HUGS AND KISSES BLOG HOP **update**

To quote our blog mistress, Mdm Samm:

"It does not matter if you celebrate VALENTINES  day or not...
I think you would most certainly agree, our world could 
use more hugs and kisses.."

Our cheerleader for this hop is Ms. Jane of Jane's Fabrics
Can you see the red, white and pink pomspoms? Sure, I know you can! 

My little contribution is an almost finished table runner using all the reds from the Home Town Collection by Sweetwater and two little heart projects....all made this week! 
I waited for ever to decide what to do then I let time get away from me. LOL 
I also did another V-day hop too....doy!



Love the colors....l o v e



What it will look like once the binding is attached...




Ah yes, true love on the flip side..........
This puppy will be displayed for the entire month of May in celebration 
of the 5-17-2013 release of ST: Into Darkness 
Boooo and yaaaaa



A close up of the quilting



I made this little conversation heart pincushion 
as a little hostess gift for a fellow stitcher
FYI...she loves it and is going to wear it as a pin on V-day. lol
It's about 4" across and an inch deep.



This little beauty was made for a Steampunk themed V-day Hop
