Back to simple hearts again.  I have so many heart designs in my sewing box, they will be popping up for the rest of the year.  This one is on pink felt, blanket stitched to card.  A piece of nylon knitting ribbon down the (almost ) centre.  originally, I had just the three hearts, which were cut from a six petalled felt flower, but as I was working with a friend,  I was inspired to put the teeny tiny tassels on the bottom of each and three gold seed beads. I did think about adding some text, but my friend Lisa is the expert at that - see her ATCs

I am making a lot of progress with my TT challenge now that I have decided which one to do.
This weekend (Labour day here), is our local art and quilt show, so I will be out and about patrolling the aisles and chatting, making teas, etc for three whole days.  Now making ATCs this weekend will be a challenge in itself!  Let's see how I go!

Life is the only art that we are required to practice without preparation, and without being allowed the preliminary trials, the failures and botches, that are essential for training.

Is life Art?
Or is Art Life?
If you can't make your mind up - you're an artist.
