Heart Love

I have a thing about hearts, always I mean not just because it's Valentines Day,  I am collector of hearts and have them hanging up all over my home. 

I have had the urge to create fabric hearts for some time now, but although I do love sewing and have dabbled on and off through the years I'm not that great at it and I always end up doing battle with my sewing machine read here so these hearts were to be mostly hand sewn. I think the thing that really pushed me was Aldi were selling fabulous fat quarters for a great price.  I bought two! I have never bought a fat quarter in my life I have to say this is certainly a venture into the unknown I can see a stash of fabric gracing my home alongside the yarn stash before very long.

I even got out the embroidery threads and had fun sewing little designs on to some of them....




What do you think? I hope that you have noticed I even tried a patchwork one there 😊



These have been gifted already the pink one for a friend on her birthday and the other to a special male friend, we don't do Valentines Day but just to show him I care.

I will be gifting another one today to a friend who is recovering from an operation. Hearts can say so much don't you think? I'm just getting started I think that there will be lots more fabric hearts in my future.

Happy Valentines Day to you all! xx

  12. I totally agree, hearts for all year round!
    I had no idea Aldi have fat quarters sometimes. I often pick up wool in there, they don't have it in often but when they do the quality and price is great. I need to look out for fabric too obviously! Thanks for the tip and the pretty ideas.

  14. If I hadn't read earlier that you and sewing don't really like each other, I would've thought you had been sewing all your life. Each and every one of your hearts are so pretty. Love the embroidery you have stitched too. I think you sell yourself far too short, lovely Linda. These hearts are beautiful.
