Stunning Shaker heart print.

Good morning to you all

If you are a regular reader or you have joined my blog, you will know that last October I was lucky enough to go to America again.  We flew into Boston Logan airport and hired a car which enabled us to travel around New England and New Hampshire and New York.

One of the places that we love to go to is the Shaker village in Canterbury in New Hampshire.  This place is amazing and there is a sense of calm and contentment about it.  I have spoken before about it so I will not repeat myself, suffice to say whilst in their wonderful shop I bought a print.  It has been framed and is in my sewing room for me to gaze upon.  I am so pleased with it but can not help wondering where the original is and if you are able at to see it.  Over here a lot of our historical pieces are either in museums or in record offices so that we maybe able to experience the history for ourselves........

Still I have my beautiful print and it sits behind non reflective glass and hopefully honors the artist in some way.

I am designing a piece of my work which is based on this and hope that it will be as admired as this print is in years to come.

Happy Stitching!

Not all of us can do great things, but we can do small things with great love!
