I only had to rip out 1/2 of my heart...

but it made me happy in the long run,

and there was very little blood this time.


I did manage to cut off the ribbon I LATER remembered to sew in,

but figured out a way to put it back on.

Does that mean I am "destined" to sew????

Well, I have to say it was an easier learning curve than the DVD of photos I promised for my husband for a dinner we are hosting. (more on that next week)

MUCH easier.

But I doubt there will be any king-size quilt coming out of my sewing machine any time soon.

come see all the beautiful hearts at Mosaic Magpie!

Linking to Inspiration Friday


  1. Hooray! And I LOVE it.
    I'll be finishing mine up and posting it tomorrow.


  2. Lynn,
    I love it. Yes, you must sew! That is all there is to it!
    Big hugs,

  3. Ya done swell!

    I just had a thought.

    Maybe you could sew your new valances......................

  4. I love your hearts, Lynn! I have had plans to make some for my shop and just haven't gotten around to it yet! You're inspiring me!! Thanks!
    I adore the shabby edges, too!!!

    Have a glorious weekend gal!!

  5. Your Heart look wonderful.. I love the fabric you used. Are you sure there's not a quilt in your future.. Hope you have a happy
    day! Hugs, Linda

  6. And in the end....success was hers! The little blogger that could! I am so happy this was a positive experience and that you were involved in the swap! You did a great job!

  7. Ohhhh, Lynn! It's romantic and shabby and wonderful!!! I think more sewing is in your future! LOL!!! Happy Weekend! Hugs, Terri xoxo

  8. This is absolutely enchanting! I found you through Inspiration Friday....I'm your newest follower! :)

    Come visit! I look forward to checking back with you.


  9. Soo precious! I love me some birds!

  10. Well, bless your heart Lynn! Just couldn't resist saying that! That is absolutely darling and very "springy" and I am super impressed by your newbie sewing skills. I fully understand the "teach myself as I go" method and think that you have done a fantastic job. Thanks so much for linking this up to the party this week!
    P.S. I was just telling my sis the other day about your wet suit story from awhile back. LOL!

  11. your heart is wonderful...really really lovely...your hard work and determination paid off

    when you said half of your heart...it made me think of John Mayer's song ;)

    Mr Magpie finally chased the dust bunnies out of my sewing machine (they kept trapping the thread way down in the machine!) and I have been sewing too

    I am off to check out the link
    Happy weekend to you and yours from snowy Virginia

  12. Hi Lynn! Oh, I'm sorry you had to rip out half your tiny heart! :) Just kidding! Your little heart turned out so cute. I need to make some of these!
    Thanks for popping in to see me.
    be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  13. I love this! Major kudos to you for finishing it blood free.

    And I never saw this come up on the home page until this morning.


    Now, I'm wondering about other blogs. It does seem that I haven't had a lot new lately. I just thought people were busy.

  14. You're all heart!! Wow, those are wonderful. Hmmmm...will you be MY valentine??? Oh, I'm supposed to give YOU something if I say that! Really, they are fantastic! Another medium you can add to your repertoire (I sense that's spelled wrong). Go, sister, go!!

  15. Your heart turned out nice, I like your fabric selections.

    I've been sewing for 40 years but never with wax paper, how fun, who comes up with this stuff?!

  16. Your hearts turned out lovely, Lynn! Maybe the day will come and you will start a king size quilt :-).

  17. So lovely - I adore the photo you put on the heart. Amazing work!!
