Hearts Grow on Trees

Here are pictures of a few pretty turqouise hearts I am sending to Art Grows on Trees in the UK. I started out strong, knitting the butterfly ring, with great plans to make a few more butterflies, birds, and more….. something about plans in the summer… …. …. There is only one knitted butterfly. I hope he is not lonely. ;)

Luckily, early this spring, I felted a bunch of old wool sweaters that I found at thrift shops. One is a perfect shade of turquoise, and has been cut, sewn, and button charmed into some dangly little hearts. I may add a few more surprises to the package, before I mail it out…

These remind me of the heart shaped sugar cookies my mom makes. Of course, the cookies aren’t turquoise, well.. sometimes the icing is pretty colourful, depending on how many little fingers are involved with the food colouring!

Art Grows on Trees

Another fun project to get involved with! How can I resist? The title alone is enough to get me started. A blogger I have been following, ‘Knitayear‘ has kindly passed on this link: Art Grows on Trees


Do you want to grow some art with us?
Any local creative soul is very welcome to help us grow the art on the trees.

We will be hanging the art on
Saturday 3 September 2011, 10am
and
Saturday 10 September 2011, 10am
On both days, we will finish the hanging action with a morning coffee in a nearby cafe.

To help the healthy growth of the project, there will be a fun Tree Art Creation Day on Saturday 13 August 2011, at Flat 3, 1 Pretoria Avenue, London E17 7DS, starting at 11am – bring along any materials that might come in handy!

Looking forward to seeing you!
Dean, Wendy, Alban, Julie, Valeria, Katja etc
