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.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Mimi! Quilting can be a lot of fun. I love playing with all the fabric. It’s also a fairly expensive hobby (don’t tell my husband), but worth it if it’s something you enjoy. I recommend it to everyone.

  1. That’s cool. I love Bokeh. My husband didn’t get me anything either but that is normal in my house lol. We did spend the day together at Disney on Ice.

    1. That sounds fun! I don’t think I could talk my husband into going to see ice skating. He’d rather be getting the farm equipment ready for spring, but I don’t often mind. Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Thanks so much Tia! Quilting is one of my favorite things to do to pass the time when my husband is out farming. I’m glad that I’m not the only one who’s house did nothing exciting for VDay.
