Show us your stuff

The gorgeous and very talented Kerry over at Show us Your Stuff has asked me to be the Guest Designer for the month of Feb. I was so honoured.
The theme was love ( of course) and we had to make our own hearts. So I have "quilted" my own heart with Moda fabric and stiched it onto my LO.
This is what I came up with - I am REALLY sorry about the photo quality but as you have probably heard me whining - I am on very limited resources - but you get the idea.....
The title of the LO is "I love you Daddy, as far as my arms can reach....but my arms are only little". 
 The story is each night Anthony would ask her how much she loved him and if she held up her fingers and showed a little bit - she would get tickled until she screamed for mercy - then he would ask again and she would stretch her arms and show him alot. Then she would be safe from tickles. But one night she yelled after he had left the room and had been spared of a tickle - that her arms were only little!!! Cheeky thing {no idea where that comes from?????}

and one of my homemade cupcakes.... yummo

One of my home made swallows.... love them....

close up of my heart and one of my homemade bottle caps..and OF twine
