hearts overflowing

Inspired by felt heart garlands seen on pinterest and here I also cut and stitched a colorful Valentine's Day garland for my mantle.



Cut lots of hearts from various color felt and stitch together in a long strip
Looks cheerful, doesn't it.

Cammie and her dear friend, Ada, whose Grammy just happens to be my dear friend!
I got to spend the day with these sugar-and-spice-and-everything-nice little girls.
No better way to brighten days of freezing temps, snow, ice, sleet, shoveling, school/work delays and early school closings.
My daughter, Jamie invited me along for delicious lunch at a diner and then some clearance rack shopping :)
I could suggest the reason I left the packaged-to-go, other half of my delicious Monte Cristo panini on the table when I left was because of this squeezable cherub. Yes, that's the reason ;)

Cute garland. I'm hoping to work on some hearts over the weekend. I am not a cold weather gal and these concrete buildings retain the cold so I am freezing at this very moment. I definitely could not live in a snowy area. Of course, my son who was born and raised in Kuwait is dealing with that now in the small town in Colorado where he goes to university. It is freezing cold at minus something there all the time. Lots of snow days it seems this year for lots of places. Fun to spend time with the little ones. Take care. Best wishes, Tammy

I've been looking at all the heart projects and thinking that they are just too complicated for the small amount of time I have at the end if every day. This one looks positively do-able and I could send one to my grandchildren! Thank you!

Those colours look good against the white mantle.
Love all the pictures, but the third last one is the best. Three faces squeezed in, all smiling and so natural.

What a lovely way to honor Valentine's Day :) The garland looks beautiful on your mantle and love those adorable faces!

Love the heart garland, just too cute and very happy looking!

What a fun lunch and I can certainly understand the distraction that your little cherub would cause. She is adorable!

Happy weekend!
