1 Down...

The "Pockets Full of Love-Wedding" wallhanging is finished! The Glitz came in the mail yesterday and I spent most of my night glitzing away. For those of you who don't know what Glitz is, it is a type of gem that has a glue on the back. You use a wand (looks almost like a soidering (sp) iron) to heat the glue and make it stick. You need to hold it over each gem for about 10 - 12 seconds each. Did I mention that there are 210 on my wallhanging! That is 2,520 seconds, so about 42 minutes if you didn't take any breaks AND if you were really quick about picking up the little buggers and getting them into place! Needless to say it took me most of the night :)

I am off in a little while to go to Heartland Quilt Shop in Lockport, NY. I need to pick up a quilt of mine for a couple of trunk shows coming up. And of course to look for fabric. I sketched out two new "Pockets Full of Love" last night and need supplies. So I will post more if I find what I am looking for. Till then...
Happy Quilting! (even you Tiff)
