It's not going to be here for a while though, because it's coming from the Netherlands. So, I had to improvise! I knew I wanted to make hearts, so after some soul searching (get it? Heart and soul? Ok, ok, terrible...), I came up with this idea:
Love Pats 11 Bead Set
I made the center heart using a press that my friend and fellow Fire Diva Holly from Holly's Folly generously lent me.
I was thrilled with this set. The problem was, however, my husband and I both agreed that although it was good for Valentine's day, it was also good for Easter, and not quite what I had in mind. I set out again to make that absolutely breathtaking, jaw-dropping, heart-stopping, romantically perfect Valentine's Day bead set. I made this:
Love Pats 8 Bead Set
Now this was what I was aiming for! The little red hearts on ivory were the perfect combination. It really felt like "love" to me.
Somewhere along the way I realized these little beads looked remarkably like truffles to me. Therefore, the only natural thing to do was make a third set.
Chocolate Love Pats 8 Bead Set
If they were edible they'd be good enough to eat. Mmmm... chocolate. My biggest vice. I think I'll go have some and ponder over what I'm going to make this weekend.
