Valentine's Day

It's time to put out the Hearts for Valentine's Day!
 I have a new Heart for the front door.  I do love this red frame though!!!
 I made this cork heart a couple of years ago.  It hangs in my kitchen for the holiday.
I am entertaining Duplicate Bridge next month so let the decorating begin...

Happy Birthday Quilts for each of my children.  Given to them for 2015 Christmas.

 This was the quilt I made my children for their 2014 Christmas Present.
 This was the quilt I made my children for this 2012 Christmas Present.

Sunday's project

Yesterday I painted in the garage since it was so nice out. 
 I made 6 Texas Flag pillows out of Burlap for the patio.  
Flags on the front side and polka dots on the backs.  
All I have left to do is stuff them and glue them together.

Ready for Valentine's Day!

Yesterday I put all the snowmen away and brought out the Valentine Decorations.
 The wooden heart basket on the left my Dad made for me years ago.  
I put our little John Clark gnome called"Valentine" front and center.
I love staging this little table.
 My old carpenters box is filled with hearts that I have made plus candles and corks.
 I have made several heart pillows through the years and this is one of my favorites.
 A couple of years ago I made the heart table topper.  
The hearts hanging on the hutch are made out of brown paper bag and painted.  
 The heart garland was another fun project one year.
 My powder room is where I have some of my framed Valentine Cards.
Finally a grouping of all the hearts I have made over the years.
