trail of hearts …

all of you dear hearts out there

*lavender filled heart photographed on a cigar box with the mother of all golden ‘flimmers’ … collected long before I knew about the chocolate ones*

you know who you are

*blue cotton velvet from dear Jean … last tiny lavender bud harvest and a way to use my wee wire birdsnest*

you continue to touch my heart so sweetly

*recycled rose fabric and a vintage button on my 25 cent thrift shop plaster hand … the hot pink sticker glowing to the right … the white fur in the background was a surprise gift from our youngest son when he returned from boy scout camp one year*

Bless You One and All

*great “crackle” fabric from Lesley Riley’s clean out sale last year and a wooden hand charm*

lavender is soothing … I spent the evening stitching hearts with lavender buds tucked inside … all of us have hearts that need mending sometime or another … wish you could smell these and that I could stitch enough to send to each and every one of you

  19. I’m sort of late to this post, but all those hearts and hands are so symbolic. I know you told me your sis collects hands and you started, too, but I had no idea you had so many, and all so beautiful. The stitched hearts are amazing. I just can’t imagine doing anything so tedious and staying within the lines so well. Not only are you a great artist, fine decorator, but wonderful seamstress, too!
