Fabric hearts

There's something very theraputic about making lavender hearts. I love the smell of the lavender, but I also love choosing the ribbons and buttons to embellish each one. I spent a lovely morning this week doing just that, having pre-made a number of hearts ready for embellishment.

I make batches of them for a local shop, and she always loves the fact I make them all different. I think I'd get bored if I didn't. Sometimes I use applique, but those take much more time.

Others are pretty enough without applique...

This time the postcard fabric was my absolute favourite, though the cats came a close second.

But they all looked very pretty.

And they are now on display in my local shop. A job well done, I think.
