I really love the colors in this quilt. I didn't put a sleeve on it so it doesn't get hung up except in my sewing room, with pins. Today I am going to fix that so I can put it in my kitchen. I can't believe Valentine's Day is just around the corner, winter is going fast.
I received a super nice heart felt gift from my sister in law for Christmas. I needed to send a thank you note but everything I had at home was kind of blah. So Katherine over at Sew Me Something Good had made some cute cards a while back and I decided to look them up and make some for myself.
First get yourself some scraps.....you do have some don't you? (-:
I bought some cards with envelopes at A.C. Moore. You could make the cards yourself but this gives you instant gratification.
Use some fancy scissors to gussy up the edges and make it look less store bought...
Sew some scraps together about the size of your card, that way you will have room to play with in the size.
I took some batting and machine quilted all over the scraps. There was no backing.
Cut out your heart, apply some glue from a glue stick and sew around the edges. Be sure to write your message in red ink! I also think this will need 2 stamps.
I might make some more of these for the grandkids and stick some money in there instead of getting them candy. They love to get mail!
This morning when I came down stairs I found this amazing pattern of frost on the skylight. Isn't it cool! Oh Jack Frost your'e such a funny fellow......
A big thank you to all the nice ladies at the Berks Quilt Guild for welcoming me last night. I enjoyed sharing my quilts with you all.
