Personalised Felted Hearts

This week I continued making Felted Hearts. I wanted to make another hanging decoration.

This time I wanted to embroider letters on each heart.

This is quite brave for me considering  me and sewing dont get along!
But as I had envisaged what I wanted it to look like, I was determined to give it a go.

I was quite pleased with how it turned out. It didnt matter if they weren't perfect as it added to its natural rustic feel.
I haven't quite finished. I have yet to add the ribbon and to felt the backs of them, this will cover up the back of the stitching and attatch the ribbon.

On another note, we have recently started to watch movies regularly. We don't get the time to go to the cinema so we decided to hook up to LoveFilm, and Sunday afternoons have now become our movie time. So I thought i'd add an update each week of what we've been watching!

HUGO = Martin Scorsese makes his first foray into children's cinema with this semi-fantastical drama based on a book by Brian Selznick. Asa Butterfield stars as Hugo, an orphan who lives in the hidden nooks of a train station in 1920s Paris. With the help of his friend, Isabelle (Chloë Moretz), he sets out to solve a mystery left behind by his late father (Jude Law): a curious puzzle involving a heart-shaped key, a cranky toy shop owner (Ben Kingsl
ey) and a broken automaton. Along the way, the tangled lives of the staff and passengers at the station provide numerous colourful detours, and Scorsese pays homage to early pioneers of cinema including the Lumiere brothers and Georges Méliès. The film was nominated for eleven Oscars and won five awards including Best Cinematography and Best Visual Effects.
From J.J. Abrams and Steven Spielberg... In the summer of 1979, a group of friends in a small Ohio town witness a catastrophic train crash while making a super 8 movie and soon suspect that it was not an accident. Shortly after, unusual disappearances and inexplicable events begin to take place in town, and the local Deputy tries to uncover the truth - something more terrifying than any of them could have imagined.



  1. Ahhh I love the needle felted hearts - they're gorgeous! I got into needle felting at about this time last year so our house was full of them by valentine's day! (not so sure hubby was as keen on them as I was though!) have a good week, Simmi x
