Jan Brattain- Laughing Dog Arts

I won this on Jan's Laughing Dog Arts blog. I wish I could get the right pictures and the perfect words to let you in on how delighted I am.

I adore this broken hearts wall hanging and the work is impeccable.

The stitching is so nice and even.

It is large. It will make a wonderful addition to my favorite things.

There are beads and buttons and yarns woven in to different areas of the hanging.

There are many broken hearts, but mine is whole and bursting with joy!!

It has loops to hang it by.

It is also signed on the back in stitches.
This was one of her giveaways.
This is a talented, interesting, and mulitfaceted woman and I am so lucky to call her friend, and I thought that before I got this!! 
Thank you, Jan.
I ADORE it!!!
