Mystery is solved and new hearts made

I found out who my mystery friend from yesterday was. It was Sølvi who had mailed me all those lovely laces and ribbons. And she tells me that her mother have made some of them. And that is very special. I have already used some of the laces I got to embellish some new hearts . I enjoy sewing these hearts although I am going to swapp them away. But I know I will get som other wonderful hearts in return. I studyed my new book I bought yesterday and tryed to make a ladybug And I think they turned out very well. And they was easy to make. I'll show you a closeup of the ladybugs if you want to try to make one yourself. The ladybug is made of red silkribbon 7mm and brown thread.

Jeg fant ut hvem min mystiske venn fra i går var. Det var Sølvi som hadde sendt meg alle de nydelige blondene og knappene. Og hun forteller meg at hennes mor faktisk har laget noen av nuperellene. Jeg har allerede brukt noen av blondene jeg fikk til å dekorere noen nye hjerter. Jeg synes det er morro å sy disse hjertene selv om jeg skal bytte de bort. Men jeg vet at jeg vil få noen fine tilbake fra andre. Jeg studerte min nye bok i går og prøvde å lage marihøner. Og jeg synes de ikke ble så aller verst. Og de var lette å lage. Jeg viser et nærbilde av marihønene hvis du har lyst til å lage noen selv. Marihøna er laget av rødt silkebånd 7mm og brunt moulinegarn

Heia :-)
du kor flotte dei blir hjertene dine - misunner nok dei som er så heldig å få noe så fint i posten.
Men lurer da litt på korleis du klarer å sende fra deg dei flotte hjerta og har du fått noen nye tilbake :-)

Love the new hearts -- each so nice. What tiny work you do on the ladybugs -- they are so sweet

I love those ladybugs! Remind a bit of some honeybees I put on a round robin recently--what fun!

Darlene said...

May - your hearts are incredible. I don't do this type of work so it's been fun to see yours.

Hedgehog said...

Your hearts are just beautiful. Good luck with the article.

The ladybugs are great! Thanks for showing a close-up. They will be swapped away in no time.

How lovely of Solvi to share some laces made by her mother. What fun for you to have such a good friend!

May Britt, the blue and white heart is just stunning. I love hearts with a piece of dark fabbie thrown in there...and that wavy lace is to die for!!
I just left a comment on another blog about all the hearts I'm missing out on because I haven't made any recently

The little lady bugs look great and i love the blue heart with the lace. You certainly have been busy making so many hearts for swapping.

Patti said...

The hearts are beautiful May. I especially love the blue one. And the lady books are SO cute!

What a very nice friend you have!

Your hearts are lovely May Britt!
Have you ever thought it should turn out this way?
You are making hearts by the dozen and they fly away!
Flott arbeid!
