Just in case you aren’t sick of valentines crafts and quilts yet, I thought I would share some of my doings around here lately.
I have been stitching, and stuffing, and quilting, and gluing hearts, hearts, and more hearts.
I made a heart make-do out of fabric, and old bed spring, and other do-dads. The punch needle I already shared, and a box I covered with fabric then pasted a vintage valentine on it :
I quilted up a couple of valentine tops I made last year but never finished:
I found the cutest treenware box the other day and thought it would make a nice candle holder, so I found some grungy candles that I had and wraped some scrap book paper around it to make this:
I finally found a frame for the embroidery project….I looked at every place I could think of and could NOT find a frame it would fit in. I even went to a embroidery store. Dollar store to the rescue, it’s not the frame I want , but it’s the only one I could find. I was blue so I had to spray paint it black, but hey, a dollar for something that will only sit out for a month isn’t bad. There it is behind the candy kisses that are disappearing at a rapid rate.
I also made another stuffed heart bouquet with some wooden spoons, cinnamon sticks, and fake cookies tucked in:
I also wanted to share a pattern that a very sweet blog friend sent me.
Her name is Pat McDonald and she has some great patterns available here
Here is the pattern she so graciously gave me called I Love the Country:
Isn’t it beautiful? I love it, thank you so much Pat!!
