caring for the heart



as that day approaches
let us remember all our heart of hearts


The "phases of the heart: for the lost, broken, forgotten" is no. 20 in a series that i've been stitching for  the year, 2014.

"prevailing winds" is no. 19.(below)


Each piece is about 9x9, the white base.  The center is roughly 6x6, center.  These are my memory keepers for the year.  And, isn't everything we do, in a way, a memory keeper? 

I have a template that I sometimes use to pin out ideas and or make "meaningful comments" to myself.  It passes the time.


So far, this year to date, in 2014. 
Treat hearts kindly.  
Thank you for stopping by if you still remember this place.

    1. Hi Mo...i'm not totally decided on how these will end up but i'm thinking of binding them somehow. really simple stab-stitch probably. thank you.
