Beige heartI've got a lotta heart. Or rather, hearts. For some reason, I like to hang them on door handles, be it closets, cabinets--whatever, and I thought I'd share them. I've been collecting them for a couple of years now. I've got them made from old patchwork quilts (and wouldn't you know I didn't photograph those ones), some that were meant to be Christmas tree ornaments, and some that were just meant to be hung on ... doors.

This fourth one was made by my mother, and it's probably my favorite. She made it out of scraps she had on hand, and used her embroidery sewing machine (doing the crazy quilt stitch--whatever that's officially called).

I really like the beaded one (yup, a Christmas ornament), which is probably my second favorite.Hanging Star
Okay, there is a star that snuck in there, too. (Yup, another Christmas ornament). And there's a round one, too -- that was a yard sale find.Ribbon heart
