You know when you take down the Christmas decorations and the house is all cleaned up but it looks so empty? Well I had to do something to fill up those spaces to make the transition over to 'sparse' less traumatic. So I headed over to Pinterest to look for quick and easy Valentine decorations. There are many wonderful ideas and the easiest I found were made with scrapbooking paper. Well I don't have any scrapbooking paper and that is one craft I am trying to avoid getting sucked into. I have enough UFO's laying around to last me into the next life so I don't need anymore!
Digging threw my scrap basket, I found little pieces that I thought would be perfect to use up. Little bits here and little bits there, cuttings from old work shirts, skirts ..... never waste anything!
Now I could have been more intricate and when I do make more, I will use pieces of ribbon and lace but seeing that time is running short, I just wanted to fill up those sparse areas in the living room quickly.
I didn't want to drag out the sewing machine and make it complicated. I wanted them simple. Hand stitched with embroidery thread was a satisfying way of making these little sweet things.
A couple of hours later, my little hearts were done, ready to be displayed. But where?
Come back on Friday to see where I will be displaying these little things! Have a great day and remember to give your loved ones a hug!
