January Shop Update

 I have updated my Etsy shop Eva Faith with some fun progress keepers and stitch markers with a Valentine's theme, although these sweet hearts and flowers would look good on a project at any time of year.
This tiny glass bottle filled with hearts is a favourite of mine.  These little hearts tell a story:-
one February 14th I found a special gift and card on the dining-table with these hearts scattered around them, from my Valentine.  Of course it was my husband and to be honest it was a "who are you and what have you done with my husband" moment! :) He later handed the remainder of the packet of sequins to me knowing that I would use them to craft with and I thought they would be perfect in these tiny, lightweight bottles as progress keepers.  I am keeping one of these for myself! 
I also love these dainty cup and saucers.  "You are the cream in my coffee, the sugar in my tea."
 I have put one of these progress keepers to use already!
 This set has a vintage feel that I love.
 I have beaded some progress keepers.
 Hearts and flowers, the language of romance.
 The gunmetal and purple, glass beads give this set a gothic feel and the stitch markers are larger for thicker needles.
 I couldn't put just one sheep on a set for Valentine's, there had to be a couple.  Love is in the air!
Finally some spring flowers to celebrate the snowdrops, crocus and winter aconites that are beginning to bloom.

I found these cute, mini tins in Marks and Spencers that are perfect for keeping stitch markers and progress keepers in ... once the chocolates inside them have been eaten! :)
