Project 365, Hearts, Day #119 (849)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #129 (849).


I spent most of the day in the studio cutting, prepping and sewing.  I don't like to repeat a heart but this is a new wallet I made today.  All the hand cut hearts around it are my prep work for other wallets.  The cutting and prepping of the fabric takes just as long as the actually sewing.  I use a fusible woven interfacing on all of my cotton fabrics to give them strength and durability, it works great, it's just a time involved process.  Well I guess that's all for now, I still have a little work to do.  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #118 (848).


A fun one I think tonight.  Simple enough but I really like the way it turned out.  That's all for me.  Chris got up at 5 am this morning, which means I was up.  I tried to go back to sleep but it just didn't work, so I am pretty tired.

Have a great evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you had a good day. Here is my heart for day #117 (847).


I finished this one and then I was thinking I have done something similar to this before.  I am sure that could be the case but I just don't remember right now.  This is what I have for you tonight though.  That's all for me.  Thanks for stopping by and have a good night.

Take care,

Project 365, Hearts, Day #116 (846)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice weekend.  Here is my heart for day #116 (846).


Just a quick pattern again for tonight.  I was sewing again today and tonight but spent the last hour or so, trying to fix my machine.  I changed a needle and all of the sudden it wasn't working properly.  I'm not sure what I did but I think I got it fixed.  I had to walk away for now because I was getting frustrated.  That comes with trying to do to much at the last minute, I'm sure, and I usually end up with some sort of problem.  This should teach me to do more thoughout the year and not just before my show.  : )   That is always my intent but I just never seem to make it happen.  Hopefully I can do better. Well that's all for me.  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #114 (844).


An illustration for tonight.  I did sew a little today but nothing with a heart on it.  So just a simple pattern idea with my multiple line design, one of my favorite things to do.  Well that's all for me.  Have a great weekend!  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,

Project 365, Hearts, Day #113 (843)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #113 (843).


Hot off the presses, a new flip wallet with a heart.  I have made the flip wallets before but the heart is a new addition.  The heart is attached with free motion appliqué.  Today is the first day I played with this technique also.  I knew my machine had the capability to do that technique but I never tried it before.  I did a few practice tests with scraps and then decided to give it a go for my flip wallet.  I think it came out great.  Chris liked it so much he said he wanted it, (he even offered to buy it).  I can honestly say I didn't think he would want one with a heart on it.  He has one of my Marvel ones, so I was thinking something still along that line for him.  

So another item for my show next week.  I need to start making some multiples of these items now.  I will also be putting them up on my Etsy site after the show.  I need to take some nice photos before I list the items.  That's all for now. Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.  

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Hearts, Day #112 (842)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #112 (842).


A few hearts for you tonight and something different.  I thought of this idea a while ago but my studio was such a mess I couldn't even begin to design and sew them.  My studio still needs a few more things organized but it is workable, so here I have a heart change purse.  The three show the prototype to final stages, starting from the top down.  The first is a rough sewn heart to see if the size and the pattern work.  The second is almost complete, I just needed to tweek the pattern a bit to allow for the zipper.  The third is the final product and ready for production.  I really like the way this turned out and it came together pretty good and quick (as far as number of prototypes I needed).  

I have a last minute show I signed up for next weekend, so I will be adding these to my offerings.  Well I guess that's all for now.  I will be working in the studio tomorrow as well, so maybe I'll have another heart for you in fabric.  Thanks for stopping by!

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #111 (841).


Molly had a dentist appointment today, so I had about an hour to work on my heart while I was there.  I haven't done the stipple look in a while so I thought it was a good choice.  These take a little more time, and I enjoy doing them, so it's nice when I have a that extra time.  

Well I guess that's all for now.  Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #110 (840).


Just playing with illustration and different details.  I hope to work on some fabric ideas soon, so it's nice to have different images to look back on when I start that process.  

I had my cake class at the high school today and it went well.  I usually get invited to go in twice a year to teach the kids some decorating techniques.  It's always cool to see what the kids come up with during the class.  

That's all for now.  Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you had a good weekend.  Here is my heart for day #109 (839).


A bunch of hearts and I decided to highlight a few with color pencil.  I like the simplicity of this and the little pops color.  That's all for me tonight.  I just spent two hours making royal icing flowers for my cake class tomorrow and I am pretty tired.  Have a good night and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #104 (834).


Trying to think of different ways to do my hearts but it is getting a little difficult, especially when I am tired.   I think I get in a rut every now and then, wondering how I am going to do over 200 more hearts.  I will keep trying though.   That's all for now.  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,

Just a quick one tonight.  My brother and his family ended up stopping by for the night so it has been a great day and evening hanging out.  I am just getting my heart it in under the wire.  That's all for now.

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #102 (832).


I did all the hearts with lines first and didn't care for it as much.  When I added the dots, they added just enough interest that I liked it more.  That's all for me.  I am really tired tonight.  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you had a nice Saturday.  Here is my heart for day #101 (831).


We are in Morro Bay visiting with my brother and his family.  They are in from Buffalo, NY and really enjoying the weather here.  We went for a really nice walk in a park along the sea edge.  It was a beautiful walk with great views of the ocean.  On the way back I made my heart along the side of the path.  Some pretty red and orange colored rocks.  That's all for now, we are on our way to dinner.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great night.

Take care,

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #99 (829).



We had a lot of time at the airport lounge, so I got to spend that time on my heart.  I decided to just play with differnt patterns.  Not super intricate patterns but still enough to keep your eye moving around the piece.  I could have spent more time and added smaller details but sometimes I am a little nervous to do that.  We did have to pack up and get to our gate so that is also why I stopped.  Well that's all for me.  I hope you enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

I wanted to get my heart done earlier today because we have tickets to a later show and I'm not sure when we will get back.  A simple pattern for you today.  I like hiding parts of the hearts behind other objects/images.  That's all for me.  Have a good day and thanks for stopping by.

Hello,

Chris and I are in Vegas for two nights, so that is where my inspiration came from for tonight.  A simple design of all those lovely images on those cards, that you could win big or loose big.  : ). Luckily we aren't gambling tonight, so no money gained or lost.  (Usually lost if I play). That's all for now I am try into get this posted before midnight.  Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Easter, Happy Passover or just Happy Day to you!   Here is my heart for day #95 (825).


I hope you had a good day and got to spend some time with family relaxing and enjoying the day.  My hearts today remind me of a cherry blossom.  I like the simplicity and I like the way this one came out.  That's all for me now.  I am hoping to relax the rest of the evening.  Thanks for stopping by!

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #94 (824).


We decorated eggs tonight, so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to do a different heart for tonight.  I have a few pics so you can see the different angles.  I think it came out pretty good.  This was actually a brown egg, so it was easier to see where I drew with the crayon, one nice advantage.  We had a fun time decorating the eggs and there were some cool ones and some funny ones.  Well that's all for now.  Have a good night and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,

A nice geometric block heart for tonight.  I like the way this one turned out.  Relatively simple but I think all the lines make it look a little more complex.  That's all for tonight.  Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,

I have an origami heart for you tonight.  I made an origami lotus flower for a small gift for Hannah, so I thought it would be nice to try an origami heart.  You can't tell from the front but there are quite a few folds to make this simple heart.  I think it is a fun change.  That's all for now.  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly
