Heart to Heart

Back in October when I visited the Knitting & Stitching show I picked up some back issues of Stitch magazine. This issue jumped out at me because of all the colourful hearts on the cover, and on closer inspection there were several other lovely projects inside.

It's been a while since I did any creative activities. I just seem to be too tired to think in the evenings lately. But a couple of evenings ago I remembered this issue of Stitch and decided to have a go at making my own embroidered heart brooch.

It's probably a bit too busy, but I haven't decided yet. It's not a style that I've had much experience with, but I think I like it. I've got three more hearts prepped to go and I'm already thinking about different shapes. It'll be a great way to use up some of the multitude of fabric, ribbon and yarn scraps and buttons that I've accumulated.

  2. Great colours and such a good way of using up those small bits of ribbon, fabric and thread. I am sure you will GET energy from making these hearts - at your own pace, don't rush the work. Have fun!
