A heart for all bargello fans. No one knows why the heart is associated with love. A human heart weighs between 7 and 15 ounces. Our heart beats around 100,000 times a day. Laughing is good for your heart. A “broken heart” can feel like a heart attack. Bargello is a type of needlepoint embroidery consisting of upright flat stitches laid in a mathematical pattern to create motifs. The name originates from a series of chairs found in the Bargello palace in Florence, which have a "flame stitch" pattern. Traditionally, Bargello was stitched in wool on canvas. Embroidery done this way is remarkably durable. It is well suited for use on pillows, upholstery and even carpets, but not for clothing. In most traditional pieces, all stitches are vertical with stitches going over two or more threads.
