The hedgerows are full of wonderful berries and the leaves on the trees are slowly turning there lovely golden shades. I went out hunting for rose hips being sure to leave some for the birds, to make these little hearts with.

The hearts are absolutely gorgeous. I love red berries, what a great way to use them and lovely as Christmas decorations, are you going to paint them ?
I have just been making heart lavender bags.

They look beautiful ! I love decorations made out of natural bits and pieces ! They go into it in a big way here in Sweden.

Hi Joanna

The hearts look super. There are so many berries in the hedgerows - each year there seem to be more!

Thanks for stopping by. Glad you liked my stand!

Wow! I too noticed some really big rosehips when walking up the lane on Saturday! Will give this a try!

They are lovely, you are so clever! Although if I made these Andy would say I had too much time on my hands, (cos he's a chap and doesn't understand these things).

Pg I had a weekend home alone, which was nice and gave me a chance to get on with some things. K has promised to help me find more rosehips as I could only find a few and would like to make more.

For any body that would like to make there own, I used a tapestry needle to make a hole through the rose hip and then threaded onto some thinish wire.

I bent into place and help this by having a piece of wire from top to bottom. To cover the wire in the middle up a little I tied a ribbon made from a piece of fabric

These are lovely, I am totally hooked on hearts at the moment!

Gorgeous hip hearts Joanna! Are they still so beautiful red and glossy or do they dry/fade quickly?
