Er, I should say from Start to Finish
on how I made this heart.
Start with 2 pieces of muslin.
I hand sew all of my projects.
I always try to hide my slit
when I want to stuff a creation.
You can see the slit better once
the piece was turned over.
I lightly stuffed and then sewed the slit closed.
Next I cut out another heart
from red wool.
Silver beads were attached all around.
I then took and added another smaller
Attached red glass beads.
I then attached the beaded piece
to the stuffed heart.
Packaged in a cello bag.
Tied with a black and white check ribbon.
I chose this color ribbon,
because my theme for our Winter/ Valentine
back room at the gift shop
is red and black.
Only have 2 left.
Guess I should have made more,
but I am on Easter now.
Now I always save my fabric remnants.
I use these when I make pillows.
I like the feel of fabric instead of
the morning glory stuffing I use for
Waste not I say.
I did decide to take the red wool out.
This may be used for making wool pennies
at some point.
Thank you again for all your
thoughts & prayers for my daughter.
This week she had to have a blood transfusion.
Her blood pressure crashed & heart rate
went through the roof.
Her hemoglobin was really low,
thus the reason for the transfusion.
I also spent some time taking care
of my grands this past week.
Looks like she will still be in the hospital
yet another week.
I know she is getting antsy to get home.
Am hoping she is through the worst of it now.
Yesterday I took our kitty Ace to the vet
or his annual checkup.
Once I placed him in his carrier,
the entire way there and home
he kept saying
Get MEOW-out of here.
He would not stop meowing. LOL
Once back home he was fine.
Well of to get Tundra his Timbit,
and my bagel.
Heart To Finish Blessings To All!
