it's nearly bed time here...
i had a slow start to the day,
you know how it is
when it's a little cold
and sleep is interrupted,
then in the morning
it's just hard to get started.
then this afternoon
i went out for coffee with a friend, crystal,
it was a bit warmer
and the coffee perked me up.
then in the early evening mr m and i did a bit of grocery shopping.
of course it is getting late now,
but after my slow start
i'm fully awake now and don't need to sleep!
in a few minutes
i will drag this body to bed
so that tomorrow
i am not even more perversely affected
and end up staying up all night????
i recently thought
that instead of sending my local friends cards,
i would make hearts for them...
that they could hang on their trees
or their door handles
or on their walls...
these are quick and easy to make...
several can be made in a couple of hours
and are lots of fun too.
fussy cut the fronts...
you don't have to be as precise with the backs...
add a couple of vintage buttons to the centre,
they will disguise where the ribbon goes into the heart
where sometimes there will be
a little pucker
where the ribbon doesn't sit quite straight.
using zig zag stitching
around the outside of the heart
just gives it a bit of a tweaky look
finishes the edges nicely.
i've attempted a couple of mug rugs too
but i'm a bit of a novice
when it comes to the borders
i'm not entirely happy with the ones i've completed so far.
practice makes perfect
so they say...
if kootoyoo will have me
i'm joining in,
so come 'n see
what others are doing
and have a lovely day!
