i carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart)

This 6x6 quilty pocket is for Mary Z it has machine quilted felt, fibers, coffee stained muslin and vintage lace, organza and tulle.
The wings and the package are both stuffed with batting.

reverse side with vinyl over lay to trap fibers and beads, and vinyl heart pull out.
i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

It's beautiful, Ruth. And that is one of my favorite poems too. I use the first line a lot in my paper and fabric pieces.
