Happy Valentine's Day-- with PINK HEARTS

There is no better way to say Happy Valentine's Day to Friends and Family than with a little LOVE!! or so I thought. I got really excited about making these hearts trivets... found a fat quarter bundle and began to cut.... 18 hearts am I crazy.... yes I am. I have a really hard time just making one. Well, I got about 10 tops completely pieced and realized I had made a big mistake-- had to unpick all 18 ..... yes I did not say that I take the smart approach and make one to make sure I know what I am doing... full steam ahead.

So I have 7 of the 18 done just in time for tomorrow for friends... the rest are probably going to end up in a quilt, they are pieced just not sandwiched and quilted. These truly were fun.. until unpicking.. that is when I had a great desire to through them in the corner.....

Found some time to make these Yummy Key Lime Sugar Cookies to go with the trivets and put them in some really cute bags with some candy hearts and I am ready for tomorrow.

I could not resist adding the roses to the pictures-- these are a week old and they still look great!! Thanks Valentine!!

Hope you have a great Valentine's Day!! Happy "heart" to everyone!!
