Not Quite Right............hearts that is

Here are the latest additions (with subtractions already having happened, yay!) for sale in my Etsy shop.

I haven't been able to hold a needle for awhile now and when I found I could again.....well I wanted to bring my "childhood" love for handmade Valentoonies to life again. I love sewing on paper, whether by hand or on the machine. It's how I taught myself to sew, embroider, cross stitch etc. I was sitting one night sewing the edging on the hearts and remarking how I love the sound of the string being drawn through the paper....my husband said that didn't sound "quite right". tee hee. So thus the name. I've been accused of not being quite right many times.....it's a compliment. And so was born and launched the "not quite right" heart collection.

I hope you will enjoy them.

They are lovely! So happy you can do what you love again, I know that feeling. When my shoulder hurts so much that I can't write, I feel terrible.

And I soooo understand the "not quite right" part. Every time my Piano Man reads one of my more twisted tales he says "The love of my life has the sickest of minds." I say, "Thanks honey, you are the best!"
