Cross Stitch (My) Heart
In honor of today s cross stitch heart pattern, we ve been trying to come up with all the different song titles that have the word heart in them (because who doesn t love stitching while listening to some tunes). Heart of Glass by Blondie, Gypsy Heart by Elton John, Hungry Heart by Bruce Springsteen, and of course there s the band called Heart. You could seriously make a day s long playlist filled with songs about your ticker. Come to think of it, what an amazing way to spend an afternoon! And while you re grooving, why not stitch up this pattern? We ve used it to create adorable elbow patches. It adds a subtle charm to a ho hum cardigan. Let it fill you up with joy because as The Boss once said, Everybody s got a hungry heart.
