I'm back . . . well sorta . . . but here is a LOVEly wall hanging

I love the color pink and this wall hanging I made just hits the spot. I have been afraid to decorate with pink because it is very gender specific, but for Valentines day . . . I'M THERE with the pink. I found this amazing quilt pattern at Moda Bake shop and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it . . . and so my creation began. I shrunk it down so it could be a wall hanging. I think it measures about 27 x 30. I used 12 inch x 6 inch rectangles ( I just cut the strips to 12 inches rather then 16 inches.) I found that way cute pink print at my JoAnn's store and gathered up matching pieces to make it in to this amazing quilt. I only used the LOVE part because . . .well you can figure it out . . .it wasn't big enough to put the hugs and kisses part that Natalia at Piece N Quilt in her quilt BUT it still turned out so cute. Here is a before shot so you can get the idea of how the quilt is put together. . .

About the "sorta" in my title. My computer is still in the shop and so I am working with my laptop and don't have "all" of my pics and stuff available. I feel kind of like I have a broken arm in the sense that I can't do the things I want to do right now. But I want to get back in to the swing of things and hopefully by mid week I will be able to post a couple of other projects that I have completed and get back into life. Although they say my computer won't be back until around the 18th . . grrrrrrrh!!! Oh well, C'est la vie as my mother would say . . . "such is life" (translation) . . . every time I say that my husband says " la v" cute I guess if you are being silly . . . I guess he hears it as "Say La V"

Well off to real life - you know dishes, laundry and vacuuming. . . Sometimes I wish I had a maid. . . . .

I just found out I was featured on Sew Mama Sew check it out - it's both my love blocks and my wreath. COOL.
