Making all the bandaged hearts leaves heart shaped spaces in the felt
the ghost hearts
These spaces gave me a way to make all the ghost hearts to honour the people who have died but live on in our hearts. I am stitching around the edge of the heart space left by each ghost heart’s wife or partner or whatever then cut it free & keep stitching and binding until the ghost heart can hold it’s own space and then tie it in place…Ghost Heart 1Ghost Heart 2

    I am loving your heart project. Will you be framing the ghost heart piece. It is wonderful just the way it is.

      Hi Mo’a it’s all in a state of whatever happens next, there will be at least 144 bandaged hearts and therefore twice that in ghost hearts by the end of this magic diaries journey in the New Year. I just bought a metre of the finest natural silk organza guaze to see of it’s the right material to weave in with the strands of hearts… it’s like holding a piece of moonlight!!!
