It's still February right ?

It's still February right? (Kind of hard to tell sometimes since it seems like we're having April weather !) ANYHOW, since the calendar says it's still February ...(and Leap Day tomorrow even gives us one extra February day this year).... the MBIAJ Sewing and Quilting Dept feel it's not too late to show the finally finished .....

....Valentine Garland , made with ......

....wool felt and burlap (with yo yo's made out of a cotton pin dot fabric.)

....the burlap was a little tricky to work with, so I ended up just leaving freezer paper on the back of it and sewed right through the burlap and freezer paper onto the white wool felt backing piece. The red wool felt hearts are fused onto the burlap with a heavy fusible web .... the yo yo's are stitched on by hand through the hearts and burlap .

OK ..... this year's Valentine's Day decoration DONE ! Bring on the next holiday ! (St Patrick's Day ...... not sure if I feel like doing a shamrock garland .... but maybe the mood will strike at the last minute .... you never know !)

P.S. I'm linking up with Today's Creative Blog

Be back soon!
