Happy (Belated) Valentine's Day!

I made some hearts for the little sweeties in my life (Kayla, Haley, and Zack).

I conveniently got sick before Valentine's Day and this was the perfect project for recuperating. I used absurdly expensive wool felt from PurlSoho. I'm not sure I'll ever be able to use craft felt again. I'm not a huge fan of hand stitching, but these were small and simple enough that they were fun to make.

I made a mouse for one of my wall boxes. It took me back to my folk art days when I was doing shows. I REALLY enjoyed only having to do one instead of a dozen. Made me wonder how I ever got all that stuff done. Do I miss it, you ask? Not one little bit. I am concerned about myself tho as I find I have named the mouse and am making up stories about his adventures. Stay alert! I may need an intervention.

These are Oliver's Valentine present. Made out of polar fleece. Don't worry, they are not as long as this photo makes them appear.

This project was done at Christmas time and makes me smile whenever I catch a glimpse of her sparkling in the sunlight, which hasn't been all that often in EA this winter. I got to use some stuff from my stash. The idea came from a magazine, maybe Cloth Paper Scissors...
That's all I've got for now. Oh wait! I made a pair of cropped pants out of brown knit and they seem to have turned out OK. Will let you know after I get to wear them.
