Happy Sunday! I hope your weekend has been a good one. I went to get new glasses yesterday. The last time I went was a real nightmare so I put off going again as long as I could. This time I went to an eye store which included the exam. So far it has been a much better experience and I found out that the doctor I saw last time was crazy. I don't need plugs in my eyes. I am just glad I didn't agree with what he said. Hopefully this new prescription will be more helpful too since I have been having problems with dizziness again. I have to wait 7-10 days to get them but will post photos when I do.
Today I want to share a couple of new projects with you. I am really into hearts right now. I have been wanting to make an iris folded heart card like the other iris folded cards I made last year for awhile now and thought this was the perfect time to do so. This is what I came up with.
This time I used this template. The patterned paper is from the Candy Cane Lane paper pack I didn't add a tag this time. Instead I stamped the Love sentiment from Tiny Tags and added to the middle. I finished it off with sweet blush ribbon tied in a bow, a Hawaiian Shores button, and machine stitching.
Keeping with the heart theme I also made this.
I have been wanting to make a heart pincushion for awhile now too. I made this one with a a combination of fabric and felt. I started by piecing together three fabrics I had in my stash then I added ric rac that I made with the PTI ric rac die and Hibiscus felt. I rotated the fabric then cut the heart out with a Nestability heart die using my Vagabond. After sewing it up I added a loop of pure poppy satin ribbon to the top so it can be hung, then I attached a Pure Poppy bow and a white button. Finally I finished it off with some white baby pom pom trim. Here is a photo of the back
I hope to make more of these in different patterns and colors. I also have some ideas for felt ones too. I hope to make some of those soon and when I do I will share them with you.
One more thing I want to share with you before I go. Emilia and I have really gotten into using Instagram. I have challenged myself to take a photo a day to help document the year. If you follow me on Twitter you can see them there but I will also be sharing some of those photos here on my blog too. Today I want to share this photo Emilia took of our fur baby Lily. I love how it came out. I had just given her a bath. Unfortunately she doesn't stay that white for very long though.
That's all for now. I will be back soon with more to share. I hope the rest of your weekend is a great one and as always thanks for stopping by.
