~Have a Heart~

Hello, dear friends!

Tis the season for HEARTS, one of my FAVORITE THINGS!!!

I have been keeping busy stitching and punching some new lovelies
that I hope to be offering very soon!!

Both designs are by the very talented Lori Brechlin,
of Notforgotten Farm,
and I must say that I just adore both of them!



The first one is called Love Shack!
I would be over the moon happy to live in a little "shack" like that!
Wouldn't you??


I added a twill tape hanger and it has a black wool back!!
So sweet!



The second one is called Sampler Heart!
I am really happy with the colors I chose
and think it is so very pretty!!


I even added a red chain stitch to the twill tape hanger
and a red wool back
just to add a bit more of my favorite color!!!
Hope you like it!! 

**********

I am hoping to get more things finished up for an Update in the near future 
so please be watching for that soon!!

Wishing you All those things that makes your Heart Happy~

Julie

Hi Bobbie, Lori, and Janice,
You are all so very sweet and kind!! Thanks for your encouraging words!! I think we ALL love Lori's designs!! She is so very generous to allow us to be able to create with them!!!
Hope I can get some more things made, but time just seems to zip by too quickly, doesn't it??

Both of your hearts are beautiful, love the prim look.
I have been making a lot of brighter things, they really don't match my decor.

Julie, your work is always exquisite. I think you do a top-notch job every time.
I love your work even though my home isn't prim.

Hi Debbie and Julia,
Thank you both for your visit and kind words!! I truly appreciate it so much!!
I definitely LOVE the primitive look, but also those bold and bright colors as well!! I guess we all tend to gravitate toward certain colors and tones, but can still love the whole box of crayons, right?? Its ALL GOOD!!!
Hope you both have a wonderful weekend!

Hello Dear Julie.... Surprised to see me here in Blogland, huh???? Well, I have missed you all so much that I am thinking of trying to dip my toes back in the water.... I know I will never “catch up” or “keep up,” but that is one thing I love about my blog pals’ hearts...they accept you for what you are and always seem to welcome you back (no matter how many returns you make) with open arms LOL. Your newest hearts, as always, are amazing. A combination of Lori’s wonderful designs and your precise and perfectionist touch can only end up in an incredible result. That little love shack piece is just adorable. I hope all is well...and hope to visit more frequently... Happy 2019 to you sweet friend... Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

I , too, love Lori's designs. I have hooked and punched more of her designs than any other designer.
Beautiful finishes, as always!

Hi Robin and Lauren,
So nice to have you both stop by for a visit!!!

Robin, it is indeed a WONDERFUL SURPRISE to hear from you, dear friend!! Have thought of you many times and just so happy you are back!! The beauty of blogging is THERE ARE NO RULES!! Those who love to hear from you will be there when you post and ready with words of encouragement AND open arms!! You TRULY HAVE BEEN MISSED!!! WELCOME BACK!!!!! Thank you for your lovely words and just know how much I appreciate them!! xoxoxo

Lauren, I think all of us gravitate to certain artists and designers and Lori's work just seems to speak to me, as it does to you!!!
Thank you for your kind words, my friend!!

Hope you both have a wonderful weekend and a creative week!!
Big Heart Hugs to you both~

I am sure you are surprised to see me too!! I have not posted in a while as seems as though it is easier on "Facebook". I do visit Blog posts but sometimes don't leave a message. I am trying to improve!

Always enjoy seeing what you are creating and never disappointed as you are so creative.

Happy New Year to you and your family!!

Hug's, Carolyn

Julie - My Primitive Heart said...

Hi Carolyn,

Hi Julie, well you are punchin' some more wonderful heart designs ... looking great too.
We are finally getting drenched here in the valley and LOTS of snow in the mountains. Wished it could be like this more often. Great feeling to be indoors where it is warm and nice and cozy ... punchin' or appliquein' time for me.
Looks like I am again able to leave comments ... better not say that too loud.
Have a great week and remember to "Take JOY and CREATE", as I know you will.
Peace and Blessings for all, Barb

Kurt Schindler said...

Both are lovely, Julie. Perfect color combinations.

Hi Barb and Charlotte,
So very nice to have you both visit with me!!

Barb, I am so very happy you can leave comments, too!! Thank you for all your encouraging comments!! Lately I have been a Punching fool!!! We have also had some rain here and much cooler temps for us!! Funny to see all the snowbirds who visit that are wearing shorts!!! Hope you enjoy your "nesting and creating" time!!!

Charlotte, I just love the colors in both of these pieces, too!! I did change them up a bit to suit my taste, but they are lovely in the original plan as well!! Color is so much fun to play with!!!

Hope you both have a wonderful and creative week!!!

Heart Hugs~
