This morning, after having a leisurely cup of coffee and some toast, I decided to start working on the second Tisket-A-Tasket BOM. I actually selected the fabric last night and this morning I traced and cut out the pattern pieces and am ready to begin the appliqueing. I decided that since I did the snowman in wool on the first block that I would carry on with wool somewhere in each of the remaining blocks. This month it'll be the hearts which I'll cut out when the rest of the elements are in place. I hope to get a good piece of this done today...famous last words, huh?
A few of you asked if I could show more pictures of my Valentine decorating and I'd be pleased to since my DH thinks it's all junk (horrors!) and a waste of time. This photo shows my red glass collection, heart garland and a heart pillow in the trencher that I made from an old disintegrating (which broke my heart) red and white quilt purchased at an auction for $5.And a closer look. Can you see the heart-shaped bottles? The third bottle from the left is also heart-shaped but you can't tell from the photo. There's also a little red heart-shaped candle resting on a tin heart in the left corner which you can barely see.
Next is a closeup of my vintage valentines.
And more...are you getting bored yet?
And one last view.
