 I've started a new if I need a another new project!  I'm making Candy remember those little candy hearts in a box?  They were one of my favorite candies when I was a little girl.  Want to know more about candy hearts...CLICK HERE

So I'm making hearts.  I knew I wanted them similar to these colors.  So went digging around in my fabrics and pulled out some colors I liked.  But what fabric to put them on.  I recently purchased 3 yards of what I call red gingham.  Not sure if that's what it is, but I like it!

I've went on line and googled candy some of the sayings on them. I'll be embroidering the sayings onto my hearts.  These are 8 1/2" blocks.  The rows will have a sashing between them...not sure what color...I'll have to think about that one.  I've got 2 of the hearts sewed down.

I've also been working on my String Blocks.  I've got enough to put 3 rows together.

That's it for today...I'm linking up with....
