Valentine Heart Swag Swap






I am participating in a Heart Swag Swap with the Fabric in Altered Arts 2 Group.  I embroidered the hearts on my Janome 11000 embroidery machine.  Three of the heart designs are from Anita Goodesign.  I'm now sure of  source for the 4th heart.  I used fabric from my stash.  The red rickrack is also from my stash.  I used a vintage red plastic flower belt buckle and button for the hanger at the top.  I'm quite pleased with the swag.  The rickrack is a little difficult as a hanger.  I might consider using ribbon if I did another one. 

My DH is recovering nicely from his knee replacement surgery and I finally have time to work in my studio and post a few items on my blog.  Thanks to all of you for continuing to visit even though I'm not that consistent with my posts due to life's issues.
