~STRAIGHT TO THE HEART...FRENCH WHITE SACHET PILLOWS~

 A few weeks ago I took a large special order for two dozen (um...that would be twenty-four)
HEART SACHET PILLOWS!
I almost turned the order down because making that many of one thing sorta makes me NUTSO...
But then I remembered I have a KITCHEN to pay for so I said YES!

After the 15th heart I was wondering WHAT I HAD DONE!
Fashioned for family, friends and attendant gifts for the wedding of a longtime customer's daughter, each Sachet was made in soft white cotton and linen and complemented with vintage laces, buttons, heart charms, ribbons, etc...
 Not since my own girl married in 2007 have I worked with so much off-white fabric!  I ended up making thirty-one hearts and the mother-of-the-bride decided to take twenty-six of them!  Whew!!!  The rest have been uploaded to my A Gathering Place website!  You can find them HERE!

That big monkey lovely job:) is now off my back completed so I'm hoping to get back to doing some hand painting on furniture this week!  Soft Pink Roses are calling out my name (haven't forgotten your chairs, Tea!)...

Happy Tuesday!!!
On my to-do-list today:
~ONE LONG OVERDUE MASSAGE~
 Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.....

Love to you...

Rebecca, you are a woman after my own heart. I love these little hearts!! Lucky, you that you are able to sell your stuff. I don't have enough confidence in my stuff to sell it on line yet. But I have tried to sell things at the flea market without much luck!!

Oh my gosh, I know that was a lot of work, Rebecca, but they are so beautiful! What a wonderful gift idea for a bride to give out. I know how you feel ~ I like to go back and forth between different types of projects. I do love to sew, but after a few days of that I need to do something else. The same with painting, though; after painting several projects I need to leave it for a bit.

Dearest Rebecca,

Your massage sounds good in the end... But your bridal heart shaped gifts turned out like none I've ever seen! You rock with anything lace and vintage. Your ruffles are so perfect and the rayon ribbons are lovely too. Everything on them is TOPS.
Hugs to you,
Mariette
