And Even More Hearts . . .

Just a few days left in February so here are some more hearts to share:


These are from a band sampler. I think they are pretty in their simplicity.


I found this not too long ago in my pile of 'stitched-but-unfinished' projects. Years ago it was stitched on 28 ct amber linen with DMC floss and Mill Hill beads with a little shank button on the bow. It's crazy quilt look and nostalgic feel was appealing to me. This could have been made into a pillow or even framed. Instead I tacked a narrow tatting-like lace around the edge, backed it with muslin and put a little pearl cotton hanger on the back.

I’ve toyed with the idea of turning this into a card and putting a message on the back like “Remember Me”, or “To” and “From” written in colored ink . I can even see this with a pocket on the back to hold special cards. It could even go on the front of a picture or scrapbook album. The pattern is Victorian Elegance “Forget Me Not” by Homespun Elegance No. 122.


I’m partial to the watermelon heart; how about you?


And for all the love birds out there (I see that smile!) – two love birds surrounded by a heart!

I enjoyed sharing these hearts with you; I hope you liked seeing them.


  1. Hello, and thanks for paying me a visit on my blog. The alphabet SAL done in beautiful colors is wonderful, and thanks so much for the heads up on that one. I love all your hearts!

  2. BEAUTIFUL WORK !!! I am so inspired. Wow, your work is beautiful and your photos are great, but it just doesn't catch the amazing beauty and precision of you needle work. Now, if you don't know what to do with any of your needle cases, I know. :) !! What will you be doing for March ? Love your tip on the dangle threads - tell them about the BaseBall card keeper in a notebook.
