I love making gifts for family and friends. I feel a little guilty if I find myself in a store making a purchase. It would be wonderful if I could spend days working on an item, but the reality is I have limited time to spare. So the gifts are usually small, simple and quick to make. Now by quick I mean any project that can be made in under four hours. I like to think of them as morning or afternoon projects.
This is one of my favourite quick projects. A stitched heart filled with lavender. It can be slipped inside a greeting card and posted to a friend. Just a nice way to say 'Hope you're feeling better soon' or 'Thank You'.
Now there is another reason why I need to have some simple and quick items to make. I need three birthday presents by next Friday. One is finished, another started and the third, well I can't make up my mind what to make.
I purchased it a few months ago and still like to unfold it, play with it, dream, and then refold it. Here's hoping the recipient will love it as much as I do.
