So, while I am embroidering tiny hearts, I thought since it is February, I'd show you some hearts I have made over the last few years. There are more, but this is a selection, and most of them now live with other people, in fact, were made for them. This one, about six inches long, embroidered on felt, well, I still own it. And, there is a black one further along, that I still have. The rest live elsewhere. I hope you enjoy seeing them.
Silk ribbon embroidery on Battenburg lace.
This is, if I remember, a piece about ten inches square, maybe twelve. A
pillow, sold long ago.
This little blue pincushion, also gone....lives in California. More silk ribbon, on painted linen. I think it is three inches square.
An ATC card, also long gone. One of those tiny hearts I'm now working on...this whole piece is about 2 1/2" x 3 1/2."
I've made many of these over time. I hope they still bring pleasure to those receiving them.
This is that black one I mentioned....I'm pretty sure it is the first crazy quilt heart I made. Hard to see in this photo, but the background actually is four different pieces of black fabric. This one is about three inches long.
A lot of beading on these. Part of the fun (and also the work!) of course!
Another tiny embroidered heart on this one!
These vary between five or six inches long.
Really red! Used a red heart butterfly necklace on this one, without the chain, of course!
Another embroidered heart, too.
Variegated thread on these tiny embroidered hearts.
I'm a fool over leaves! Love stitching them everywhere!
Red and Black. Another embroidered heart.
Another ATC card. With more hearts. And, those leaves!
This embroidered heart was made with a different take on the French Knot, this one has a 'tail.' You know I have a weakness for French Knots......
And, there you have them....Hearts I have made over time.
Well, February, and all that!!!!
Until next time,
