DSCN0061Now that I am a survivor I seem to be using a lot of pink. I have always liked pink and there is a good reason for making a pink quilt.

A former co-worker and his wife have just had a baby girl and because I have such a stash of pink fabric this is a good time to make good use of it.

The quilt might look something like this, or it may  look totally different depending on how creative I feel when I work on it.

No, this is not my home. It belongs to our #1 (first born) daughter.

She is a very talented person and loves to decorate for the different holidays.  In fact, she is the one that should have a blog, but she says time is an issue.

So I’m borrowing her pictures so that I can post something pretty today, since my decorations consist only of vinyl heart stickers on my kitchen window.

Enjoy your day!♥♥♥♥

If you have signed up for Pinterest, you know that you can spend lots of time on the site, sometimes wasting your free time; unless you’re looking for ideas, then you don’t feel so guilty browsing and browsing.

I found this idea for a heart pillow on Pinterest and decided to try it.  This is a great idea since there is no sewing involved, so anyone can do this.

Using my old newspaper heart pattern, I cut out my fleece heart.

Then I cut  1 1/2 inch long strips along the edges, making sure the front and back are together at all times while you are cutting the strips.

Once the strips are cut, you begin to tie double knots all around the heart leaving a small section untied to stuff the pillow.

If I decide to make another pillow, I’ll cut the strips 2 inches long, making it easier to tie the knots.

Thanks for stopping by!♥♥♥♥

 

It does take a little patience to tie all the knots.♥
