VANILLA SUGAR CHALLENGE - HANGING HEARTS x

Hello from a pretty white Cornwall!  Thought we weren't going to get any more but I woke to white stuff this morning.....again haha

As its the 1st February its time for another VANILLA SUGAR....Sweetly Handmade CHALLENGE for you.  The object of these challenges is to make gifts for friends, family & home....or in my case a bid to get some Christmasing out of the way ahead of time hahaha!  The theme this month is

HANGING HEARTS

Please, please pop over to the blog to see what has been made.  There is a huge variety of hearts using so many different techniques its a joy to look at!!!  Here are mine...


I have one of those hanging elephant strings and have wanted a heart one for ages so I made my own!  Each heart is about 2inches long.  I would have made it longer but I only had a few scraps of the fabric I used!  I think I shall be making more of these in different colours!


This one is a large wooden heart that I got for 20p in a charity shop!  The paper is by Creative Imaginations and has gorgeous love birds over it as well as hearts & text.  The pic is one my daughter took while hubby & I sneaked a quick kiss under her misteltoe at Christmas :)


Again...do pop over to have a look at the DT work as its really lovely.  Hope you get a chance to join in this one.  Its a MONTHLY challenge so plenty of time.  Thank you for looking today & I hope you are all warmer than me! HUGS XXX

Smashing ideas Karen. I have something or other hanging from most doorknobs and sticky out things at home (!) the hearts would be in good company.....hmm, must check out some scraps.
