i had a chance on monday to take some pics of the beautiful fabric hearts that i received from my sweet friend danielle‘s valentine swap. i’m pretty sure these are just going to stay out all year long, i can’t bear to pack them away. isn’t the detailing beautiful?!
in other news i’m still (OMBob, can you believe it??!?) working on the studio but i think another hour or so then i’ll be done. whee! bout time too because i leave in three weeks for artfest and am determined to get a project that has been neglected for too many months finished before i go. wish me luck!!
i recently participated with a few other beautiful ladies in a fabric heart valentines swap that my amazing friend danielle hosted (picture is her’s). some of you may have seen some sneak peeks from my instagram feed a few weeks ago as i was working on these. three vintage cutter quilt heart pieces (i used the backing) stuffed with batting and hanging from twisted wire + lace, doilies and vintage mercury glass beads make me happy. checking out what all of the other ladies made makes me swoon.
i just got back from a much needed girl’s weekend with my friend beth. i feel inspired, excited and super tired. ;) i have SO much to share with all of you this week, i feel like it’ll be nothing more than a SF weekend recap all week but i know you’ll want to hear all about it.
highlights : the view of the ferry building from the hotel terrace in the embarcadero was amazing (see above). the farmers market on saturday. the salvage yard where i scored the cutest old bookcase with a vintage window door for $30 (beth, you need a truck next time!!) and the piles of pink chippy wood trim. the beet salad & caramelized onion/garlic pizza pie we had for lunch in north beach. the 1811 linen parchments i scored at the most amazing shop in a north beach back street for $1 each. i know!! the best seafood resturant ever. the alameda flea market.
the only sad moment? realizing i didn’t spend nearly enough time talking with other girl friends we saw at the flea and realizing i didn’t see one at all. guh.
thank goodness it was just what i needed.
