It's hard to tell from this picture (and I would do it bigger next time) but the three white stripes of the flag have the words "Through the night with a light from above. From the mountains, to the prairies, to the oceans, white with foam."
And yes, those are my fuzzy slippers.

The remaining blocks were mixed up so there was a variety of colors in each block, though not much pink (since I had used it all in my mistake) so I sashed it in pink.

he was a beautiful butterfly
Pieced together back......
I had left-over scraps from another heart quilt (that still needs to be quilted), so I used them in making the hearts.
here are some pics from my craft room... i had fun exploring antique shops in the area to find fun ways to display my stuff. the two wooden crates stacked on top of each other work great for my flat folds... i have a metal egg basket that holds all my homespun plaids... big painted baskets hold my scraps (can you see my bolt of batting hiding behind?)... i found an old wooden coke box to display the collection of thread that i inherited when my grandma passed away (you'd be surprised how much i use that old thread)... and, i use knitting needles to hold my ribbon. that's all... we have sick kiddos here at my house... i miss my sewing machine, but she understands i'll be back someday.
