Sharing Love

The reason I began this blog was to share something I love, inkle weaving.

But, there are many things that I love, including love itself and the many ways we as humans share it. 

I enjoy stories of love in action, how people help each other out.

When someone captures a beautiful image and shares a photo, or draws, paints or crafts something beautiful, they are sharing what stirs their hearts. I particularly like heart art and always snap an image when I find one out in the world. Click on any image to enlarge it. 

And, if you have lovely heart art, feel free to add a comment to this post! <3

When I was a teenager, I loved the visionary art of Joseph Parker
and recently rediscovered it. Wowza!
I still love it just as much! 

What I really wanted to share with you on this Valentine's Day 
is this pattern which I recently created for Baltic-style pickup. 
I'm including two slightly different variations because I couldn't decide which one I liked better.  

Links are given below each so that you can open them in the Pattern Editor where you can edit, 
save or print them to use. 



And in case you have never seen it, this is a sweet inkle project from my friend Jennifer Williams. She wrote a tutorial for weaving this heart from inkle bands
