Some More Valentines

Saturday was the first snowfall of the season!! 
It was the perfect day to stay at home and work on some Valentine crafts..
Here are just a few that I made...

This was yet another in ...  Ah'Hem.... a series of Valentine Tussie Mussie's 
that I have been working on for my swap.  

I used a beautiful white lace and pleated cotton for the base. Then I ruffled some red / white polka dot tulle. I made the medallion by cutting out a fabric trim with hearts and a cherub and added a satin ruffle around it! 

I had this beautiful pink rosette fabric that I wasn't sure what to do with so I made some mini pink pillows... They just came out so darling!!

I altered this image of little people 
and printed them on fabric.. Then added vintage trinkets and lace..

I made these Valentine ornaments out of card stock and added vintage dyed lace all around, then I cut out some more vintage fabric hearts and finished them with fabric rosettes... 

I made this purse out of a piece of chenille and added plush damask heart and silk wings. I used a burlap strap for the strap and added a floral rosette with a vintage rhinestone pin. 

I went out of my usual very safe box and had some fun stitching some crazy stitches all over this heart.  
I think it came out kinda neat...

I'm on my iPad so forgive my short comment. I'm lying in bed.
I adore all of your sweet valentines Cheryl. You sure know how to capture my attention.
I've always wanted a tusie. I hope that's how to spell it. If you decide to sell them, let me know. I would buy one in a heartbeat, even if you snail mailed it, lol.
Oh those mirrors of mine.... They really are just tiny ones. You can only see your face, nothing else below the belt!!
It's raining here too, but the snow won't be gone oh no.
I guess I'm doing ok for lying here, lol. Thanks for coming on my walk on the river with Pepper and I.
Are you still eating healthy?? I've been thinking about you. I hope you are on your way. Remember im your cheerleader.
Love you
Love me
