Swapping with myself this month

Last year I missed the valentine swap and this year it's not happening so I decided I'm making my own swap with a deadline.
One of the items I'm making is this cute clove heart.

The page doesn't link but it's from

I've been wanting to make these for at least a year. I bought two little jars of cloves at Christmas time but I need to find a good bulk place to buy them. I wanted to make them for a swap but didn't.

I also want to make a stitchery from The Primitive Hare

I loved reading the Simply Prim blog, I sure miss her writing it.

prim valentine hearts (
I think I'm going to make at least one of these to add to my bowl with hearts in it.

I really like these hearts. I have squares sitting around looks like you sew four together and then cut out a heart. My link to this didn't link to anything.

  I need something taller to balance out my mantle.

I think I'll make valentine pinwheels, why didn't I think of that sooner. I've made them in patriotic material and Christmas material and used as ornaments. I could also make yoyos and put them on sticks for a little height. What I really want to do is make a a bigger stitchery for a frame I have, just need to find something to put in it.
I better get started soon.

I have springs and hearts need to dig them out.

I also like this heart with candle light, it linked to ebay but not to the seller.

This is from A Fine Farmhouse but didn't directly link

I love this little guy he also was from ebay but no longer links

I like these hearts that are also from ebay and doesn't link.

I also like these hearts. Another ebay one.

I think I'm make this into a sampler, I have a nice size picture frame that will work.

I also like this simple heart could be a bigger stitchery.

I keep finding stuff I want to make

It looks like I'll be busy for a little while, What are you busy making?
