Getting Ready for Valentine's Day

I got a chance to do a little bit of tatting so I made up a couple of Valentine Heart Bookmarks.  The first is from a very pretty design by Irene Woo.  I tatted it in thread that is shades of pink then added a cord with a coordinating motif on the end.

Motif # C3-3:


The next one is a white lace heart which surrounds a red paw print in the middle.  I thought this was a great design by Heather Johnston to show some pet love :-)

Motif # C3-4


They both can be found in my Peachtree Cottage Etsy Shop - http://PeachtreeCottage.etsy.com

Quilled Card

The last few days I've been working on this card for my daughter.  She hit a major milestone today and I wanted to give her a special 'congrats' card....so I made one with a quilled butterfly.  It's in her favorite colors (pink and black) and while it's simple I think it came out very well.


Not too bad for my first attempt at quilling other than making the basic shapes!

Happy New Year!

Whew! Last minute sales and orders right before Christmas, along with the typical holiday activities, kept me from getting much new work done. I'm hoping to get off to a good start this year!



Hope Everyone is having a Wonderful New Year!
