My chance to wonder about hand made things and tell the world about those I make, love and cherish!

More time wasting.






Yes I know , 2 photos of the same thing but I can't work out how to delete them!

I have been enjoying making these little love tokens.
I can't really think what else to call them. Its been nice in the evening to settle down with whatever junk is on the TV and do some hand sewing. I was thinking more about the letters between Abelard and Eloise and used more scraps of fabric to make tiny little hearts and cushions. I have added bead and some stitching.
A bit like pin cushions.
A bit like those beautiful little things that the Victorians would make to give to their love.
I have always be fascinated by treasure and the ideas around what we treasure. How very ordinary things can hold amazing feelings and memories.

Not quite sure what I will do with them now!

Thanks so much for the kind words on my blog about the US election. I am so happy (and relieved) to hear that the rest of the world is rejoicing with us. It's 9 hours later and I am still practically on the verge of tears. So very happy today....jan

The fact that you have them and you have made them is enough to make them treasure.
