Binding and Valentines

I currently have two quilts that are almost done. I just need to tack down the binding on both of them.

Here is the quilt I'm giving to Mom. It's quite large, and when you are stitching around these big quilts by hand they just seem bigger! I am over halfway around, I think.

I try to work on it in the evenings when we are watching television. I also took it with me to quilting on Friday morning when we Frankfort girls met. I got a lot done there.

Another quilt I am binding is the baby quilt for Flynn, Sharon P.'s grandson. It was this project that I had on the machine when my feed dogs quit working on my Bernina. That may have been over 3 weeks ago, now! Anyway, since I've got a loaner machine to use, I stitched the binding on last evening, and now have it ready to stitch, too. I can't recall the last time I had 2 quilts at this point of completion at the same time. I will get a picture of Flynn's quilt soon.

And because Valentine's Day is coming up, I wanted to share with you a cool little treat I found on Pinterest and tried last week. It's fun! And yummy!

Spread rows of waffle pretzels on a cookie sheet. Place a Hershey Hug Kiss on each pretzel. Warm in oven until the chocolate is melty enough to press a Valentine's M&M onto the top. Gotta' watch them closely or they will melt too much.


Aren't they pretty? They are fun, but melting that Hershey Hug is tricky. I want to make some more today.

Happy Quilting, Friends!

That means finishes when the bindings are done and they look wonderful. Happy Valentines, your treats look yummy.

Those little treats look yummy, but here we don't have the Hershey things and I've never seen the pretzels or the special M&Ms either. Aren't we deprived? Poor us in the UK.
