I'm getting a little bit addicted to these papercuts. They're so satisfying to do and I love how the bright background colour transforms them when they're finished. The fact that they're hearts makes them the perfect Valentine's day craft project too!
Seeing as I can't seem to stop doing them I've decided to give one away! If you'd like to win this little papercut heart, head over to my Facebook page for details on how to enter.
This is another flowery heart I cut this week. If you'd like to get your mitts on it, it's for sale for £25 + p&p. Pop by my Facebook page and drop me a message if you'd like to buy it :)
Now, remember those fabric scraps from my Auntie that I told you about last week? Well, I had a go at crazy quilting. I was unprepared for how much brain power it takes to sew the pieces down in order! It's like some sort of complicated mathematical equation!
Here's how it turned out. I would have liked the outer pieces to have been shorter and fatter, but for some reason I kept needing to add longer bits to cover up the previous pieces' edges. If anyone has any tips on how to prevent this I'd be very grateful.
Nevertheless, I like how it turned out. I think it looks like sea (on the left), hills (on the right) and a fiery red sunset sky. Though that could be just my imagination!
I'm going to carry on and do a bit of embroidery over the top to give it some more interest. Then it will have pride of place on the wall!
Speaking of seaside views, Sam and I went to Clovelly yesterday. The weather was a little temperamental but a shower of rain was a good excuse for a hot chocolate in the pub!
Don't they look like little, painted model houses!
The last creative thing I did this weekend was bake a cake! It's certainly not the prettiest looking thing, but it does taste good! We've almost demolished the whole lot between us and the little that's left I'm sure we'll finish off with a cup of tea tonight!
I bought the sprinkles on offer after Christmas! Always looking out for a good bargain, me!
And on that scrummy note, that's it for another week! Don't forget, if you'd like to win my handmade papercut heart, head over to my Facebook page to enter my giveaway.
Today I'm linking up to the following link up parties: Handmade Harbour, Manon Popje's Illustrations, Be Different Act Normal, Tatertots and Jello and Lamb Around.
