Stitched & Stuffed Paper Hearts

Valentine's Day is my favorite holiday, but not for reasons you might think.  Though I am fond of chocolate and flowers and romantic dinners, it's all about the simple shape of a heart.  To me, it's not just a shape, it's a statement and a feeling.  No other shape conveys a message like a heart.  Coupled with fiery reds and soft pinks.....Valentine's Day just makes me happy.  Whether I've been in a relationship (or not) when this holiday rolls around, the fact that we take time to celebrate love always fills my heart.  Celebrate love, my friends, and don't forget to

  1. Wonderful! My 7yr. Old granddaughter is staying with me this weekend. I wanted a project to teach her blanket stitch. Needless to say she is a big crafter. Thanks for this idea and just in time for Valentine's!

    1. It's a terrific stitch to learn when you're a kid. It gives tons of self confidence when you see your work coming to life.
