Heart Stitches

 Once again I find myself inspired by Pam Garrison and Charlotte Lyons.
The above are still works in progress.... but I needed to update my blog, so you get a sneak peek!

The photo above was taken with Instagram... thus the "different feel" to it....

And....then I got all caught up in making some other things... you know how one heart leads to another...

I started making hearts that I learned in a class led by Alisa Burke... (Christy Tomlinson's Twelve Artsy Ornaments of Christmas).... the flowers watercolored on text paper and cut into hearts and stitched up....


 Then I made the brown bag ones!!!!
(I can't find a picture of those little bags we all (?) made.... but I know I did.... anyway.... stitching the lace and text on brown lunch sacks...you remember?)

Anyway...the paper hearts are lightly stuffed with fiberfill and stitched up, too!

Warning........... start at your own risk.
Highly addictive!

ooo I {heart} your Hearts SO very much Linda!
They are each wonderful!

I have always had a "thing" for hearts!


I know Valentine's Day is right around the corner, but I must say it seems to me hearts have been very popular of late...

perhaps it's because our world needs MORE LOVE...

thank you for sharing and inspiring...I need to stop organizing and make something!

What a fun collection of hearts. I cut out a bunch from fabric last night but haven't gotten around to stitching them yet. 'Tis the season, apparently.

Those are CRAZY CUTE, Linda! I'm participating in a 'challenge' right now...1 Christmas gift a month for 12 months(my 1st is posted on my blog)...and I think you just gave me the inspiration for my February gift!!

Oh, please don't tell me about the bags. I won't stop. You know I won't. I'm seeing felt and lace and brown bags and ribbon. And I really don't have time. And when has that stopped me...

You always inspire me! I must make the brown bag hearts now! My crepe rolls have finally dried. I dyed a red, white and pink roll.

Hello Linda,
I think your hearts are very sweet! The paper ones too. How fun to make these little expressions of love.
The Crepe Valentine in the previous post is also just lovely! I do love crepe!
Hugs,
Terri
