Cute Tutorial For Valentines

Hi, Primmies -
I found a cute and easy tutorial for these  Patchwork Cones  from the people at Crafts n Things magazine.
I see these made from old quilt scraps, burlap with
a muslin liner. The muslin could be gathered at the
top making a ruffle and of  course tea/coffee dyed
and as grungy as you want. A cinnamon dough
heart on the outside, a rusty heart or even a rusty snowflake. You gals are all so creative I'm sure you
could take this basic tutorial and make a great prim item from this. Maybe a red osnaburg fabric cone grungied and/or sanded worn spots, burlap or muslin liner ruffled or not. *i like ruffles*
I worked on Polly Daggett sampler this afternoon
until I made my first mistake and then I stopped.
That's what I do, stitch until I make a mistake cuz that  means I've stitched too long for my old eyes.
I felt much better by tonight, made Swedish meat-
balls in brown gravy, buttered noodles and a salad. Not really allowed on  my new diabetic diet but I ate small portions. 
Mr. Glen Oaks is doing poorly tonight. He had a bad pain day and can't get comfortable. Poor guy.
I don't know what to do for him.
I've got to clean up the kitchen so I'll close now.
I hope sometime tomorrow I'll have really gotten
far on the sampler and have another picture for you. Take care and have a very nice night all.
Hugs,
Susan
