Hurray for Hearts!

Over the past few years, I have concocted quite an assortment of heart-themed things, it's true. So I thought it might be fun to hop into our virtual time-machine and see what sorts of Valentiny treasures we could dig up on the old blog, eh? Here are some of them:

In the left-hand column, we have the sunkissed heart wreath (tutorial included), the tissue box valentines (tutorial included) and the quilted heart rug. In the right-hand column, we have the tissue box photo hearts (tutorial included), the crazy heart cushion and the twig and cereal box heart (tutorial included). And finally at the bottom, we have the fabric heart garland!

It's neat seeing them together in one fell swoop. (That's a whole lot of hearts there Michele.) Kind of puts me in the heart-making mood though, eh? How 'bout you?

Quilt In Progress

Today I'm busy stitching together the various parts of my latest quilty project. Haven't made one of those in a while, eh? Here's a quick peek...

Hello 2016.

Hello 2016.


Nice to make your acquaintance.

You're so fresh and new aren't you? You've barely even taken a breath. Let me help you with that. I've been here for some time now and breathing is pretty much second-nature to me. See? I can do it with my eyes closed and with both hands tied behind my back. An old pro I am.

Do you think we'll get along you and I? I sure hope so. The last few years came with moments of uncertainty and doubt, moments of distinct fogginess. But as far as years go, 2016, I have a good feeling about you.

Yeah. You know what? We're gonna get along like a house on fire, 2016. Just you wait.


P. S. The above crockery is a piece I had a lovely time decorating and glazing at our local Crock A Doodle (aka: Paint-Your-Own-Pottery-Store) prior to this Christmas. I gifted it to my Elle during our 2015 family gift exchange. This is a fun fun fun and easy easy easy craft that you ought to try if you like to paint and such. The final kiln-fired result is food and dishwasher safe, and beautiful too.
