Happy Valentines to all you Lovely Peeps!

Hmmm Valentines day is an interesting one isn't it.  Not sure I really go for one day of showing you care out of the whole year!! Saw this this morning on facebook and it kind of sums that up!

And it works both ways ladies!  Want to know the origins of Valentines Day then you can check it out here.

Here are a couple of Valentine-ish  projects that I thought I would share with you today!  Both stay out all year round in our house!  First up is this pretty Tree of Hearts Cushion Cover.  The hearts and tree trunk are appliquéd onto the background fabric.  I have then quilted around the hearts and trunk and quilted some heart shaped flowers along the bottom edge.  It's an old project that I did a few years ago, still love it and it still sits on our couch!

Second up is the Hearts Burlap Bunting that I think I shared a few weeks ago as I made it into a pattern/tutorial for sale.

The Crafty Nomad Hearts Burlap Bunting

Loving the rustic look that burlap, or hessian as we call it here in the UK, gives.

Here's a closer look at those flags.

Anyhow, hope you have a lovely Valentine's Day, whatever you do.
