Yesterday I mentioned that I wanted to whip up a small wall hanging for my kitchen for Valentine's Day, which lead me to a lengthy search for some heart blocks I knew I had stitched up a couple of years ago. That's them at the top of my design wall. They are about 14 inches square and stitched up in Debbie Mumm fabrics.
And during the search for the heart blocks I stumbled upon these Stack-n-Whack block which feature hearts in them. I had totally forgotten about them and thought I had corralled all my SNW projects in one container - I hadn't. Not only did I find these blocks but I found 3 more SNW projects - holy hording Batman!
This fabric is really colorful. It has a stained glass look which is why I picked the black frame I assume. I made these years and years and years ago. As you can count there are 7 finished blocks. I found 7 of the 8 wedges for an 8th block and there are about 10 more cut out and fabric to do more. They are very pretty, they kinda glow and I have no memory about why I didn't finish them, but I think I will. Maybe just a lap sized quilt instead of a big queen sized one that I usually end up with.
Pawing through basket after basket of unfinished projects gave me time to ponder what I'm going to do with all this stuff. My first thought was I need a dumpster - a BIG dumpster - but since our driveway is already bumper to bumper with cars that isn't feasible at the moment. So I think I need to find some new homes for them. I'm sending some fabric with my son to his volunteer job. He works with an organization that does art projects with disabled individuals. They taken my donations before. And I'm going to do some giveaways with other projects in progress. Check back couple of days. I need to figure out the logistics.
As for the little heart wallhanging for my kitchen - ummm, I don't really like any of these blocks for that room. They are all the wrong colors. Oh well, not every project goes as planned.
