REDNESDAY



Happy Valentine's Day, my friends! A wonderful thing about Blog Land is that we are loved and cherished by each other every day. Reading blogs can always cheer me up when I'm down!

I was pretty much out of it, as far as crafting, this Valentine season. Didn't really get into it until last week, and I didn't feel like scurrying so I only did a few. After I opened my box of Valentine tags from swaps the past few years, I regretted not having a swap this year. Next year, for sure!

This is the one I made for Jade (the little girl I babysit). I was so excited to find the heart with her name on it at the country store last week. It's the perfect touch! The background is from a paper tablecloth I found as a yard sale leftover last summer.

When a friend moved about five years ago, she asked if I could hold on to a few quilts/comforters for her. She never returned for them, and I can't seem to track her down. This quilt (machine stitched) is so ragged that I doubt it would make a good cutter, but it has such cute patterns that I thought I'd show them to you. By the way, if anyone wants it (or a part of it) for a cutter, let me know and you'll only have to pay postage!

Happy Valentine's Day.
Your little tag is so adorable.
The fabrics on the quilt are so neat. I love old fabric and try to buy them when i run across something I like.
That is very sweet to share the quilt. I will pass because I am not a crafter. I am sure someone will turn it into something great!

Lovely pieced top! Great texture and colors.

S said...

It's a toss-up; I can't decide if the Valentine or the quilt is the sweeter of the two.
