A Change Of Heart ..

Hello my dear friends,

I am really liking the waste not idea of mine and over the weekend I made two more of them. I swear I am addicted to making pin cushions and a tiny part of me would like to even have a little shop just with pincushions for sale. Addicted ? ... YES!!!

 But ... I had a change of heart about these. My daughter Ashleigh told me that these little felted hearts are too beautiful to be pincushions and that I should give them a different purpose and then I remembered ... some time ago she had a very neat idea that she told me about and she told me that these hearts are exactly what she meant. She came up with this idea when I made one of my felted nests and there were leftover little pieces of the felted sweaters and why not make small hearts out of the felted wool fabric.

The thought was and is to gift a loved one or somebody that just needs to know that you care one of these hearts so they know that they are not alone and loved and someone is thinking of them.
 So ... my 'Waste~Nots' are no longer just something made up from leftovers but each one now have a new very special purpose and meaning as a  'Heart~Felt'.

This is my Violet 'Heart~Felt'.

...and I know there will be more of these pretties in the future.
I hope you are well and life is treating you kind my dear friends.
Have a peaceful and creative day,
Karen B.
