Hearts and Pins

 I am so glad to have the time to get back and blog. I have missed doing this each day as I had planned to do at the beginning of the year. Life as always gets in the way of best laid plans. I have my mother living with DH and I now after being in the hospital. Our apartment is pretty crowded and she is sleeping in the sewing room~~~ can you hear me, it feels like fingernails on a chalkboard to me to think about someone being in my room!!
I did move the cutting table and a couple of boxes to the garage to make room for her.
I have been getting alittle done in the craft department. I completed the pin on the right. It was a challenge on the StitchMap yahoo group. I loved doing it and I plan to whip up a couple more.

 Below you will see the heart decoration that I made. At the antique mall with my BFF Linda yesterday I saw these huge burgandy wool hearts! I knew I could make some and they would even be cuter than the ones at the mall. I went to the shelf and found a red wool and made this heart. I love how it turned out. I also got out some other Valentine decorations. I hope they will give everyone in our family a boost.

 I hope the center shows up when you enlarge it. I hope that I can be back on a more regular basis.

One thing about this Valentine it was free!! Everything on it was in our house so I spent nothing out of pocket to make it. I am thinking another one might be fun!! What will the next one look like, I don't know.



  1. Hi Karen , lovely to see you back. Life is never simple, is it? Love your heart. I finishing one off today. Take care my friend. Blessings
