Beauty of a Pieced Heart

The beauty of this pieced heart is very much an example of art imitating life.  None of us gets out of this life without heartbreak and disappointments.  However, putting yourself back together and finding a way to be happy is what makes us beautiful, interesting and one of a kind. 

This little piece is made with odds and ends and finished up with a little hand work.  It makes me smile just looking at it!

Thank you for bearing with my sentimentality today and I hope each of you can find a way to make something beautiful out of any odds and ends you happen to have laying around.....   ;)

Happy Sewing!

Hearts on the Brain

I have had hearts on the brain lately.  That is all I've managed to work on it seems.

I love the hand work on this one.

 Still have more hand work to add to this pieced heart.

And of course the close up so you can see the quilting.

It is a dreary and cold Monday......the perfect sewing weather.

Happy Quilting!
