1.23.12 Poor Little Heart

Find this here.

This is what I decided to do with myself on my first day as a self employed woman.  I made these little hearts out of scraps of hand dyed hemp canvas.  I didn't have any red embroidery thread, so I decided to make this one a little broken heart.  Because, well...sometimes love gets a little bit ouchy.  Always worth it, but it can leave us a little tender.  Thimbles used to be given by men to woman as a sign of a kiss.  A little secret kiss.  Isn't that sweet?  So I thought the two went nicely together.  I also organized  my sewing area a bit and decorated the wall in front of my sewing machine so I have something lovely to look at while I work.  And then the light outside got so pretty I  had to run into the orchard with my camera.  Buttercup was  my model.
