Another Valentine Pillow

I know it's not Valentines anymore but I can never keep up with the actual holidays.
I do finish what I intend for the holiday but never in time.
I still have my Valentine decor displayed because I have not finished all my spring pillows.
Also, I am trying to repair my badly damaged flower beds from the frost we had in December.
I really want the beds to look good in November for my daughter's wedding.
I purchased the embroidery design for the pillow here
I love this embroidery site.The Heart design is like a crazy quilt design. I purchased the crazy quilt pattern from them but being that my machine will only make the 5x5 block, I will have to make a ton of them to even make a quilt. Times like this, I wish I would have purchased a machine with a larger hoop capacity.

Cute idea and a very nice pillow. I'm with you, I wish I could have got a larger designer area also. Maybe next time.

My theory is...hearts are appropriate at any time....so no problem for those decorations to still be out and about in your house now! Good luck with the garden restoration, too.

I wanted to thank you for taking the time to enter my Sew Mama Sew Giveaway. It was so crazy with so many blogs to visit that I don't think very many of us really had a chance to really take a good look at the blogs we visit. So I would like to invite you to come back and look around and see if you like my blog; and if you do, consider signing up as a follower and/or putting my blog on your blog roll so that you can keep up with me better. I would also encourage you to visit my daughters' blogs. Emily, Age 9, of Super Stitches www.sewingsister.blogspot.com and Kimberly, Age 17, of What To Wear www.w0wiloveit.blogspot.com

By the way, you have a lovely blog. That pillow is amazing.

I looking forward to hearing from you.

I just love your pillows....and who care what season it is, you will have it ready for next year.

Would love to see pictures of your flower beds...

Hi B. Thanks for the link. I think I'm going to purchase the hearts.
BTW...the towels are all mailed off.

Adorable pillow Betsy! It has such cheerful colors too.

Vivian said...

Oh, my, you sound just like me. I can't ever get things finished in time for the holiday. I see your blog from yesterday talks about getting ahead for Christmas. I, too, think about Christmas all year around. Not necessarily making gifts, but new things to decorate with.
