Hearts and Flowers

February is the month of love, and there is plenty about my life to love at the moment. I love the fact that I finally dusted off my sewing machine again, and I love the fact that I have completed one thing from my February to do list already.
My hearts and flowers postcards are done. If you have been reading my blog for a while you know that I've made hundreds of postcards in the past, but none for a while.
I started out with a scrap of felt and cut out some simple hearts.
The hearts then got needle felted, by hand, sadly I still haven't been able to afford to treat myself to an embellisher machine - it's still on my wish list though :)
The pink scraps from my 'new projects' post the other day then got put to use, and so did my sewing machine. After scraping off the thick layer of dust, I just about remembered how to thread it up! :) The finished cards look something like this.
It was great making a few of these mini creations again, like visiting an old friend :)

Just gone through your blog Hearts and Flowers and found it awesome. What a wonderful combination of hearts and flower.

I love your post cards. I have made and sent one. I like the idea of making a postcard to send instead of buying one.
