Heart Art No. 20 - As you can see, I'm still stitching. It's just that it's so much fun to do on these cold, grey days...curling up under a quilt, whitefurrydog at my feet, a cuppacuppa and a little nibble, some jazz or classical music playing - makes.me.happy.
I cut my shapes free-hand...in previous pieces I drew a pattern - also free-hand - then traced it onto my fabric. But, since my shapes are so simple, that just seemed like too much work. Plus, I just like the sort of imperfection of the whole thing, including the wonky letters and words. Makes it seem old and comfy to me. The background is a piece of aqua-colored linen. Oh, how I love, love, LOVE stitching on linen. It may have ruined me for anything else. Although, this weekend I have an idea for some tea towels, so I'm going to stitch onto a flour sack towel. (See: quilt, furrydog, cuppacuppa above.)
I like this one so much, I think I might need to paint-collage it, also.
In other news, my "Bloom" painting made it onto an Etsy Treasury. I'm thrilled, delighted, and tickled pink! It's a very fun treasury, and you can see it over here.
Snow is threatening here in Portland, starting tonight. We've had pretty mild weather this winter, and with all the tomfoolery weather-wise in other parts of the country, I am not complaining one bitty bit. (See: quilt, furrydog, cuppacuppa above.) Stay warm and cozy, friends.
