Book Full of Inspiration

This books contains 150 hearts of inspiration - and the bonus: templates for each and every one. Maybe you have noticed that a lot the templates are designed from Knud Vægter, and thats because this book is a great inspiration to me.

Title translated to English is "That Is How My Mother Taught Me To Weave Christmas Hearts"

Heart #78

One more variation of the classic heart.... when Hans Christian Andersen did the first heart, he worked with 5 stribes.

Heart #77

Variation of the classic heart, this time with 3 stribes. Very easy to up- and downsize the pattern to the size you want for the classic ones. The patterns with motifs are a little bit tricky to alter the size due to all the little details.

History of the Weaved Heart

We have a place called Den Gamle By (The Old City) in the city of Aarhus, where old houses from different parts of the country have been gathered (yes as in moved there brick by brick and tile by tile) to show people the old life in Denmark.

They have published a little booklet about the history of the weaved heart, to help educate about this Danish tradition, that is now seen all over the world. It is almost like a fairytale - but then again the first weaved heart was created by Hans Christian Andersen.

Teaser - Inspiration

Bought an issue of ISABELLAS yesterday to kill time during a long train ride, which has a lot of Christmas inspiration inside. The last pages included a teaser: the next issue has an article about weaved hearts. Need to get that and see if I can get additional inspiration :o)

There is something about the hearts that is an interpretation of the classic heart, yet only need straigt cutted lines......
