Another snow/sew day.  Since I couldn’t get to the shop to take any pictures I thought I’d show you what I’ve been doing.  Above is the Bursting Heart that Blue Susan Makes showed you how to make here.  I didn’t follow her instructions exactly. 
I did a lot of auditioning and rearranging.  I don’t do the fusing method enough to really understand it, (read that I'm afraid of it) so I just made my freezer paper templates.
 I did read in the instructions that the heart grows larger as it “bursts.”  That happened to me and it outgrew my pillow form.  That's why it is not as "bursting" as I wanted it to be.  I kept scrunching it down to fit the form.  Then I just gave up.  Now I think I’ll turn it into a table topper.  Chris has some darling Valentine’s fabrics in the shop so I’m anxious to get up there and finish this project.  Why don't you drop by too and pick up some new fabric and make this project now?  You can have it completed and waiting for you to display next February.

  • The Q and U has a charming block.  You’ll want to try it too.
  • Also, did you see that Vickie Ferguson (on sidebar) has a link to a new food storage guide.  A must in every home.  Check it out. 
 Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

Yup, I picture this is what your heart will look like when you are finally able to burst through the front door and get out of the house!
