An other Grandmother's


Yesterday I made a Grandmother's heart again. I still have some pieces from her nightgown and napkins.
I have added 2 buttons from old pillowcases too.
The embroidery is modest again, I will not "disturb" the delicate fabric so much.

An other blue


Today I finished the fifth blue heart, the shells are from an old neckless. I got that from an uncle at the time I was a little child. He bought the neckless in Aden, A town on the shore of the Red Sea in the middle east. I never wore the neckless the last 30 years, so I decided to use those pretty tiny shells for the hearts.
One more blue heart to go....

Stamp From France


Today I made a new heart, with new colors, blue.
This one has a print in the middle, I made the siggie myself.
A stamp from France, it is a painting from Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and I like its colors.
I did some silk embroidery too, my first attempt on the SRE way.......
