February CQJP Block 2

I'm not quite done with this block - are we every really done? Maybe we just come to a stopping point. Anyway, here are some details I've added since last week. I've really got to move on to March after today. 
I worked on the border around the photo. I'm using a lot of the crocheted trim that was on the linens I used in the cq blocks. Here I added French knots to stretch out the crochet which was a little compressed, I suppose, after all these years. Then I'm putting a bead on the little picot edges. 

This is an idea from the Samples book (which I got through interlibrary loan and is due tomorrow. :-( I will have to turn it in.) More details to go inside the hearts.Handwork is so slow, but so satisfying.

"Hearts" are a major theme in this quilt in case you didn't notice. 
Next Saturday is my birthday AND the sewing expo in Atlanta. I never miss this event and usually wind up staying all day long. It's not far from where I live but it is a good 45 minute drive. But I love it and I'm really looking forward to going again - you can find all kinds of neat stuff there!

I'm off for my morning walk and then an afternoon with my daughters. AFter the Friday storms, it turnd off cold again. 

Have a great day, everyone.
