Pinwheels Everywhere 2!!

I hung the pinwheel mini quilt in my bathroom, and because of all the mirrors, there really are pinwheels everywhere!! LOL


Haven't done much sewing (no one wants to see my mending), but I have been blog surfing and catching up on emails!
Sheila has a great blog, she always finds such interesting things!!
Kat does beautiful work - and she is a grad student - I don't know how she has the time!
Diane Gaudynski has great machine quilting tips and information on her blog.
My friend Wendy told me about Karen McTavish today. She does stunning quilting (I added one of her books to my wish-list on Amazon!).
These are only a few of the blogs I have checked out today! It amazes me all the talent out there - so inspirational!! Thanks to every one for taking the time to share!!
Tomorrow it is time to get back to the sewing machine - my youngest is going to a friend's and my house is clean - so lots of time to sew!!

If any one is wondering how to add hearts (and all kinds of other symbols) - it is an" Alt Code". Just hold down the "Alt" key on the keyboard and type in the number - for a heart it is number 3 (on the keyboard number pad - not the ones at the top - on my laptop I have to press the "number lock" key, and use the appropriate letter keys with the little numbers. I had my computer for over a year before I even realized these were on there!! Thank God for teenagers!!!) The heart appears when you let go of the "Alt" key.

Have a great day and thanks for dropping by!!

There is a contest going on over at I have a Notion, to win some Aurifil thread. Good Luck!

:-) Thanks for thinking of me! I did some hand quilting today with my new hoop. It is tedious but I'm liking the result.

Your wallhanging is lovely and looks perfect in your bathroom! And I have a MAC so don't have a number pad - guess the little symbols won't work for me?! :o(

Have a great day sewing!!!!

XOXO,

Cyndi

Love the reflections! Triple the pleasure!

Thanks for sharing how to add symbols. I was always too afraid to ask, someone might think I was so dumb!

I think I'm going to go and play around with them now!☺
