18th Square

Goooood Morning!

Here is my 18th and center square in the stitch-a-long!

In my life, the heart is at the center of all things. If something doesn't feel right on my heart, I'll never be able to rest with it. Likewise if something does feel good on my heart, I know it's the right decision. I live by the Golden Rule, it's so easy and so perfect and encompasses everything. Work, money, relationships, living green, the way you treat people, the way you treat your animals, the way you treat yourself, and even the things you make. I think it's important, and I know it's a busy life we all lead, but simple kindess and courtesey go a long way. Of course it's important to use your noggin, but I let my heart lead the way most times, and I think it's served me pretty well. How 'bout you guys?


Ok, now to the nitty~gritty... I'm not happy with my center square (whining voice) it's not resting on my heart very well... it's crooked and it's shaped a little funny. Hmph! I think I'm going to have to redo it... dang.

Ah well, it's Friday. Plenty of time for stitching this weekend.

T.G.I.F people!!

I think your square is wonderful! I love that border stitch, and the floss you used on the heart is so cool! I'm looking forward to having time to stitch this weekend also!
Hugs,

I'm with you...kindness and courtesy are small things, but so important!
About your centre square :) I would love to say "just let it go" and leave it, but I know that if something is bothering me, I MUST unpull it and make something that I'm happy with....it's worth it in the end.
LOve your multitoned heart, and that border stitch looks awesome! Looking forward to seeing what you create over the weekend xx
