a little love for you...
just a small cloth, a little bit of love stitched up this week. jude has been stitching lots of hearts lately, and she has inspired me to try one of my own. a heart of silk and wool, reminiscent of the danish christmas hearts we make (my viking heart, perhaps?) nestled on a turbulent ocean of blue silk, cotton and linen. frayed bits of hand dyed silk create froth and foam atop the pitching waves. and a few words to bring it all together (west coast love, as margie so succintly put it).
in the spirit of that sentimental holiday approaching, i'd like to give this one away. please leave a comment before monday, february 14, at 5pm pst, if you would like a little piece to remind you of your love for the sea. it has a small grommet and a twist of wool for hanging. or use it as a bookmark. or just for holding. it measures 4.5" x 9.5". i will use the random number generator to pick someone, and notify in a follow-up post.
wishing you warms hearts this weekend. the gloom yesterday has carried over into a heavy deluge through the night and this morning. my plans for going out and getting some stuff done are fighting against my urges to curl up on the couch with some stitching or a book.
