New Heart..

It's still hot here in Perth, Western Australia, but I just can't stand not having anything to stitch while watching TV in the evening.
It seems such a waste of time to just sit and do nothing.
I had this lovely mermaid print and I was keen to make it up in a heart for the Chain of Hearts swap.
So with all my threads and underwater charms by my side, I positioned myself under the air conditioner and happily stitched to my hearts content.
Feather stitch is a great one for the seaweed, so I did lots of feather stitch in a shiny green rayon DMC thread and coral silk thread for some coral.
I embroidered some little fish in gold thread, swimming among the seaweed.
This heart will be a hard one to part with..


  1. Hi Julia, it's hot here too, we've not had much below 42, and as high as 48 ... ugh! Long hot Summer. This heart is just so sweet, I love all the details and each time I looked, I found something new to spy. Try and keep cool ...

  2. You have such a wonderful eye for the details... I love how you work a piece as a whole instead of following the seams.
