Sentimental Journey Block 2 and a Giveaway!


Are you ready for the next block on our Sentimental Journey?
I changed the button on the side if you would like to grab it for your blog. Learned a new computer program and have been having some fun!

Ok... so you know I had to have hearts being this is the month of Love!
I think this sentiment is just so perfect and so very true. It always seems we remember the little things when they come to us with love. I guess that's why I like handmade things so much. I know how much love goes into each piece that is created.
Time for a HINT on the finished project.
Don't forget to embellish your blocks! Why you ask??? Well, because this is no ordinary Block of the Month Quilt. It's going to be a "Pocket Quilt." You see every month, the block you make is actually going to be a pocket! How cool is that! So art them up a bit! Ok... that's the only hint you're getting until December. hee,hee,hee. But... if you prefer to make a traditional quilt, then go right ahead. Isn't creative freedom wonderful! :)
The pattern is available on my Website and so is this floss kit for the entire Sentimental Journey this year.
Now onto the Monthly Giveaway!
This month the prize is a pair of Bunny Embroidery Scissors with a Pincushion! Every bunny needs these! hee,hee,hee. All you have to do to be entered is leave a comment. However, just like last month, if you are a follower of my blog, your name goes in the hat twice. So sign up to follow and say "I'm following in your comment." I will pick the winner next Monday, February 8th. Good luck!
Happy stitching!
Your friend,
shell
