Happy Valentines Day

♥ Happy Valentines Day♥ 
I hope everyone had a wonderful day.  We celebrated my birthday today with dinner out, and my hubby gave me chocolates as a valentine.  Yum.

I had time to sew today and thought I'd first make a Sylvia's Bridal Quilt block.  They're usually not too difficult, so I thought half an hour and I'd be done.  Well, I spent more than 2 hours working on this block, spending most of that time ripping out.  It was very frustrating.  So, I got the whole block put together, was admiring my work and realized something wasn't right.  It took a minute, but I finally realized that I had used the wrong color on one of the pieces.  There should be 8 pink inward points around, not just 4.  I had made them with the purple print.  I doubt that I'll redo the block - done is better than perfect.

Then I went on to the blocks I really wanted to do, the DJs.  I finished these 2 today, and doing both of them didn't take me nearly as long as to do the 1 SBQ block!  The blue one really isn't as wonky as this picture looks.  I should have taken a better picture.
