Hearts and handwork
April 23, 2010 § 1 Comment
Recently a friend of mine from the States sent me a lovely package full of handworked hearts. The beautiful wooden box contained the blue cross-stitched pouch which contained a lovely fluorite heart and the two reverse applique hanging hearts. Aren’t they lovely? The box is less than 3″x3″x3″ so you can tell how small they all are. The stitching on the reverse applique hearts is invisible and the embroidery minute. Take a closer look…
I love traditional handwork whether it’s pottery or woodwork, knitting or embroidery, it adds a dimension of beauty to the everyday. There’s a lovely Islamic saying which goes “God is beautiful and He loves beauty”. I think that just about sums it up.
