Good Monday morning fellow bloggers! Hope you are well and enjoying warmer temps. Our heavy frosts and bitter cold seem long ago, thankfully.
To get to the title of this post, though: do you ever feel the pressure to post just for the sake of saying something or perhaps because you feel you are letting yourself and others down by not sharing more details of your life? Last week I got down because I felt I had nothing to blog about! But then there's more to life than blogging!
I have to admit that at times I feel I'm not a good blogger if I don't have some new craft item to show to my readers at least once a week. I know others have said things along similar lines. I know too that I worry too much about what others think of my blog and my style of doing things.
It's then that I just take a deep breath and remember that I'm supposed to be blogging for the enjoyment of it. After all's said and done, I have made friends with so many caring and sharing fellow bloggers, who leave such encouraging comments. It's a big blogging world out there!
Anyhow, I will show you some of my hearts for Valentine's. I happen to love making things with hearts on and when I found this freebie pattern from Primraggs I stitched it up QT.
I also hung up a little love heart swag I made ages ago on my entry way shelf~
I also went through the stowed away Christmas decorations for this little tree to decorate with some handmade itty bitty homespun hearts. My husband was saying at Christmas that it was a bit daft buying Decorations which are on display for a short time, so I'm making more use out of this one in my kitchen!
I found this pattern on Primitive Blessings by Twigs and eventually got it stitched. I've seen some colored in and tried it but I'm not convinced it's the way I want it to look~
Well that's how things are around here apart from visits to the dentist and my littlest one home from school today with a fever. There's a rough winter stomach flu bug going around and I just hope we don't catch it!
Thanks from the heart to you all for making blogging a great experience - one I'm so glad I started on - I appreciated you visiting!
