Lollipop holders complete

14 Feb

Well, it is a few minutes into Valentines Day, and they are all made for the boy’s classes. My daughter has inserted heart suckers into each one and stapled a valentine to each one for every classmate. The teachers will get a small box of candy and a heart. I’m posting 2 of my favorite hearts. One I forgot the buttonholes, so it will become a refrigerator magnet. The pink girly heart will go to Ian’s teacher who is such a sweetie. So, now, I want to get some sewing done. It is good to be finished with these, but I want to finish some quilting. My grandsons gave Grampa and I candy. Hope everyone has a lovely day



More Valentines

7 Feb


I’m having so much fun making these valentines for the boys. Still need about 30 more, but trying to be creative and make them unique. So, here are more pictures of some of the latest. I’ve been using charm squares that I had on hand which makes the process quicker. Thanks for coming by.

Valentines Day sucker pops holders

29 Jan

My daughter and her husband are finally in her old bedroom with a real bed. Things are still a huge mess, but we are making progress. I am getting so spoiled because my daughter is doing most of the cooking. Since Valentine’s Day is coming, I’m making lollipop holders for the boys to take to school and hand out. Designed to look like candy hearts with sayings, they are machine embroidered hearts with button holes to insert the stick of the lollipop into and give away. Easy to make and really cute and can be made of so many fabrics. The embroidery designs are done completely in the hoop, and come from Embroidery Library (emblibrary.com). This is a great chance to use up some scraps. The boys are excited and want to choose fabrics from my stash. They are even doing some of the embroidery. I really do like having them here. It feels somewhat like the “Walton’s” from television. The boys are too young to be “John Boy”, but still family is just so important to me.
