A Sweet Valentine Treat

Last night, while I was in the middle of one of my model stitching marathons, the "frog" paid me a frustrated me beyond belief and I knew at that moment I needed to take a few moments away from my needlework. I decided to try a little machine embroidery project that has been in my pile since last Valentine's Day...some In-The-Hoop Heart Pop Wrappers - a fun and simple machine embroidery project from JesseKate Designs...and if you have an embroidery machine, the digitized file is available for free (yes, FREE) at I thought these were totally adorable! You need minimal supplies - wool, sewing thread, scraps of ribbon, pinking shears, and your embroidery machine....and oh yes, the miniature lollipops (at first, I tried regular size Valentine BlowPops and they are just a bit too big to fit). In just over a half hour, I made 10 of these fun lollipop covers that will make a nice Valentine's Day treat for friends and family! It was thoroughly enjoyable to take a few moments and work on something with instant gratification. I have several other neat Valentine ideas I would really like to try, so hopefully after market preparations, I will be able to make a little more time for sewing and quilting....
