UFOs, they keep coming back to haunt you

And this one, well it's baaaaack again! Now that I am all caught up on paper work, a blessed event for sure, I feel that I can attack some of those UFOs. First up, this wool rug I started hooking about 10 years ago! Photo bomber Daisy is very curious about new to her project.

What ever was I thinking, lol? My 1st two rug hooking projects were pillows and I was able to complete them in a reasonable time frame. But this.... as you can see I have quite a ways to go! And so I am working on it during the evening hours while I watch TV. 

Next up is a new project. This is block 1 of The Splendid Sampler quilt along. The sampler is run and hosted by Jane Davidson and Pat Sloan. Sponsored by Moda Fabrics, Aurifil thread and Martingale Books. You can find all the information you will need if you wish to join this project at
Each week beginning Feb 14th two blocks will be released, and the sampler will finish with a total of 100 blocks. I joined the group on Facebook and it is so much fun seeing the many different fabric choices that have been made. I have decided to work from my large fabric stash instead of purchasing more for this project. I will let each block lead me to it's fabric choice. Obviously hearts, flowers and love birds were my perfect choice for this pretty Valentine block. I hope that this time next year I won't be saying... what ever was I thinking!

And speaking of Valentines, I hope your day was filled with love and chocolate of course! 
We were pretty quiet, my honey took me out to brunch at a favorite restaurant in Kansas City. 
We then drove around the city to become familiar with where our cute engaged couple is going to be married, hotels, reception site, all those wonderful things. Beyond excited! And then today I had a call that my dress came in for the wedding! I know, Fall is a long time away, but these months are flying by so quickly it will be here before you know it! Love is in the air, yes it is.

Oh yes. I have a lot of UFO's too.
And I'm always starting new projects.
Loved your Splendid Block #1.
Have a nice week.

I have too many UFO's, some I will finish, some I may pass on for someone else to enjoy.
It looks like you are hooking on monks cloth, much easier on linen;)
That is a fun rug though.
