I'm not heartless , I've just been busy !

I haven't just been swanning around buying ric rac , I actually did some sewing and used a small piece of my very limited supply .
We don't do Valentines in my house but because it was the season I wanted to make a heart using my very special Cath Kidson fabric that I won recently from Susie at I just love that Fabric .
It has a little pocket in the front that can be used for secreting love letters to my beloved or I'll just put the cushion on my chair and hide lollies from the kids in it , much better idea !

What a gorgeous cushion Clare and I love the fabric. Not sure about it being a safe hiding possie for the chocolate... kids just seem to have a built in radar when it comes to lollies - LOL.
