Life is Like a Box of Chocolates...

I have had this wonderful book for over a year...and had high hopes of satisfying all my creative urges and using up all my scraps!  I even took it to my local book binder and had it spiral bound for quick and creative use.  Fast forward a few months and my fellow Fabric Stalker Lori and I made a commitment to make one a month...or maybe 1 every 2 months...fast forward over a year and neither of us has made one quilt.  Then I stumbled upon Huckleberry Stitches who was putting together a monthly stitch along.  I got so excited!!!  All I needed was someone to hold the carrot in front of me!


She is choosing one quilt a month for everyone who wants to follow along to create.  The first one is Box of Chocolates.  It was a little to sweet for me since I am a dark chocolate, cherry cordial kind of gal...so, I switched out the fabric choices to my liking.


I LOVE IT!!!  I put a heart button in the corners because what is better than chocolates in a heart shaped box!  So head on over to Huckleberry Stitches to check out all the Box of Chocolates!


We are celebrating today because...
it is Ground Hogs Day and HH's birthday!  So where ever you are have a cupcake and celebrate with us! lol



And...to start Monday off with a good laugh...



...and Fabric Depot was having a Super Bowl Sale...what's a girl to do that doesn't watch football???
