Here are the last three completed hearts made for the HGTV swap. I really should have used a different background to take the pictures, but to late now. They are in the mail going to Nicki in MA. I might add that I really don't handle deadlines to well. I begin to feel a hot flash come over me the moment I think of a deadline date. LOL! I don't recall having that sort of feeling in the working world. I think some of it relates to perfectionism. While working on these hearts I would lay this out and then that out and would spend hours trying to get just the right embellishments. I know it doesn't really look like that but trust me, I spend to much time thinking. I guess if you do it long enough it becomes easier and you spend less time thinking and more time doing. At least I hope that is the case or I am a lost cause. LOL
Now tell me, what was I thinking to only put those 4 pink beads along that seam without any stitching. Coming to my rescue I rationalize that the space really wasn't that big, I couldn't place anything too close to the seam allowance in case someone planned on using the sewing machine to finish the hearts into maybe a pillow.
In case I didn't mention it before each heart is 6-1/2" unfinished. I basted around the 6" section and then left plenty of seam allowance for those just in case situations. They can always be cut down, but a little difficult to add anything back on. :))
