Handmade Valentine's Day

I thought I'd share my Valentine's Day decor on the blog this year. Remember my "Sewing for the Seasons" theme in 2014... well, Valentine's Day was the only season I truly nailed before my sewing mo-jo turned into organizing/decluttering mo-jo. It has been so fun to put my quilted items out this month and I also have some items to share that were found last spring.

Our living room is a very cheerful place filled with pink & red!
My Valentine's Plus Quilt is one of my favorite makes from last year and I would love to make another one (or two) because it's such a great pattern to show off fun fabrics.
My little table of love.
In our dining room I have more touches of pink & red on the table
and on our china cabinet.
I went through a Crazy Quilting obsession a few years back and these items are from that era. The quilted Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) are from an online swap in 2008 through the HGTV Quilting Forum. Aren't they fun? I was thrilled to find them tucked into a random box last spring - I had forgotten all about them.
These little pillows were made by me. Crazy Quilting is wonderful because it mixes several of my favorite things - fabric, lace, trims, beads and embroidery.
I do plan to pick it up again once my UFO Collection gets under control. Of course there are some UFOs in my Crazy Quilting bins waiting for me. The story of my life!
It's VERY cold outside today but the sun is shining and my quilting room is calling my name. We will be celebrating the day with friends at a late dinner which I'm looking forward to. Have a great weekend everyone!
