Valentine Birds ...

Our family has been going through so many changes for the past few months. Plans that we thought were going to happen soon look like may take longer than we thought.  So I wait. I've mentioned before how impatient I am. I don't like change and I don't like waiting, but I am trying.

I made my way through boxes and bags in my sewing room and set up my machine and sewed. It felt so good to sew. And boy is it ever faster than hand sewing!? (though I still love hand sewing)

I made this little Valentine wall hanging. Isn't it sweet? I've had the idea swirling around in my head but didn't think I'd be able to make it with my machine packed up. All I can say id God bless these people! hahaha! I love my machine! Really. LOVE.

I used red and white Baker's Twine as a little hanger. I really like that and think I'll use it again for wall hangings.

For the back I used one of my favorite prints. I just love this one.The binding is some fabric I had left over from making stockings for a Christmas dolly.

I'm keeping this one but I think I'll make one similar for the shop. 

Have a great day!

Waiting is so so hard. I guess for me, the hardest part is trying to be grateful in the midst of waiting. You know as opposed to grumbling to the man upstairs. Ahem.

Beautiful work as always. It's nice not to sit around twiddling one's thumbs while waiting. :)
