Bored, but then....

Like a good girl I've been trying hard not to use my injured hand very much, and allow the tendonitis to settle. But...even good girls get bored.
Last night I decided to make my very first Tilda Heart, from the Sew Pretty Homestyle book. It seemed silly to use the machine for such a little thing so I hand stitched the whole heart and in the process got hooked!
Today I'll start choosing fabrics for many more Tilda hearts.
I'd like to hang them on the bathroom cabinet doors, perhaps filled with lavender for that sweet, relaxing fragrance. In fact I think every door could use something nice to adorn it, maybe not all Tilda hearts, but something similar.
I've got some lovely felt that would look good used this way...hmmmm.


Have you made one?

God bless!

I have the same book as well! I'm making the teddy bear in pink and cream stripes. Your heart is so cute.
