Tinker Verve

creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results

OH! my…

I used my newly acquired needle-turn applique' skills for this heart

For my 4th block of my 1″ Life Sampler, I’ve skipped ahead to 1982 which was the year that I gave my heart away for the first and last time.  Mr T. and I had been dating {off & on} for 9 months before I realized that I really loved this guy…that was July of 1982.  He asked me to marry him on my 19th birthday, August 13th, 1982.

I picked up this perfectly, aged piece of bark cloth at the thrift store yesterday.  For a split second I thought, “Do I really want this?  It is kind of ugly!”  When I got it home, I could only say, “OH, my!”

It is perfect!

I love it!

It goes especially well with my new burlap.

I’m so glad I bought it!

Look at that glorious texture.

I wish there had been more…
