have some more surgery later on. Hopefully the prep for that will be different hopefully. All is back to normal now after sleeping most of Friday afternoon and having a Nana nap yesterday. We did have a very full day yesterday with a house full of visitors coming and going but more will be revealed on tomorrows "Makes Me Happy" posting.

I hope you all enjoy your weekend.

Happy days.

Aww Sorry you've been having to undergo nasties - hope you are okay now and that the next one isn't as bad.

Hearts are wonderful and the heart foundation tick was a stroke of genious once you had explained what it was lol - we have a different one in the uk though they don't put in on many foods. I am loving the stitchery and also the 4 heart clover in particular.

Wow - 2 strips down.. Well done - looking forward to the next one...

Happy Stitching x
