Hearts and Flowers

While strolling through Joanne's last week on yet another costume material run, I noticed all the Valentine's things were 70% off. Sold. The wreath now has a new do. The St. Patty's day stuff was also on sale so come March, I'll be ready.

My table runner that I made from Daddio's scraps is done.

It's rather plain. I was in such a hurry to get it finished that I never thought too much about the overall design. I could add some more applique. Next year.

 My towels are done ahead of schedule due to a major kerfluffle. My weaving friends will cringe when I say that my rear apron rod came untied and went crashing to the ground while I was halfway through my second towel. All the ends came off in a giant tangle. I think I had a minor heart attack.

One by one I got all those nasty ends back on but the fact that I was trying to squeeze out more than the warp was able to give was an issue I couldn't overcome. I ended up with a towel and a napkin. Oh, well. It could have been worse.

Happy Valentine's Day!!!


  1. Great shopping bargains, the table runner is just right! What a weaving disaster, but the towel/napkin set turned out beautifully! Ta-da!!!

  2. Even your scraps quilts come out amazing!
    I thought only crazy Chicago people put up wreaths for st pat's day. Im going to go all out for SPRING things when March 20 th arrives

  3. Pretty wreath!
    I think I'm going to skip the St. Pat's and go right for daffodils for my my next door decoration! I need some spring!

  4. Absolutely love those towels! What a fabulous woven pattern. Hope your Valentine's day was a great one!
