Heartfelt decorating

Although I have been working away at a couple of projects, I have not had any finishes to share with you in what seems to me like ages. There is a little quilt from my UFO stack which I have been hand quilting but it seems to be taking so long to finish. I am just being very impatient with myself so I decided yesterday that I needed to set my quilt UFO aside just for a day so I could make something I have been wanting to do.


If you read my other blog, you will know that I had been working on redecorating the guest room (alias my mother's bedroom). I have had fun working on things for this room. Recently, I found this adorable little white rack at a garden center. I 'antiqued' it by rubbing some furniture wax on it and finally had Jos hang it for me last night.


I have been wanting to make some fabric hearts from one of the Tilda books for some time thinking I would hang them on doors or dresser knobs. This rack was a perfect place to hang these hearts so I opened my stash cupboard and got started. Here are the results of an afternoon's sewing.


You can click on the photos to enlarge them and see the hearts even better.

I love your hearts Heidi, and they look so pretty with the little details you have added! I'm surprised your mother isn't on a plane to Holland as nice and cozy as "her" room looks!

Nancy said...

Well, I totally approve. The rack and the cute little cloth hearts are a very pretty addition to my room. You swapped the quilt too I see. It is about finished now I think.
Love you, Mom

What a lovely room! It was absolutely worth putting the UFO down to make those adorable little hearts. I'd love to sleep in that room - it is so inviting!

Hi Heidi,

Loveley hearts you made. And I don't remember seeing that quilt on your mother's bed. Is it new? I LOVE the fabrics!

Have a nice day & hugs, Carolien

Heidi,
The quilt, the bedroom, the wall hanging and those hearts are just wonderful! You've inspired me on the hearts too. Near our entry ways (upper and lower) we are going to be installing hooks/pegs for coats, bags, etc. and I think having a few of those hearts scattered within would be a wonderful touch. I've missed ya Miss Heidi!!

Your hearts are so cute and only an afternoon to make them? You keep on inspiring me!!! Now only if my afternoons weren't filled with chores, dinner to make and all of the other tid bits tucked inside each hour.
