Hearts of Love

Last week I showed the beginnings of my latest project for myself. 

This week I have made progress. Each heart has been appliqued down in various styles and I have begun giving them each their own personality. 

This one is my first attempt at couching twisted ribbon.

This one I am reviving my hand embroidery skills on. The one in the right hand corner is attached with a blanket stitch using perle cotton black thread in #8 I love daisies so had to add this scrape to the piece. 

Progress to date:

I plan on only doing hand work on this wall hanging so after I get through with embellishing the hearts I will hand quilt the background and finish off the edges with either a border or frame. 

I plan on cleaning and rearranging my studio in preparation for Holiday creating. I also need room for new items when they are complete. Towards that end I am having a 15% off sale in my Etsy store, daytonadamsel.etsy.com, on every thing but sale items.  

Want an additional 5% off go to artyah.com then my gallery DaytonaDamsel, no direct link as of yet, find something you like and message me telling me you saw this blog post and I will give you the 15% plus 5%, a total of 20% on your total purchase. While you are there check out the other galleries and great artist. This is another selling site in its infancy with great customer service. 



  1. Wow, nice work on the hand stitching!

  2. I love the look of handmade. So homey!! Will you be making a bed size quilt or a wall hanging?

  3. So pretty, Debbie. You do good work. ;)

  4. Oh these are so sweet and pretty! Gorgeous hand work :)

  5. Debbie,
    You have given me inspiration to finish a Thanksgiving quilted wall hanging I started over 22 years ago. Now if I can just find it!

  6. Your hearts are so unique... each one does seem to have her own personality. Great job.
