I am totally in love with Christina Perri at the moment, and after hearing her song Jar of Hearts, I just had to stitch up a version.  I starting drawing the design up in May, and it is now finally finished!



For the hearts I have used varying mediums: buttons, sequins, satin stitch, felt applique, back stitch, and crayon tinting.  The jar outline has been done in backstitch.



The text is stitched in back stitch and french knots.  This took forever to do.  I highlighted some of the words in red and blue.  The little hearts at the side are done in back and satin stitch.



I wrapped the hoop in some pretty see through ribbon.  I can't remember what size the hoop actually is, but it was the biggest one I could find in my craft shop!

So happy it's finally finished, now to hang it on my hoopla wall Cheesy
