Baby, it's cold outside! They're registering our wind chill at twenty-five degrees below zero today - so I'm really glad for those big snow drifts blocking our road.. it means I can't go out! I guess I'll stay in the house where it's nice and warm and keep plugging away at making candles : )
I'm a bit candle crazy these days.... so many things to consider - and recipes to get "just right". But I haven't forgotten about the sweet day approaching soon and I'm getting ready for it!
Everybody needs a pretty place to park their Valentines, don't they?
I went to my scrap heap and found some material I thought would work well and started cutting out hearts. I had no idea what they would become, so I just winged it.
Of course I had to "antique" the striped ticking material (that's become another obession!) because I just love the grubby, old look. I simply layered the hearts and used crochet thread (I think that's what it's called) to sew them together creating two pockets.
I also made myself a little Valentine - just in case I don't get any.
Now it's back to making candles - a nice occupation for a horribly cold day!
