Weekly Inspiration Linky Party 2/6/15

Weekly Inspiration is Awesome!

And so is the 5th and final day of Valentine Lovelies!!!

Hearts N Twine

Both of the projects seen here were in our weekly inspiration posts recently. I love when something just jumps out at you and says "make me!". The knitted hearts are quick and simple knitting, it took me about 10 mins to knit one side, you can have one finished in a half hour easy. Directions are here.

The scrap fabric twine is a pleasant surprise! I thought this is going to be a painful project that was going to take  f-o-r-e-v-e-r! I decided to give it a try and if it proved too daunting, I could give up. It turned out to be a win-win! I love raiding the scrap buckets and using up my scraps, and it really goes fairly quickly, depending on the size of your project of course.  Helen from Till We Quilt Again, is going to make a throw rug so that will be a much bigger commitment, but the twisted twine I made for the hearts was whipped up in a short amount of time. I'm so glad I gave it a try!

I learned a valuable lesson, it might not be as bad as it appears! I love when that happens!! 

The only decision now is where to use it, I can't seem to find a good spot for it! It just may end up being a gift for someone special!

Share your inspirations with us please!!
