Sweet heart for my Sweetheart

It seemed appropriate on Valentine's Day to finish making this little trinket.
The pattern is 'Sweet Heart Birdies' by one of my favourite Australian designers, Marg Low. And it features a beautiful timber embellishment by Theodora Cleave Designs.
My Sweetness is one of those men who think Valentine's Day is a whole lot of commercial rubbish. But I made this for him, just to stir! Perhaps he'll hang it above his workbench in the shed!
My favourite 'leurve song' right now is 'Love you till the end' by The Pogues (click below to play). On Rachel's recommendation, I finally watched 'P.S. I Love You' in the holidays. Man, I don't remember ever having cried so much in all my life! Gorgeous film. But be prepared to be a blubbering, exhausted mess by the end. Happy Valentine's Day!


  1. I need to watch this movie. Sounds like a good one!

  2. What a cute heart! Great job! I loooved that movie, and you're not alone... I cried my little eyes out. My mascara "tubes" were a tubey flaky mess all over my cheeks from me rubbing the, uh, speck of dust out of my eyes. :) I hope you had a great day!!

  6. Oh I love your Valentine thinking its the nicest Valentine memento that I've seen in blogland this month.
    I know your husband will say its "a lot of rubbish" (mine does too); but some days when he is alone in his shed, he will look up at that heart and think he's a lucky man to have you in his life.
    Well done.
    Kind Regards
