Valentine Heart Table Toppers Finished

 I just finished two Valentine Heart Table Toppers this weekend.  I was working on these before Valentine's Day when a small cutting mat slid underneath one of them and my sewing machine stopped working.  Now they are ready for next year.  To the right you can see the beginning of a granny square crochet project that I've been working on.


Here is a closer photo that shows the machine quilting a bit better.  I'm using the Heart Paisley design by Leah Day


My peony bushes have huge buds already (complete with ants).  This is the Indiana state flower and usually doesn't bloom until sometime in May so we are definitely having an early spring.
 

This is my latest photo of my grandson, Daniel, taken last Wednesday at 2 weeks old.

I hope you are having a nice Easter weekend with family and friends and finding a few minutes to do some stitching.

Thanks for visiting!

Your hearts look beautiful, LuAnn, and I think it is great to be a year ahead on holidays. The quilting looks great!
We had peonies down one side of our house when I was small and I can definitely recall the ants that were ever present on them.
Oh, isn't that little guy precious!
Happy Easter to you!

I love the quilt in your header with the applique and the triangle border around it. It reminds me in a way of what I am doing with triangles and the Pineapple Square I am working on.
Cute baby!!

Classics!
Congrats on the grandbaby - so sweet.
Oh - peonies - I used to have 20 varities - they are such beautiful flowers! Thanks for sharing.

The heart paisley quilting design you chose is perfect for this project. Congrat's on finishing it way ahead of next February. You're prepared.

Daniel is at that hug-gable, snuggly age. They're so precious.

Our peonies aren't nearly as far along as yours. I'm looking forward to seeing those ants!
