Roses are red…Violets are blue..okay you get it. Valentines is unmistakably around the corner and I thought I would add to the romance around here. Over the weekend I started cutting out little red felt heart shapes hoping that a loved-up project would wing its way into my mind and inspire a project.
I grabbed my embroidery thread and had a play.
I practised different stitches around the little felt heart shapes in turn creating different textures and borders around them. I enjoyed sewing away and this has carried on until today on and off.
So these little hearts are currently sat on my workspace and I have decided they need some contrasting white heart shapes as companions.
As I started to embroider the little white felt heart shapes, it came to me as if I had been shot with cupid’s arrow of inspiration.
I knew exactly what to do with these little love hearts…
What do you think I am going to make? Are you going to tune in tomorrow…yes! Tomorrow! For an extra special, one off, Thursday blog post? If you do, I promise to show you the finished piece…deal? I better get sewing! This is exciting!
Meet me for a chat with a cup of tea in the comments below. I’ll click the kettle on!
See you tomorrow 🙂
