one secret spot

I've been working on a variety of hearts. This one is similar to the white sampler and is comprised of fabric, paper, beads, buttons and lace. It's a rustic piece with raw edges and I did enjoy making it. 

Earlier today I came across this quote by poet Louise Driscoll: "Within your heart, keep one still, secret spot where dreams may grow."


This is another view.  It is extremely cold here today.

This is really lovely. Hand stitching is so meditative.

It's so beautiful, both strong and fragile at the same time, just like our hearts.

Love this simple and pretty heart. The gate with the snow is a wonderful image, too.
