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?

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!
