I really like hearts and I think for that reason alone, I like Valentines Day.

Hearts were punched and punched some more.  Hearts became confetti and thrown by the handful over and over again.  Hearts became part of the floor for the day.

I decided to start sewing these hearts to squares from hand-me-down jeans.  These are some of the hearts that Sarah cut for me.  I think the squares will be part of  a quilt - my first.

And from my sweetheart, dark chocolate and some art supplies - just perfect.

Wishing you a weekend full of love,


  1. What a thoughtful gift from your love! Great to be remembered as more than "just" mama...tuning in to what YOU really like to do! We had a denim quilt given to us when our baby was in the hospital...patches with decorative pockets from old jeans in all shades of fadedness are so interesting!

  2. A lovely gift. And you first quilt, exciting!

  3. sounds like a wonderful day! I love the idea of paper hearts on the floor all fun and festive. Walking on love! Have a great weekend!

  4. we've been having fun with heart punch-outs too! love all around! <3
