Trimmed with wool Penny Tongues ...

Yes, I like the wool penny tongues but displayed 
on my tobacco basket.  
Too busy for me.
I still like the gold wool background the most.  
But then that's me.
You can take your pick or do something totally different.
This will become a pattern, "HEART to HEART",
  inspired by traditional 'FRAKTUR' designs.
 Love is always in season for us, not just for February 14th.
St Valentine's Day is shared with 
'Ash Wednesday' this year. 

I would love to see it done up as a pillow... 
now why did I not do this?
I still can, the backing is finished with soft flannel 
and can be easily appliqued on a lovely wool pillow. 
Hope to have the pattern on my Etsy in a day or two.
Still a little under the weather with this eye lid surgery and now topped off with what is more commonly know as 'Nasopharyngitis' - or what I call Acute Post Nasal Drip, accompanied with 
a warning that the cough could last 6-8 weeks.
Any ways my creative friends... Hope your day and week is a healthy one.  6 to 8 more weeks???  Holy C-w!
Thanks so much for the visit ... they are always appreciated.

Warm wishes and Peace for all,


  1. Hi Barb,
    Your new piece is just lovely and looks so good with the tobacco basket! It would look good in a number of places and I'm sure whoever makes it will have fun deciding! I think it would look good as a pillow, too!!
    Hope your eyes continue to get better and heal soon!!!
    Enjoy your week, my friend!
    Heart Hugs~

  2. I like the gold wool brightens up the design and makes it more Spring-like, rather than just Valentine's. I know I am ready for Spring....the extra daylight at the end of the day sure is helping to lift my spirits! :-)

  3. Your finishes are always perfect, Barb.
    I hope you are back to your healthy self very soon.
    Hugs :)

  4. Thank you so much my friends. It was a fun project and now on to something different. Hooking? Got to try some of that with all the inspiration I have been seeing. It is warm and sunny here. Hope you are enjoying some of the same.
    Folk Art Hugs ladies, Barb
