Hi, this is the heart I stitched for Valentines 2010. This is a freebie from Aury. It stitched it with HDF regular - Zumaque, BeFrogged, and a D-Bag pink on Vikki's 35 ct. ecru linen. I love the design - but I think the pink is too pale; and my tension is too tight for this soft, loosely woven linen. Maybe I'm too critical of my own work. My long term plan is to collect a bunch of hearts to decorate my Norfolk Island pine for Valentine's day.
We had more snow yesterday - they cancelled the Winter Storm warning in favor of a Blizzard Warning. In Baltimore, only emergency vehicles were allowed on the streets; and in Montgomery County, the road crews had to stop clearing the snow because it was too dangerous. We are out of work for the fourth day. Now, I love to stay home and just putter (DH doesn't understand this); but I have been home since last Friday, and I am ready to get out and go somewhere! The concept of eating at a restaurant is immensely appealing.
Well, it's time to feed the pellet stove, pour a cup of coffee, and settle into my stitching chair!
Happy stitching, Margaret
