Heart #153

Template designed by: Mette Voldmester

Mette Voldmester has been inspired by the fairy tale "Den grimme ælling" (The Ugly Duckling" by H.C.Andersen when she designed this template. Since the author is the inventor of the weaved heart it seems very appropriate.

This is one of my absolute favorites, since that fairy tale is the one I love the most - and then there is my frenzy about rubber ducks ;o)

Heart #152


Template designed by: Mette Voldmester


A lot of Danes eat duck on Christmas Eve, originally it was goose that was served - however since goose were more expensive than duck, the common man usually had duck instead.

Adding one more tag to the hearts as from today, as I just learned another name for these hearts: braided heart.

Suddenly thinking of summer, sitting in a grassy field trying to spot some lucky clovers.

Heart #142

Finally up to date - this one looks like the one from yesterday, but is merely another interpretation of heart with hearts.

Heart #140

Better late than never I guess....??!!

Whoops slight delay



Somehow December equals a little bit of stress, so a little behind in posting of the weaved hearts. They are actually made, but need to locate them under the pile of last minute Christmas cards to be sent, some requests for my phototags and.... work *SIGH*

The weaved heart is an old Danish tradition, but it can still make it to the frontpage on magazines, so generation after generation can be taught how to make these :o)

Heart #121

Heart #120

Template designed by: Francis Jordt

The template is actually the same as Heart #116, the symmetric weave has just been slightly changed. The next two hearts will also be using the same to emphasize that one template can easily create different patterns.

Heart #119

Have had problems publishing the hearts since Friday, so today 3 will be posted.

This pattern came to mind the other day, when a crafty friend became grandmother for the first time :o)

Heart #108


Template designed by: Mette Voldmester.

The template was published in Hendes Verden #43 (Danish magazine) this year - and finding it in the magazine made me remember the template, that Mette designed 5 years ago (yesterday's post). Must admit I like this one better, as Rudolph now has his red nose o)
