And We're OFF!!

And we are charging around the back bend and coming on strong...................oh, wait that's a horse race, not the race to finish up some UFO's.  But, we are out of the gate and running. 
Why is it we never start working on a project until the date is right upon us??  It's Valentine Day soon--very soon!  So, cutting hearts from freezer paper............

Ironing those hearts onto red & pink fabric to make this delightful wall hanging.

A bouquet of hearts-- Pattern in the latest issue of McCall's Quilting Magazine. 

We are in RED mode and continuing some redwork stitchery.  We have three more to stitch just like this one. 
And we finished knitting this shawl from Stephen West Designs.  This is one of the five patterns that Stephen is offering through his shawl club via Ravelry.  We opted for the PDF version, thinking we could use up some of our stash.  This yarn was handspun.  The pattern doesn't show up very well with this yarn so there might be another one in our future using different yarns.
And Oh My Gosh!  Just couldn't resist this funky chicken from Fat Cat Patterns! Just love these chicks!  This is Sindy's 2012 BOM--this is going to be fun.  Luckily, we are using stash fabrics.  Well, we completely forgot about finishing an UFO before beginning another UFO..........
Maybe, this will count for ticking off the UFO list--Miss Birdie Stitches.  We are putting on the borders and readying for quilting.  Was so much fun to do these each month!
What do you do with mohair locks, felting needles and a silk scarf? 
You felt the locks to the ends of the scarf to make an interesting fringe!  More scarves in our future??  It's a good possibility!!  This was quick and simple--just had to find the felting needles and that we did at Joann Fabrics --used 50% off coupon. 
Back to the studio to wrap up a couple more UFO's......................
