I finally started to make some tartan hearts, as Christmas gifts.
This year I won't decorate too much, but Christmas isn't Christmas without any presents ;) I love to surprise my dear ones and all the people who made me feel good this past year, with a small yet special gift, hand-made with love and patience... it seems incredible, but many hours are required to make simple things like these!
I have made several hearts in traditional reds and greens, but I thought to also include some made of this yummy pink and cream tartan. It was such a lucky find! I am not used to see pink tartan...
Tiny mother-of-pearl buttons are patiently hand- sewn to finish off and add my signature to the pieces. I always love to add small collections of grouped vintage buttons to my creations.
Will show you the red ones when I return from England. This post is scheduled to join Beverly and the Pinkies for Pink Saturday- I will read your comments today, but will be able to reply to you only when I'm back (I also have some people left to thank personally for the sweet words on this post- my internet connection was so bad last week that it was impossible for me to reach you all).
Thanks for stopping by!
