Have a Heart or Two....

Hello friends!...... This morning while I was drinking my morning coffee, (cup #2) I finished up the hand sewing on these sweet little Valentines, attached the tulle hangers and last but not least added the bias tape bows and pink paper roses. I started the hearts a couple of days ago. Generally I save the hand sewn portions of my projects for evenings in front of the TV but this week I was very busy and never watched much TV. So this morning it was on my TO DO list and I did it and crossed them off my list.

I love hearts as many of you already know, so Valentine's Day is one of my favorite days of the year! I have some smaller hearts cut out for some heartstrings that I hope to hang in my dining room. I may work on them later tonight. I also have a few more of these hearts to complete and hope to finish them over the weekend. Some I will be using in my home and some will make their way to my ETSY shop.

Do you celebrate Valentine's Day, decorate the house, make a special meal, decorate cookies? When the kids were home I used to do a lot more in terms of decorating, baking.....I have noticed many decorated sugar cookies showing up on Pinterest and Facebook etc and it has really gotten me in the mood to bake. I love to make heart-shaped sugar cookies and glaze them in various shades of pink and red. They always look so pretty on a platter with some pretty paper doilies underneath. I may bake up a couple batches over the weekend and toss them in the freezer to decorate later. Why not?

Hope this finds you all warm and well. I have been chilled to the bone and will probably remain that way until April or May when we get some nice, warm weather! All in all, I cannot complain about this winter. Though we have had several snowstorms, the snowfall has not been overwhelming and prior to the last snowstorm, most of the snow on the ground had melted. BUT I do look forward to spring! I just keep telling myself, every day is one day closer to spring!

Have a lovely weekend friends!
