Ripping My Heart Out....

I can't tell you how many times, but the result is worth it!

Finally, the back is done. Not following a pattern for this one. I wanted to use the heart pattern and basically put some good cable pattern panels around the heart's panel.

I love hearts. Hearts of any kind. Some are drawn to Angels and figures of them, I am drawn to hearts (and roses)...
...I also am very interested the Queen of Hearts - yes, the playing card (playing cards in general, for they relate greatly to so much more than just games). The Queen of Hearts card is based on Queen Elizabeth of York; born on the 11th of February and died at the young age of 37, on the 11th of February (go figure, my birthday!). There is a great deal about her and her Tudor family I find fascinating. Aaah, to be loved so much as Queen Elizabeth was, by King Henry VII (a marriage starting off as a political arranged).
...Also the suit of hearts represents Spring. My favorite time of year because my gardens begin to come alive. I eagerly await each plant and their time! It is also when the cold is gone and all warms up again.
... Each suit represents the stages of life. Hearts correspond with childhood - Spring season, the element Fire, the Youth and Love. Hearts represent early association with family and friends, first love. As a Fire, Hearts are able to sacrifice for country, family, friend, cause. Hearts rule art, music, poetry, any pursuit of beauty in any form. (The Seven Reflections)
OH, Hearts. Sadly, I have been told I am the Ace of Spades....

Here are some more interesting --}factoids--{ about cards and their various meanings! Should check it out.
