Catherine's Heart: Description

Originally I made a series of Royal Jeweled Hearts instead of a heart adapted directly from my Catherine Portrait. Now, as I finished a Heart for Queen Victoria, I decided I should also create one for Catherine.

The heart is about 4 1/2"  wide x 4 1/4" tall on soft ivory (color) congress cloth 8" x 8". As I had earlier made a Purple Catherine Heart, I made this Heart in my original Catherine colors. If you made Purple Catherine and would like to use the purple colors, my guess is that you have a sufficient amount of thread for the conversion.

The threads include 8 colors of Soie d'Alger, 1 spool of Kreinik braid, 1 spool of Bijoux and four colors of floss. The heart is densely stitched in layers of the patterns I adapted from my portrait of Catherine.

There are a large number of pearls, together with glass 'diamonds, green crystals and rust and green seed beads.

The instruction are 16 pages long plus a title page and a color copy of my finished heart.

Please note: the instructions do not include finishing. I'm terrible at it and I send my hearts to a professional finisher.

Heart of Eleanor Description

Heart of Eleanor reflects the beads, pearls and overall style of my portrait of Eleanor of Aquitaine. It is like a small sampling of Eleanor herself and a good introduction for people who have not yet stitched Eleanor.

The heart is approximately 4.5" wide x 4.25" tall and is stitched on a piece of soft ivory (color) congress cloth 8" x 8".

The threads are mostly Soie d'Alger, with one Planet Earth thread, one floss and a Kreinik braid. The stitches reflect the ones I used on Eleanor: mostly traditional needlepoint patterns and a bit of overstitching.

I confess, I love this heart because of the colors. I love these particular blues and purples with touches of gold.

The instruction booklet is 17 pages long, plus a title page and a color copy of my finished heart.

The instructions booklet does not include instructions for assembling the heart (I leave that job to a professional finisher).

Victoria's Heart: Description

I very much enjoyed making Victoria's Heart by using my Honiton-lace-like patterns from the bodice and veil of my Portrait of Queen Victoria as a bride.

Notice I used the beautiful montees to make her diamond necklace and a blue sapphire glass bead and surrounding crystals to make the brooch that was Albert's gift to her. I also added her bouquet of orange blossoms in ribbon and the Garter Star.

As an interesting aside, if you look back at wedding photos of Prince Harry and Meghan, and you have eagle eyes, you will see that Prince William is wearing the Garter Star.

Victoria's Heart uses 9 colors of Soie d'Alger, River Silks ribbon, a partial spool of Kreinik braid and 2 colors of floss. The beads include beautiful quality montees (vintage glass set in metal), silver seed beads, an oval glass 'sapphire' and silver crystals.



The instructions are 17 pages long plus a title page and a color copy of my finished Heart.

Please note: the instructions do not include finishing. I'm terrible at it and I send my hearts to a professional finisher.
