Happy (early) Valentine's Day!
I'm sharing several projects today in celebration of winter and Valentine's Day as part of the Fresh Snow blog hop. The purpose of the hop is to make something in celebration of winter or a winter holiday and use materials beyond just quilting cotton.
My heart sachets are filled with lavender. So nice!
My be my valentine mini was fun to put together. I am just in love with the shade of pink thread I used on the mini which finishes 10'' square.
Have you made a rope bowl yet? These are amazingly addictive to make. I'd purchased 100 ft of clothesline rope at my LQS years and years ago with the intent of making one of these bowls. I managed to make 4 bowls, all slightly different! Not sure why I waited so long - a cleanup of my quilting studio gave me the incentive to try one. (There are many rope bowl tutorials - this is the one I used.)
This oval shaped bowl is my favorite. It fits nicely next to my sewing machine and is keeping my seam ripper and small scissors right where I need them! I was fun switching out the thread color to add interest to the bowl.
For the heart filled basket, I wrapped some of the rope with fabric as I went.
