HappyChristmas in July: Make a Danish Woven Heart Out of Real Birch Bark

Danish hearts  - Make them with real birch bark!

A teeny tiny 1 1/4" Danish woven heart basket made using real birch bark! Find a birch bark tree with the bark peeling off, strip it and make hearts for the Winter Holidays.

I was inspired to try my hand at this by Alan Dart during an e-mail exchange, and when I found bark peeling off a birch last February, I removed it immediately.

Embroidered Primstav

I have had so many inquires about my embroidered Norwegian Primstav calendar and I want to say to everyone who is following the progress made on this project, thank you so much for you patience and your interest. And for keeping this project uppermost in my mind. It is the first project I have touched in months and now I can't keep my hands and mind off of it! So again, thank you!
