All of my projects these past few days seem to have something to do with HEARTS. I am participating in a Valentine swap so I had fun trying out a few ideas.
The first a heart shaped potholder was found on the Martha Stewart website here.
A fairly simple project made with fabric I had here at home. I am not sure what the original plan for the fabric was but there is plenty more fabric and I hope to make a few more.
Next I made a linen sachet, embroidered with design from The Raspberry Rabbits block of the month design. I have a link on my sidebar. I also embroidered a block in blue for my block of the month quilt.
The sachet is filled with dried lavender we grew in our back yard.
My inspiration for the next project came from the January issue of the Romantic Homes Magazine.
My heart does not look much like the one pictured above but the article was my inspiration.
I used vintage lace, buttons, flowers and an old hymnal that is falling apart to create my heart. I hope to try to make one or two more, this kind of project makes me stretch my creativity a little.
