All Our Hearts” is a celebration piece recalling and reflecting the fact that we are all the same, that we all have a heart and every one of our hearts not only beats the same but makes us like one another. “The fullness expression of life is to love and to help us to understand one another and raise each other up in a positive state of well-being and wholeness.” Cindy Lass.
Cindy Lass’ All Our Hearts Beat As One project brought together people from all walks of life, from fashion designers to sporting stars, actors, TV personalities and musicians; including Emma Thompson, Cate Blanchett, Bruno Tonioli, Simon Cowell, Iron Maiden’s Dave Murray, Meg Matthews, Mary McCartney, Sinitta and many more. Her projects have helped many charitable causes including Battersea Dogs Home, Elton John’s AIDS Foundation and int his case, The Heart Cell Foundation.
“This painting is very close to my heart. I painted it to launch ‘All Our Hearts Beat As One’ throughout schools of mixed culture, to celebrate each other’s differences. The heartbeat is a very important sound and vibration. I hope people will connect through my colourful needlepoint and find an inner peace whilst stitching, feeling the love for oneself and others.” Love Cindy xxx
All Our Hearts Beat As One is worked in tent stitch (ordinary tapestry stitch) and is counted onto 12-count plain canvas, using the coloured chart and Appleton’s wools provided.
