it was really cold here the last days (down to -16°celsius)
and we have snow now.
good for winter sports enthusiasts, but i prefer non slippery roads;)
not really arrived in the new year yet...
going through my stashes (trying to get a bit organized) and through my WIP pieces i found this one (i don´t even remember when i started it...) and thought it was high time to "Frame" it.
the Little bits and pieces already were sewn on, just the blue border to make.
i have some some more Votive hearts (bought in an antique shop; they are from the first half of the 20th century) - so i´m planning to make a series.
this heart measures 10 cm (4 Inch), the whole square is about 20 cm (8 Inch).
i love blue, and i love These selvedges on some fabrics,
so this one was perfect for me. Little wooden beads going with the Colors of the rest of the piece...
sewed my monogram onto the backside and called it done.
as we had celebrated Christmas with the "nuclear familiy" (the 4 of us),
we decided to meet with some of the "in-laws" on sunday. we enjoyed lunch in a Restaurant (with my mandatory pils;)). the fried sweet potatoes were a nice decoration.
