First Heart

Hi -

I have finished the front of my first piece, and since we're traveling until the beginning of March, it won't get completed until then. I'm now deciding what to do with the heart shape I'm using, as I had meant each to be a necklace, but I feel the heart is too large. So, now I need to decide if it is a pouch or wall hanging. I have until I return to decide. In the scan of it, I also didn't show the beaded bead I'm using. I'm creating a different beaded bead for each journal entry. Those I will be able to work on while away. Here is the link to see my first heart at Mermaid's Jewelz". When I complete it, I will write up the whole description for it, although I will tell you that I used the blues as we have had almost two weeks of really cold weather, like in the high 30s, low 40s to mid 50s, which is really cold for SE FL. This may not be cold for where you live, but it's very cold for where I live.

I've also started a blog in which I mention this project and Robin's site is linked to. It called Susan's Food for Thought, and bead embroidery is one aspect of it.

Your heart is wonderful, Susan! I love the colors, texture and flow in it!!!! I picture a long, narrow shadow-box with your hearts mounted two across and six down on a black background. Oooooh! Great that you got a blog started too! Have fun in CA... hope the rain stops and it gets good and warm while you're there.

I absolutely envy you your design sense. The way the beads "flow"...

I was also wondering what size it is.

It's gorgeous and I agree with Robin: it would look fabulous displayed in a shadow box with it's compatriots...

The heart measures 3 5/8" wide x 3 1/8" high. I'll consider having them all together in a shadow box. I was going to put last years in a wall hanging too, and so far, I have them sitting on a shelf, waiting for me to complete the project.
