You can find Lori’s sawdust and all her other wonderful offerings by visiting her blog, here.

I couldn’t find a link specific to Maggie Bonanomi, but if you do a google search you’ll find lots of sites for her books and patterns.

hearts in hands….

It’s been a long time since I’ve done a heart in hand, but I came across this antique example and fell in love…..

“nobody, not even the rain, has such small hands” ~ e.e. cummings

Those gloves, worn and used, yet someone loved them, or the wearer, enough to encompass them… to create a work of art.  My version will never compare, of course, but, perhaps you’d like to join me in your own personal opus of these hearts in hands?

You should be able to grab the above and adjust it to whatever dimensions you’d like.  I’ve decided to stay very neutral, (whoa…. no way rebecca).  Here are the colors I’m planning to use:

hearts in hands colors

Reading from left to right, they are:  Valdani 5, 6, o549 and jp4.  I use, as always, two strands of #12 perle cotton in my medium Cameo punch needle, set at the lowest, #1, setting.

 

I would LOVE to see your version!

 

be well, and if you can’t be well, be HAPPY!
