Healing hearts






I started stitching patchwork hearts back in January. It just felt right to make something with such an obvious symbol of love while I was feeling the way that I was. I continued making hearts in February because I just felt compelled to keep going. This month I assembled all my hearts into this quilt top. And I've included a little note on the back as to why. A personal love note to myself in a time where I've felt so anxious, uncertain and untethered. Making something with my own two hands has always been a sort of therapeutic practice for me. This one even more so.

Beautiful! And I'm a firm believer that love is the biggest necessity and anything that hurts isn't love... and I'm a firm believer that the backing to that quilt is divine... :) LOVE!!!
