I look forward to each upcoming holiday to make different things and offer a variety to my customers. I am working on more hearts and an arrow like the ones to the right of my blog and I made these purple calico hearts with a little material that I had left and they turned out very pretty. I normally make more primitive, stained muslin type of bowl fillers, however, I also like to make shabby items too, especially during the Valentine's Day selling season.
I really love these... They are made with pink material with tiny white dots and I have handstitched vintage quilt hearts onto them with floss. I have not stained them because I really love the colors as they are and am hoping others will like them as well.
I have both sets of these listed on eBay. One set of purple hearts has a bid on them, but I have two other sets in my store. Of course, I will be moving one set to auction when the one on auction ends in a couple of hours. Click on the right side of my blog to shop in my eBay store or in my Etsy store. My purple hearts are listed on Etsy as well and I will be listing a pink set on there, time permitting.
Enjoy and be blessed ~
Every season, there is a gorgeous view here on our spot on the mountain. During the winter time, even though the branches are bare and the grass is not so green and the camper is covered up in hibernation, there is always beauty around us. I will try to catch a picture of the sunset that we enjoy in the front of the house to post. I love to look at the pretty warm colors behind the bare trees.
Everything is settling back to normal here. Our time together for Christmas break was really nice. Yesterday, school was closed here due to freezing rain, but it is warmer today and school is on time.
When Christmas break is over, I start to look forward to Spring. Even though I know we have a few more months of cold weather, it feels within reach. Pretty soon the daffodils will be poking up through the mulch and the robins will be pulling worms out of the ground. We are blessed to live in an area that we have four seasons to enjoy and appreciate what each has to offer.
