Vintage Valentine block 1 & Sleepy Furry Helper

What a lovely project this is to work on. This afternoon I completed block #1 of Vintage Valentine.

I'm using the kit supplied by Shabby Fabrics. The fabrics are absolutely gorgeous.



Just had to show you a few details:


The flower centres are made of fabric covered buttons which I made, using little button kits. The idea is not mine; a clever person from Shabby Fabrics came up with this great idea.



And - as promised - here are the fabrics for block #2 of this project:



As for my Furry Helper, he's been suffering from the hot weather and is still trying to squeeze himself in 'Kruimel's Nest' which is part of our big scratching pole in the living room.



A rather tight fit for our 18 month-old British Shorthair tomcat.




Thanks for all your lovely comments. They certainly are very inspiring and it is so great to find other people's stitching blogs, and gaining inspiration from them.

Oooooh, I looove that! Are the petals of the flowers detached from the background? What a beautiful 3D effect!

As you know, you will always make me happy with cat pictures - wonderful! :-)

Hi Gio,
thanks for your lovely comments.

Yep, the petals are made of woolfelt and they are detached from the background, which indeed gives a 3D effect, as do the fabric-covered buttons.
