A Grateful Heart with Tim Holtz Eclectic Elements

Hi Sweet Crafty Friends!

It is with a very grateful heart that I sit down to write this post today. Grateful that my colonoscopy is now OVER. Grateful that the results were negative and that I don’t have to do that again for another ten years. But mostly, SO grateful for all of your sweet comments and concern!

Sharing one of my shabby sweet sewing projects today. A very grateful heart, made with my latest crafty obsession, Tim Holtz Eclectic Elements fabric.

You may remember some similar vintage hearts that I made recently for my shop, right? This little cutie is made from all of the leftovers from that project. A little pile of crafty goodness that I couldn’t force myself to throw away. Just random shapes and sizes, curved edges and straight. All too pretty to go in the trash. Maybe it’s just me. But I cannot bare to let a single thread of this beautiful fabric go to waste. The solution? A bit of shabby patchwork, wonky style.

I really love how this turned out, with a bit of an overlap here, a bit of a bare patch there. Imperfect and shabby…. just how I like it. Topped with a few of my treasured vintage pearl buttons and velvet millinery pieces. And a hand-stamped banner flag, too.

Thanks so much for stopping by! And thank you all for your well-wishes! I am truly grateful for all of YOU!
