Heartfelt February ~ Day 19

I finished embroidering this little heart on a dishtowel just before the light 
left my back porch for the day - right in the nick of time to take a photograph!
One of my goals for this year is to improve my hand embroidery, so this is a start.

I'm enjoying my theme for this month - hearts are fun to do - and I'm thinking of setting a theme for March. I'm actually excited each day, thinking about what I'll make and being excited by creativity gives me a little buzz. Of course, I'm also doing all the things I usually do, but in the back of my mind, I'm looking forward to the time in the day when I can sit down and create.

A very nice way to spend the winter!

Hope you've had a wonderful day!

Oh, what a great idea...to keep the creative momentum going with another theme for March! I know that having a theme helps me focus. Very sweet stitched heart.

Hand stitching has such appeal. I saw a quilt at my guild meeting last night that was all machine done. No heart in that, no soul. Your work, however, breathes feeling. Tender, sweet, real.
