Another year as an Island Batik Ambassador

I am so excited to announce that I have the privilege of being an Island Batik Ambassador for another year! Woo Hoo!
I received all my lovely Island Batik fabrics late Thursday night! What do you think? I am so excited. 
See the little pink bundle on the right side with the biege tie! That is my "Galentine Bundle". Please let me explain.

We have been given several projects for the month of February and I am just getting in under the wire on the first project.

It is called Happy Galentine's Day! You read it right. I didn't realize there was one, but it is celebrated on February 13th. It is a celebration of our best pals and lady friends. Why shouldn't we celebrate our fellow females who encourage and inspire us?

So I had Friday, Saturday and Sunday to work on this and I thought I can get this done. However since Sunday was my 29th wedding anniversary, my dear sweet wonderful husband had other plans so my plans were changed! 

Because time was of the essence, I decided on Mug Rugs.  I was going to make patchwork hearts, but ran out of time. So I knew these had to be very simple. I just made two sizes of hearts and fused them together and then onto the Mug Rugs. I will do machine applique around the edges plus quilt them when I have more time. Here is my work in progress.


Here they are! I made two. They are not finished, but I think my friends will be very forgiving since this was a very special weekend for me and my husband!

When they are finished, I will share a picture, but I will be back with another project later this month and I am so very excited about that one! It is all about animals and you know what an animal lover I am.

Meanwhile I hope you have a Happy Galentine's Day with your good friends and a Happy Valentine's Day too.
Eat lots of chocolate!
