U and Y

Day #151
Hearts #120-121

I am so proud of myself for getting back to daily posting on this blog!  Besides a lot of other sewing that I have to do (keeping my local booth stocked, Etsy orders, and swap packages), I've had to travel twice in the last 6 weeks, which is very unusual for me.  I am ready to get caught up on these hearts so I finish the year on schedule!

Today's alphabet hearts are perhaps the weirdest of the bunch; they aren't particularly pretty, but they serve the purpose of representing their particular letters.  When they are mixed in with the other letters, though, I think they will be a nice counterpoint to the pretty hearts!  Here they are:

"U" is for underwear!
I really struggled with this letter, and ended up choosing (long) underwear (in the upper right corner).  I wish I had a tiny umbrella print, but alas, I did not!

"Y" is for yolk!
This one is a bit of a stretch; I don't know what the print on this fabric is suposed to be, but to me it looks like slices of hardboiled eggs.  With the "Y" added to it, this heart looks strangely like a face!  One of my readers, Kay, left a comment in a previous post suggesting I use a sunshiny-yellow fabric for the "Y"--I love that idea, but I had already cut out this fabric by the time I read her comment!

Such cute hearts - only four more to go, right?

You are moving right along on the hearts. What a fun challenge you created for yourself!

Ohhhh, underwear! I was trying to guess what that was! Perfect. The "yolk" heart has to be one of my favorites.
