Nuts About ???.... Blog Hop and My Day

Welcome to my day on the Nuts About ???... Blog Hop.  



I'm Nuts About a lot of things, especially these two grandkids...


And these two grandkids...


And of course my boys...


But you didn't come here to see them.  

I'm also Nuts About Quilting, and Nine Patches, and Valentines.  So look what comes together when you mix all three of those things.... Nine Hearts...  



However, I'm NOT Nuts about that snow that this sweet wall hanging is laying on.


Some super simple quilting makes this project so quick and easy to do.  


I'll have a tutorial/free pattern on Wednesday about how to make this Nine Hearts wall hanging.  Be sure to come back and get it.  

I'm also Nuts About Marian at Seams To Be Sew.  She is the head Nut behind all this hop!  She's done a fabulous job putting all us Nuts together.  Check out the other Nutty Bloggers on today's schedule and see what they're Nuts About.

    1. I just realised I was meant to answer your question. I don't celebrate Valentine's day - it's my birthday on the 16th, so I'd rather focus on that, but I'd never turn down a new book.
