Still trying to recover
7 weeks and counting
Studio time in my pajamas
 Several yards of distressed burlap,
jute, buttons and wool.

a mended heart

Feels good to hear the whir of the machine
 and feel the rough/soft juxtaposition of fabrics.
Anthropologie candle burning, twinkle lights on.
I need to spend more time here.
Perhaps that is the prescription I need.

i belong to you
you belong to me
you're my sweetheart

wools felted in

and yes I'm selling,
perhaps reopening my shop..
day by day
waiting to see where I'm going.

a few hearts here and there around oldgreymare

Happy Valentines Day

Oh Z,
Your hearts are lovely and so beautifully made. You are SO clever.
Happy Valentines Day to you and yours. XXXX

Z I hope you are feeling better every day! Love your hearts and wish I could create like you. Do you stamp your own words on fabric to make the ribbon? I hope you do open your shop again!
Again my thanks for the awesome package you sent me! You will see the gifts soon on my blog!

Happy Valentine´s Day

Oh, Z, you are SO creative!! These little burlap hearts are absolutely beautiful!!! All of your work is! I wish I could gently tap you on the shoulder with a magic wand and your health would be 100% "improved and splendid"...let's just think in that direction and take in all of the sunshine (both real and heartfelt) we possibly can. :) Blessings, my friend. I continue to look for your posts and consider you my Friend From the West in the cloud. Peace and Grace~

I love the hearts you made me a few years ago. I still keep them in a pretty bowl on my nightstand.

I'm so sad to hear you still have this nasty bug...that's one thing I've noticed about it, people seem to have it a long time. I know you are taking good care of yourself. I am wishing it away for good.


Robin Larkspur said...

Beautiful hearts and sentiments, Z! Perfect for February love.
Please get strong and well soon.
I think it would be great if you re-opened your shop.

Nella said...

Get better, please! N.xo

Someone who creates such beautiful hearts must have a lovely one herself.
Wishing you a speedy complete recovery very soon.

Beautiful hearst you've created! I wanted to stop in today and wish you a Happy Valentine's Day, sweet Z!

I came down with some flu bug after my Show and still don't feel quite right with no energy....must have overdid it!

Take care, my friend,
