Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!
 I'm going to spend it with my husband Bill! with a  train ride to get to his place, it will all be worth it... having him at the other end, waiting for me. :-)

Here's a bit of homemade themed Valentine, warming the house right now.
This year's new wreath addition, paper pieced hearts held together with string, beads & cinnamon sticks. 
 The pattern was from the newsletter Loose Threads from  Quilter`s Connection Magazine, called Cinnamon Hearts Hanging Wreath.
 I just tied it to the inside of the Christmas wreathe that I left on the door & voila!

 The February block from the Tisket Tasket BOM from Bunny Hill. This is the appliqued version...
 and this is the embroidered version of the same pattern all done in red & white.
 I enjoyed this project a few years ago & leave it out on a vintage highchair year round.
 This is one of my pleading purchases with my husband. It's a red, handmade ceramic basket that you place in the oven at 350' for 15 mins. Then place a napkin inside with your warm buns to keep them warm while everyone comes to the table. I`ve never seen anything like it.
It was the colour of I thought I would share this new find with you.
Happy Valentines everyone! :-)
