~ February 1st Offerings ~

The flowers of late winter and early spring 
occupy places in our hearts 
well out of proportion 
to their size. 
~ Gertrude Smith Wister (1905–1999)

Welcome February ~ Welcome Friends & Folk!

Another humble embroidery folk heart for you...
I love creating these, 
... letting my needle lead my imagination & hand...

"Garden Lady"
~ Embroidered Folk Heart ~
approx. 6" x 10"

The heart is made from a beautiful palest blue cotton fabric
with faded floral colors of dusty mauve, violet & greens...

threads used are Valdani pearl cottons,
~ DMC floss and Gentle Art Sampler Threads...

stitches I've used include:
satin stitch, stem stitch, french knot, spiderweb stitch, straight stitch, bullion stitch
and dimensional picot stitch...

you can see how my needle-woven leaves
 seem to 'grow' from the fabric ~

The backing fabric is chocolate colored prairie cloth,
and I've stitched on my label so you can remember where it came from ~

I've stuffed this Folk Heart with fabric scraps and wool snippets
for a nice old & heavy feel and can be used for a pincushion or display.

Thank you so very much!

Happy Valentines Day to you!
