I regularly give out hearts like these to people around me as gifts and tokens of appreciation. I have only made two with wings but I love them the most. The wings are finished first and the stitching makes them curl up a bit. I have chosen an off-white stitch to give them a bit more interest. The next wing set one I will embroider with feathers.
This is the third heart I have sent to someone I care about very much. When I sent it I was also quite frustrated with him for a few reasons and I couldn't figure out what to write on the card. The sentiment on the heart is true, anything else 'positive' would have seemed fake at that moment. Two days later I sort of broke up with him... Let's just say 'we are on a break'! We'll see the reception it gets next week.
