Here we are gathered together for mother’s day, 12 years ago.
Day 28 of HEARTS!
Many of you know that I love hearts! I love the shapes and all of the possibilities. Here is an example of three generations who love hearts. The first image is of an embroidered greeting card that my mom made. The second is an image of the beginnings of my class Embroidered from the Heart. The third is my most favorite valentine, from our daughter Gwen.
Happy February to you, and thank you for letting me share my love of hearts!
Many of you know that I love hearts! I love the shapes and all of the possibilities. These two wall hangings begin with a jean fabric base and one of my favorite fabrics, the floral print that the hearts are cut from. The heart shapes are bordered by a dyed leaf trim, and are surrounded by silk ribbonwork flowers and leaves, and silk ribbon embroidery.
Many of you know that I love hearts! I love the shapes and all of the possibilities. The base of this heart-shaped wall hanging is made from two cotton batik fabrics, strip pieced together with a v-shaped section in the middle of the heart. The embroidered flowers and leaves are worked in silk embroidery ribbon, silk floss, and buttonhole twist. Sequins, glass beads, buttons and flower shaped rondelles were added in for details. Rayon cord was couched around the outer edge. The stitches and example can be found The Embroidery Book.

Many of you know that I love hearts! I love the shapes and all of the possibilities. “Lovely Silk Gardens Wallhanging” is a project from my book Embroidered and Embellished. There are four heart shaped appliques which started as a hanky. The silk ribbon ebmroidery stitches were worked in sizes 7mm, 4mm, and 2mm. The additional embroidery stitches were worked in cotton and silk floss. Embellishments include heart shaped buttons, leaf shaped buttons and dragonfly and butterfly charms.
