Hugs and Kisses Blog Hop Begins Today

It warms my HEART COCKLES to be included in this fabulously fun endeavor.  Let's have a HEART TO HEART talk about making baskets for Valentine's Day.

My HEART skipped a beat as we started off the very first day of the Hugs and Kisses Blog Hop with my own HEARTFUL creation for the project.  Well, the pattern is not specifically mine, but it is DEAR TO MY HEART and easy to make and you will (HEART) it.

I adapted this HEART HEALTHY tutorial from Pink (how appropriate)  Penguin for my baskets.  I have several in various fabrics holding lots of sewing supplies in my really really really messy sewing room.

Basket Tutorial

Of course, you know me, I have to have dogs involved in what I do.  So this piece of pricelessly HEART filled and gorgeous material came to me from a friend's travels.  Ann brought this to me all the way from Philadelphia   Poodles parade across the piece carrying HEARTS.  What can be better than HEART dogs at Valentine's Day?

This HEART STOPPING basket is pretty versatile   It carries all kinds of stuff, my knitting, for one.  It sure does look like I knit, huh?  Don't have HEART FAILURE now, I don't, LOL.  But I do see making socks in my future.

I had some HEART fabric left over and made this darling zip pouch.  I have a bunch of these guys, in all sizes.  They are HEARTY gifts for my girlfriends, or my {{HEART}}} family, whichever needs something to cheer up their JEARTS AND SOULS or fill in at a party HEART-Y!

From the BOTTOM OF MY HEART to Madame Samm for setting up this HEARTFELT Hop and to Jane at Jane's Fabrics for riding heard on all of us wild HEARTS!
