Scrap Happy: the Valentine Edition

Having been ill with the walking pneumonia  for a couple of weeks has left me weak and unable (make that scared to go out in public with all the FLU in the air) to get out.

So what to do for a Valentines card for Bob?

Make it.

With what?

Scraps of course!

Digging into my scrap drawer for red, white and black fabric scraps, I cut, sewed and then stitched this together.  I then added a few vintage mother of pearl buttons to it for flair.  I thought it could have been neater, but Bob said it wouldn’t have looked right if I had made it perfect.

Glad he liked it. 🙂

    Aww, that’s *lovely*! Bob’s a lucky man. We completely forgot about Valentine’s Day, being travelling at the time, but we did manage to score some chocolate before the end of the day 🙂 I hope you’re feeling much better very soon.

      Thank you, Tom. The worst of it was the cough. I slept sitting up for days, then I had a violent reaction to the cough medicine from the Dr. (Hydrocodone). I don’t know what I will be able to take the next time I ever get a cough like that. For now I just need energy. 😛

    I think your valentine is wonderful. Frilly and frou-frou just wouldn’t have made it, but this is perfect. I hate that you’ve been ill, and I think you’re smart to stay away from the flu-bearers, but it’s clear that you’re creative enough to “make do” even in those less than happy circumstances!

    I’ve never heard of ‘walking pneumonia’ but it sounds awful and I’m glad you’re starting to feel better.
    As for Bob’s comment on your supposedly less than perfect Valentine’s card – awwww, bless him, I got a warm feeling inside as I expect you did too. I had to make do with borrowing your warm feeling as my husband forgot! Again!

    That is so cleverly done! It’s a wonderful valentine, worth more than anything store-bought. Having the flu right now, I can tell you, you made the right decision. I’m hoping that’s as far as I go!

      I am all well, Lisa, and thank you for checking in on me. I have been stuck in the doldrums off and on for far to long, but find myself out and doing gardening bit by bit on the warmest of these spring days. We spent ourselves on the Mtn. Farmlet in so many ways and let this place fall to the wayside because we were so tired all the time. However, we are snapping out of that now too and our home is starting to look like we live here again. Spring is helping my/our outlook. ❤

        it’s great to hear from you, and yes, sometimes we realize that the trail we were once on, does not serve us as well as another.. sometimes we need incubation time. i remember long ago in costa rica, as i prepared to either go up the ladder – or down- to get to the footbridge that crossed a little stream and went straight into my studio/casita.. and i thought, ‘one day this won’t be fun anymore.’

        i’m glad that i moved on before i reached that ‘it’s not fun’ point. life gave me some nudges and then a big kick that propelled me to ecuador!!!

        enjoy the explosion of spring flowers/colors/longer days, etc ! you’ll reclaim that joy one day at a time.

So how about that? Go on; say something!
