Crazy...

Last week I saw "Crazy Heart" -
Kitsch, but good...
Inspired me to make myself a crazy heart...













Oh, still crazy...













... after all these years...













The letters I printed with my new vintage alphabet
stamp set...

It's good to be catching up with your innovative stitching projects-the Still Crazy heart is just beautiful and makes me feel young again-both because of the song and because I had a very similar stamp set when I was young-in England they were called The John Bull Printing Outfit.

This is so fabulous - I love it. And I adore the reality of my tree, too - thank you, it arrived safe and sound!

Heike,

What coincidence!
I recieved the lovely heart minutes after seeing you in Cloth Paper Scissors..

great shots and your creatures are gorgeous wqith their little noses, (schnable?)

And the one armed lady is my favourite.

Thank you so much again for swapping, I treasure this art.

I love the crazy heart - i too have tried crazy patchwork in neutrals - i find the usual colourful versions too much!!

ger hat gesagt…

Yes, Clare, you´re right - but old crazy quilts are wonderful - perhaps it just doesn´t work with new fabrics...
