Valentine's Day
Mr Yummers surprised me with this BEAUTIFUL basket of flowers.
The colors are sooooo lovely... I had to share them with you.
He's my valentine!!
This heart was made from a piece of a very old quilt and has been
in our family for a long time. I haven't mended the small holes as
I think they add to the charm. I sewed a loop on the back and it hangs
on the wall in the guest room.
A touch of the past.

This heart was a gift from a friend. I love the white-on-white
embroidery! So simple and clean looking.

This is a wonderful 44 page book full of ideas and instructions.
I found it at
It is filled with yummy heart projects!!

This is one idea from the book and I love it!! I'm about to throw
on some clothes, and head out to get a wreath, and some
felt. I have been felting wool but I don't have any red yet,
so I'm off to pay full price for some red wool felt. Ish!
I think it will look great on our front door!

Make this a good day!

Love to all of you sweet people!

What a lovely Mr Yummers!

The hearts are all gorgeous but I especially like the old quilted one. Like the one for the door too - look forward to seeing it when you have made your version.

OOH girl, I love that folk art look. And the white on white heart just made me smile!

I need a new wreath for the front door. That gives me an idea -- something that even *I* could make! LOL
