Waste not, want not...
So I had all of these tiny little slivers of fabric left from trimming my HST... just a little pile of fluff, really. But they made me smile and I wanted to share that feeling. So I ironed them onto a piece of pellon, stitched my way across it- zigzaging this way and that until I felt they were secure and then cut out hearts and appliqued them down on a postcard. How easy and so sweet! So now I'm sharing the smile with you!
BTW, guess who finally picked up DSL??? I am so happy. What fun this is- to click, click, click, type a minute and click again. Post done. Used to take me 45 minutes, now takes me five. And I can visit all my blog friends in about 5 minutes instead of an hour. Technical question- now don't laugh. Some of you return a comment to me(on email) when I leave a comment on your blog. How do you do that? Thanks! Hope everyone had a great weekend and are ready to charge into the new week!

Go into Blogger settings, click the comments tab. Scroll down to the bottom, where it says "Comment Notification Email." Put your email address in there and click "save settings." Then whenever anyone comments, you'll receive an email with the comment and a link to them and their blog. You can click 'reply' and your response will go to them (as long as they have their email entered in their info -- some haven't done that and are listed as 'no-reply'). Good luck! It's so nice to have things work more quickly.

I was soooo glad when I moved to DSL from dail up! Makes things "fit" my day so much better.

Your confetti hearts turned out really wonderfully well.... a real inspiration to enjoy even the tiny bits :-)

How wonderfully cute are those little hearts! So clever too!

Congrats on the DSL!!! aren't modern inventions just the neatest thing!

Ah...jovaliquilts beat me to it! Hope it works for you. Welcome to life in the fast lane via DSL!

Love the postcards! You are so ahead of the game. I would bet that you've got a couple of children that would love to help out and make Valentine's for their friends and loved ones. ;-)

I *heart* you! ;-)

Darling postcards and a great way to use up every little bit. Quilters are nothing if not resourceful *s*

Hope that e-mail thing works for you. It took me ages to figure out how that works. I'd pay almost anything for DSL but alas, it's not available in my backwoods location. Dial-up is soooo time comsuming.

Once again your creativity inspires me. Such cute hearts.

What a great postcard! I have to admit, though, when I first saw it, I thought they were placemats! It's amazing what a little perspective can do!
I've got a cable modem, which I've had for a few years, and I can't imagine going back to dial up! I can get so much more done on the computer now than I could before...none of it is housework, though. :)

These postcards are very cute. Sometimes when I'm doing a lot of trimming, I just find myself standing and admiring my trash!
