A Love Note from Johnny to June

One of my favorite love notes was one written by Johnny Cash to June Carter.

Firstly, as far as love notes go, this one stands the test of time. Certainly not without it’s tragedies, the love between Johnny and June eventually prevailed.

Here’s what Johnny penned:

Hey June,

That’s really nice. You’ve got a way with words and a way

with me as well.

The fire and excitement may be gone now that we don’t go out there and sing them anymore, but the ring of fire still burns around you and I, keeping our love hotter than a pepper sprout.

Love John

Then, in response to reading Johnny’s words, here are some Valentine crafts designed just for fun.

Wool Applique

This little wool applique features three little hearts on a soft vine music note. (Get it? Hearts, music note.) It’s tiny and made from scraps of beige, taupe, and three pinks. It hangs from heavy metal “key”.

Quilted Wall Hanging

Here, this mini heart quilted wall hanging is shown lying on a soft layer of snow with Love Notes Mini Punch Needle.

It’s fun to take little squares to make shapes. A heart is easy. Since there is no pattern needed, just determined the size of squares you want and start designing. You might use lefterover squares from other projects! So doing, this is an easy, quick project.

Note: Since making this, I developed a method of how to audition the VALUE of fabrics by using BOTH sides. Consequently, I would now reconsider some of my fabric values! Learn about The Tricky Traits of Value HERE !

Punch Needle Embroidery

Lastly, this punch needle is set in a miniature wooden frame. It’s an open envelope with a heart coming out of it. Tiny punch needle designs are a great activity to do in between larger, more involved quilt projects. Click HERE to learn more.

So, I think of June and Johnny each year when I decorate with these little joys.

Share your love this Valentine’s Day and know that you are loved.

In conclusion, remember this: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16.
