Another order-done

 The last few days have been spent fulfilling another order, not S.O.R this time.
I'd already made the Tweed Things the gallery wanted, and just had to spend a few days making silk Hearts, to go with some cuffs, so I thought I'd share them.

I had an annoying moment when I realised I'd spent ages on two gold ones and there was an obvious flaw in the fabric, so the above is one replacement, I replaced the other with a blue one.

These reds are my favourites but don't photograph well.

I think I like the one on the right with the navy stitching best.
There have to be silver ones too. Now, I've over cleverly edited this picture with the iphoto 'enhance' tool, and I don't think it does....enhance them I mean. They look a bit weary.
Speaking of silver and gold,
look at the sky we followed home from Haworth last Sunday.
We just had to stop and enjoy the sunset.

Now I am left with a sewing room like a tip after having to change boxes for posting my goods . 
The only one I could find had 'other stuff' in it.
What a mess!
I am going to tidy up and then have fun with felt.
Watch this space.

Hard pressed to choose a favourite, they are all lovely. A beautiful sunset too.

Luverly Luverly hearts ..just wondered what you did with the flawed ones ??? there are some loyal followers who would be happy to give a home to a flawed heart....hint hint .....x

Sheep Rustler said...

Going by the photos I think I liked the pink hearts the best, but I suspect that in real life I would like the steely blue ones even better. I do so love looking at your work!

Pam said...

Waiting eagerly for the felt results. x

I kbow you're not happy with the photo, but I do love those silver ones.

Twiglet said...

More gorgeousness for us to enjoy!! The hearts are great - especially the rich red ones.

Hurry up and get tidied and then we can see your fun with felt........... I love the red hearts, but I KNOW what you mean about red and photographs, I struggle terribly with photographing anything red.

These hearts are exquisite Jackie!Really, really beautiful. I love the different designs, they all work so well but the one with the five smaller hearts in a sort of flower shape really stands out. It's so unusual. I'm sure these will be a great success! We saw a sky like that on Saturday when the sun dipped behind Falkland hill. I need to get over to Twist Fibre studio to get more materials to try and capture it in felt. Our camera just doesn't take good sunset photos. Must invest in a better one. Maybe if I get one for my husband as a present............

gorgeous as ever.....I find that gorgeous is a perfectly adequate substitute for the ''b'' word!

Heather said...

Wonderful skies and beautiful, beautiful hearts. I love the gold one though never wear those colours. How annoying to find a flaw in the fabric after you had finished the heart. It's great to see a heart design that isn't cute or twee.

michelle said...

Love your hearts! You could make christmas decorations - even stuff 'em and they would become 3 dimensional!
As you know I cannot get out at the moment - just keeping picking up your lovely bag and smiling....

How beautiful. That red heart with the blue stitvhing really does sing and reminds me of poppies somehow.

Rachel said...

Gorgeous! And I don't just mean the sunsets either..!

Locket Pocket said...

They're BEAUTIFUL! Lucy x

Mary said...

I like the red with the blue stitching best too, but those first two pink/purple ones are so pretty - definitely my favorites.

QuiltNCards said...

Beauties! And which one was flawed? It's always the maker who sees the imperfection... I'd just say you meant to do it - it was an artistic choice. Shame to keep that one yourself... you should make it a "give away".

PINK HEARTS!! My cup runneth over ...

LOVE STITCHING RED said...

Oh goodness those hearts are so ab fab! Well done you! Has skinny mini started then? I signed up and I've been getting free textures from Kim but thought the lessons started on Nov 8th. Knowing me, I'm looking in the wrong place!

maggi said...

Absolutely gorgeous hearts. All are my favourites.

Diva Kreszl said...

the beauty of your work is amazing! thank for stopping by to visit and taking the time to leave me a message :)

urban craft said...

lovely all of them. The colours are absolutely stiking!

A Time to Dance said...

Oh Jackie these hearts are wonderful they have a medieval feel about them ...I am in love...

Greedy Nan said...

I particularly like the silver ones - can't actually believe they could be made from fabric. You use some great fabrics and I just LOVE velvet. So-o-o hard to get hold of any decent materials where I live.

Elizabeth said...

Oh these hearts are simply delicious!!!! they would make gorgeous Tree Ornaments!!!!! as well as brooches of Course!!!!

Kim said...

Jackie you just make magic!
