Tag Tuesday...Valentine's Day


Hello my loverlies, I'm a day late here for Valentines day but Happy Valentines Day anyway!

Just popping quickly in before i head off to work to post my tag for Tag Tuesday this week.

I just recycled a post bag and slapped a bit of paint around as well as some pretty black roses tissue from one of the lovely ladies at hubbys work. She gave me a heap of pretty napkins :) I found the red doily lying on the table and added a sari silk rose to the centre...




For Valentines Day, i made a few of these pockets for my friends ! i then spent a lovely afternoon at Jenny's after work chatting, drinking tea and stripping lavender from her two bushes. We are into the next market in March and thought we would make some lavender bags...


With regards to the Little Book of Atc Backgrounds swap, everyone should have had an email from me regarding the details. If you havent , please check your junk email or else email me :)

This is my second week back at work after having a lovely break and im still plodding with Charlies quilt, have to say im really happy with how its turning out but it still needs putting together and im hoping it will come together ok...Poor girl, it was her 19th Birthday a couple of weeks ago so its now a WHOLE year late, she has been very patient but it is going to get done soon... it will, it will get done SOON!

Love your heart tag Jen! You are such a recycler/upcycler. That chocolate looks yummy!!!
Looking forward to seeing Charlies quilt. I am renowned for taking a long time to finish a quilt...so my family can relate to this post.

Hope you had a lovely Valentine's Day Jen - your hearts are beautiful!

.... picking lavendar, sounds so funny when our bushes are all dried up being winter ... I can almost smell the pretty lavendar scent from here though!

Lovely tags & hearts - that face is 'spooky' but amazing! I'll be watching your atc techniques with interest.
