I finished the Navy Blue Background Swap quilt top yesterday.  I have a bunch of blocks left, but I may make them into table runners or placemats.  Some friends have a craft show every fall and have invited me to sell, which will be a great way to get rid of some of my excess creations.   Here's the top which I will quilt eventually:

 This morning, I took my sewing machine to be cleaned and checked at a newish rendition of a community sewing machine shop.  Betty and Carl bought the business from a very nice, old gentleman who had sold the business to someone else who didn't do such a good job.  He bought it back and then sold it again after a few years, having found just the right people this time.  While I am without "Rose," I have my old reliable Viking 100 which can't quilt but which makes great buttonholes and sews in a fairly straight line.  I am playing around with scraps for a few days, which will be fine.  And here's a photo of my hearts doorhanging, just for February!

selling at a craft show sounds good - hope they are better than some small ones here - one lady sells at one and every year people try their hardest to get her to practically give away - they do not want to pay nice prices here often.
