Lonely hearts.............

Well, while digging for embellishments for the FELT heart pins, I found some great scraps of vintage cottons and upholstery fabric, so they worked fine for these little heart-shaped sachet pillows.............
I especially love the ones made from the old rose fabric with tan/beige backgrounds.......some hearts are weirdly-shaped and some have little pockets that will have little "somethings" tucked into them.........(yet to be decided)! This could take awhile...........I seem to get sidetracked from one project to another when I'm digging into stashes that I haven't been in for a year or more........anybody else do that? Now I'm back today working with the felt; gotta go practice my blanket stitch for edging and I cannot for the life of me get started without looking it up in one of my embroidery books! Duh. I've only been doing hand-embroidery since I was 16 years old. This is why we seniors need a BIG supply of reference books, right?!! Heh, heh....

Hmmm, you have me thinking here...I have this big bag of lavender, and lots of material, and hmmmm, what would it be like to stuff a bunch of that lavender inside a heart?
