Sweater Heart Garland

Our room is done in shades of blue and I wanted a little Valentine love in there too, so I created this sweater heart garland.  It took a little time to stitch around the edges of each heart, but it was well worth it.
Who knew just a few sweater hearts (stitched with love of course) and some jute twine added such Valentine love to our cozy room.
I decided on five hearts.  I learned a long time ago that you are supposed to use odd numbers when decorating, I hope that's right!  I had some leftover sweaters that I'd used for a sweater pumpkin project, so I cut out the hearts and used some embroidery thread to stitch around the edge of each one for just a little extra sumthin'.
It was well worth the time it took to create when I got them all strung on the twine and hung up on the dresser that stands beneath the window. I love it!
I try not to make our room to frilly and girly so its comfortable for both of us and I think these little hearts are just right for keeping that in mind. No frills here!

It doesn't have to be done all at once.  It is a slow process in the works! C-ya next time!
