The beading on the heart is complete! For a small piece, only about 2 1/2"x3", it amazes me how long it took to finish and how many beads it took!
The original idea for this involved setting it on a piece of embroidery done in pale neutral shades on a square of oatmeal colored linen. While I liked the concept, the reality of it didn't quite live up to my expectations, so I am playing with some other ideas such as surrounding the heart with this lovely bit of lace.
Thank you so much for all the comments and concerns about my fall. They given me much encouragment through the past few days! I continue to heal and am looking forward to the staples coming out this week and hoping that the headaches subside soon!
