Chenille heart


Haiku my heart
 
 

stacks of red fabric  
eight sewn together in strips
cut, frayed, Chenille
~
 
I love chenille
It is a strong beautiful fabric
Survivor of many cuts and stitches, 
 yet as soft and resilient
as we are.

  1. The haiku has taught me something about this fabric. Now, I can identify it and know some of it's properties. Thanks for the lesson. You wove these words together well. Nice heart!


    Peace

  7. "Now what?" the Heart cries.
    "Surely I have been made for bigger things, I know I have, I am quite sure."
    There is a pause before Gemma responds.
    "Dear Heart, you are bigger than you know,
    just stay true."

    to be continued...

    Everything you do Gemma
    is such an act of love.

    ♥♥♥

    1. I made the chenille by sewing those 8 layers of heart shaped fabric together, cutting and fraying it

  11. I love the frayed edges of the fabric...sort of like a heart that's been through a lot.
