I have a little pro-yect

Valentine's Day is this weekend. Have I done a bunch of decorating for it? Not really. However, I was bopping around blogland and I found an old post and it kind of got my creative juices flowing. Kim over at the Daisy Cottage asked her readers to send her a heart to put in a big bowl she had. At first I thought it was kind of odd, but she showed some of the hearts she made and it got me thinking. First, how cute are these little hearts and second, how easy would this project be?
I have horrible crafting ADD. I can probably count on one hand the number of projects I have actually completed. The upside, however, is a stash of fabric and supplies on hand and ready to go when some hair brain idea hits. It was after midnight when I pulled out my sewing machine and some of my favorite fabric. I didn't have any "stuffing" so I wadded up paper napkins (no one will know right?) The project just took a few minutes and while it wasn't perfect ~ I liked it.
Inspired, I went to Joann's the next day to pick up some more fabric (I didn't have any good reds in my stash) and while I was there I stumbled across the burlap isle. Chris over at Just a Girl is a big fan of burlap. She uses it all over her house. I'll admit I was skeptical, but when I saw a bolt and picked it up, inspiration struck. It was soft and just had that nice neutral quality. Finally I "got it". So I picked some up along with a couple of other fun fabrics. I have the house to myself tonight and I plan on doing a little Valentine sewing. Nothing fancy, but it will be fun.
