We do not follow football so it is just another Sunday to us. My husband spent his afternoon trimming trees in the back yard. As for me, I spent the day sewing.
So, I have a question for you....do you still decorate for Valentines day after you Retired?
For me, I don't know if you want to call it decorating but I enjoy changing some things up with the Holidays, yes, even Valentines day. Like silk flowers, candles, centerpieces, wall hangings and table toppers. I had a Valentines topper for our Dining room table, but needed one for my table in my quilt room.
I wanted something small and simple. So I started by making hearts in assorted Batic fabrics,
Then I cut a large circle and arranged them in a circle.
I wanted to keep this simple, so I cut another circle for backing and batting.
(Gee, I think I am boring my partner, lol)
I sewed right sides together all around the edges. Then made a little slit in the center of the back to turn right sides out.
I pressed, appliquéd it by machine and quilted it.
For the back, I made a small appliqué heart to cover the slit where I turned it around.
Not fancy, but it looks good to me.
It even matches the mug rug I made earlier:
It was a fun afternoon project. I have so many things I am doing, but sometimes it is fun to be able to start and finish a project in one day.
Hope you all had a fun day, whether sewing or watching the Super Bowl.
Till next time,
HAPPY QUILTING EVERYONE!!
