It’s a new heart today – a bargello heart.
If you are new to my Hearts for Hospice series you can find all my posts in the right side bar under categories – needlepoint – hearts for hospice. Hopefully these designs will give you inspiration and ideas to stitch a heart yourself. Remember, all of these hearts can be stitched with left over threads so they make great stash buster projects!
Today’s heart is stitched on 18 count canvas. Dominique used a bargello pattern called “Hearts with Bargello Pattern” offered in Needlepointers, the July/August/September 2019 issue. It is designed by Melita Glavin and found on page 30 of the issue.
Dominique used some of my threads in the pattern but many from her own stash. All were very small volumes, less than 2 meters. I love how she created dark in the top half and light in the lower half with her colour choices. The addition of a very fine metallic adds just a bit of bling – I like bling!
The Hearts for Hospice project was initiated in 2015 by the Greater Kansas City Needlepoint Guild to fulfill a need at a local hospice center. Since then it has grown significantly. I am starting to see lots of hearts in my Facebook groups – so much inspiration!
So, how about attempting a bargello heart.
Get stitching ladies!
