One last Valentine project..

I picked up this pattern by Little Bits about 2-3 years ago down in Amish Country. I had great intentions of making it but never did. So last week I pulled out my pastel wool and cut out the pieces.
I used my Go! cutter to die cut the circles on the penny tabs...I wish they had a tab cutter...I would buy that. I just love the accuracy of my wool circles as it made button hole stitching much easier. It was a real enjoyment hand stitching the words on the candy hearts.
I figure that if I keep at it everynight it will be done by Valentine's Day LOL. I am trying to look on the bright side that I will have it for next year's decor. That makes me happy.
Speaking of happy.  My husband is on his way home from Japan today...we all miss him. This trip was easier because we used Skype. It is free and totally cool.  The girls and I were able to talk to him and see him every day. Anyhow, back to work here :)

Sounds like you will be having a nice V-day, when your husband gets home! Skype is great. I talk to an "adopted" daughter in Poland all the time and others closer by so we can see each other!
