Happy Pre-Valentines Day!
I had been planning on presenting a whole week’s worth of fun Valentine Day craft ideas from a variety of sources. But since it is February 12th already (Where the heck did JANUARY GO?) I will be lumping a bunch together now. You have tonight and Saturday – unless you are on the other side of the world and that means you just have Saturday pretty much. I asked some of my friends in a Quilt-related Designer group that I belong to for some of their tutorials and the like. So here’s what they came up with:
She also just posted these little bags!
Joan Ford sent me this little care package to make some of these great little heart shaped pins. I lost this package in the studio until today….so uh, yeah, they didn’t get made. But good news is Joan sent a bunch of the stiff batting squares and pins. So down the road I will test out her Mini Scrap Grid and make some pins …. and then give away a couple packs from the leftovers.
Card Trick was the first traditional block that I ever made I think — in the CLASSIC 1980’s colors of Dusty Blue, Dusty Rose, and Laven-dirt. 🙂
And Kathy Brown sent these awesome little wool “ewe” patterns to try out. Haven’t gotten to them, but I really do like these a lot!
Especially this one!
Tomorrow I will show you how I re-engineered this great project designed by Allison Harris to fit our family for Linda for Valentine’s Day. She’s doing floral work these days — and well it’s Valentine’s — I don’t see her much right now.
Oh, and if you want just some simple heart shapes to make a couple different scrappy Heart Ornaments you can grab the PDF from this Blue Nickel Post.
That’s it for now. I have to go get something for my Honey for Sunday, even though I probably won’t see much of her on the day — we both have to work all day. (Linda’s in Retail Flowers like I said above and I am at the Costco IT call center “24/7 baby”) And then I have to work on tomorrow’s post. I am looking forward to showing you the stuff I made with a new line by Joel Dewberry – including Linda’s Valentine.
Keep Sewing, Keep Happy,
