Bunting and sweethearts

My mother does not like computers….. although? Since my sister and I have a blog and a shop, a visit to my house is not complete if she did not see all the new posts! (And the blogs of the persons who visit ours). We try to persuade her to a computer course…. But still no results. She does like to contribute every now and then.
And now she made lots of triangle pendent’s in all kind of colors. I wanted to make them into a new cheerful bunting, but the flags were a little tall.

bunting, flags

So I cut off the top and above you see the result.
This morning I sewed the scraps together and made these sweethearts

Sweetheart

Just to get into the valentine mood!

Greetings,
