Hearts, houses and hookin'...

"Muse" up in Napa Valley sent me a note..."send more heart pins, only one left!" So I got to work last night and hooked up these little hearts. Now to turn them into pins and send them on their way.
And I finally finished the house on the right and need to fill in the other one. I think these will be small wall pieces, but I sort of like them together!
Monday night we had our monthly meeting of the Creative Females at Anne's home. Maren brought her new style of quilting called the "Tile" technique. I got to see all of her completed squares and they are gorgeous!

Love Katie's completed. She made it using her "left-overs"..what great colors!
Annie, who is off to Portland gave us a show of her hooked pieces that she plans to sell. All food and kitchen related, bright and cheerful, there are about three or four more!

Carol brought her knitting...and has been busy playing a lot of Bridge!
Penny shared a new piece of her "Circle" series....12" squares-hooked "paintings"!
Anne S. is taking lots of jewelry classes and shared this fun enameled heart necklace she made.
Our cookie exchange was a big hit. We made cookies to share and included the recipe for everyone to take home. I made peanut butter bars from Joy of Cooking-rich, but yummie.
