A Rose Heart ..

Hello my dear friends,

before you continue to read this post I need to share something with you about myself. When I say the following I truly mean it ~ I am awful at sewing with a sewing machine ...REALLY!! I so love to sew by hand because of the control I have over everything but depending which fabric you are using it is sometimes almost impossible to do by hand without breaking every other needle or worse injuring your fingers (I've done that many times before!). I do use my sewing machine once or twice a month and I did with this making. I am not sure if you can see how wiggly and crocked my sewing lines are and I almost didn't finish this creation because of that but in the end I did and never the less my heart smiles when I look at this creation even with bad sewing lines.

I went with the idea of the heart that I made me daughters for Valentine's Day but I used a more subtle color scheme this time and I must say it really worked out well in my eyes but I will leave you to make you own mind up.

This is my newest creation ...

... my Rose Heart.





I hope you like my latest creation!!!
It would be so nice if you were to visit me sometime again and until then ...
I hope you are well and life is treating you kind my dear friends.
Have a peaceful and creative day,
Karen B.
