Valentine Heart Completed

Felted Hearts 008

Done! I made a bunch of these…on some I added a wire hanger, on others I added a loop to hang them on a cabinet knob. This one didn’t get anything yet. I’ve also made up six kits that will be for sale at the yarn shop when I teach my class. Phew! A lot of work and thought goes into making a kit! I still have to write the instructions for this heart but I’ve made labels and gotten most of the supplies included. So much to think about!!

I also thought you might get a kick out of seeing where I do most of my crafting. Other bloggers have shown their spaces and I’m always fascinated! Well, I snuggle up on that chaise at the end of the couch. The swing-arm of the lamp has a full-spectrum bulb in it (thanks Julie!) and that keeps the colors of thread and roving “true”. I just got the couch from a neighbor this week. I lost my previous crafting chair during the couch switch with no pictures to show where I spent hours and hours in the evenings…bummer. It looks pretty clean now but usually I’m surrounded by bits of wool roving and snips of thread.

I have a plastic bin under the end table that I keep my roving in (it pushes back all the way when I want it to) and I’ve commandeered part of the top shelf of the cabinet the swan sits on. The game table you see to the right is also a great place to craft or set up the laptop. I have to repaint the whole room soon. And after I’m done re-hang the pictures. This couch is taller than our old one. And the next project I tackle is to make some pillows for the couch…I haven’t sewn in a long time. Just in case you’re curious my husband’s recliner and another end table is to the left of the couch. So even though I have an office and a craft area in the basement I find myself always crafting either in the living room or at the kitchen table. I give up trying to change. :) I just try to clean up after myself better…

Happy Crafting!!

Your heart is so pretty and perfectly shaped! Nice to be able to picture you at work (or play, as the case may be. :))
