Love is in the Air

Hello Everyone,

The Holidays are over just in time to start getting ready for another special day....Valentine's Day.  I was searching the Internet for free vintage Valentine images and found this great one for a pillow center and immediately started picking out fabric and making the double flying geese.

While I was on the computer, I got an email from Lea over at Podunk Pretties  She sent me a image she created in EQ7 with a vintage valentine in the center using my Nostalgic Christmas pillow pattern.  This is just so cute with the polka dots and checks.  Love it!  I was so surprised that Lea and I were working on the exact same idea at the same time!  Great minds think alike.

I guess I'm going to have to rename the Nostalgic Christmas pillow pattern to Nostalgic Pillows.  While I was searching the Internet for free images, I found many for St. Patrick's Day, Easter, 4th of July.......
I save the images with a right hand mouse click, re-size them in a drawing program, then print them out on Printed Treasures fabric.  Works like a charm.

I'm off to my Sew'n Wild Oaks drop-in class this morning at In Between Stitches.  I can't wait to see the girls and see what they've been working on since we last met.  When I come home, I'm going to work on my pillows and get ready for Valentine's Day.



  1. We are finishing putting Christmas away today, but......I'm using the red candles I have all about and calling them my valentine candles....LOL Love the pillows.....

  2. I... must... stay... focused... not ... be ... tempted...

  3. Both projects are so beautiful! Love what you can create with the same framing idea. I am continuing to sew my Nostalgic Christmas blocks, taking my time,and enjoying them immensely!

  4. I'll say it again - I just love this pattern, Lynn! It suits any holiday for sure!
