Hearts seem to be the theme everywhere this week. It’s the theme for this week’s Project Quilting challenge as well as the theme for #OurProject52 this week.
When I originally looked at the theme sheet for #OurProject52, I was surprised that Hearts was for the week after Valentine’s Day and not the week before. I don’t know why. There should obviously be more hearts around after your husband gives you chocolates. But that didn’t happen at my house anyway.
I didn’t get a gift from my husband for Valentine’s Day. We didn’t go out to eat. Heck, we didn’t even spend the day together. He headed down to Louisville for the National Farm Machinery Show and I went to a trunk show at the local fabric store. We both enjoyed our day and somehow managed to do it without each other. I guess we’ve gotten to the point- no we’ve always been there- where a special day for showing that we care doesn’t make sense. I’d rather he show me that he cares just a little bit every day than have him only do one big thing for Valentine’s Day each year.
But back to hearts. That is this week’s theme, after all. I just don’t have a lot of heart shaped items in my house. I often find hearts to be girly and childish. That’s probably why the quilt I ended up making for the Hearts challenge for Project Quilting was my take on a child’s drawing.
But Hearts was a great excuse to play with making my own heart shaped bohek cover for my camera. It was fun to try shooting some bokeh, so I might get brave and try a few other shapes as well.
