More needlework

Another heart is done, I want to frame it tonight or tomorrow. It seems like I will have quite a lot of them soon. I still obsessed with combination of gray and red, so simple and so darling! I started another, tiny one, two days ago, but not finished it yet.
I found one more heart in my closet, and want to show it to you also. I made it five or six years ago, when I was in the mood for quilting. I still miss doing it, but our house not to large and I don’t have special place to keep my sewing machine. One day… May be…

There is a needlework I finished recently. Unfortunately, I didn’t have appropriate fabric, and I used usual canvas. It would be much better to use silk or hand-dyed light green or blue cotton. Oh, well – next time I will know what to use!
Anyway, it is good for me to exercise new techniques and create new patterns. It helps to stretch skills and learn something new.
