Boo! Happy Halloween!This lovely heart (first photo) is another kit from The Victoria Sampler. It was given to me by a NANI friend. I spent a good deal of time locating the charm & beads for this one. As it was an 'in the car' project - I took out the charm/bead pkg & put it 'someplace' where it would not be 'lost'. Yeah -- what a fossil. Took me awhile to unearth the pkg!!! Later this afternoon, I plan to stitch the rest of it.
This is a kit I stitched up a few years back & finished into a heart ornament. It is Assisi Embroidery. I plan to finish the Satin Stitch heart (first photo) in the same way. As I recall, it was a doorprize at an EGA chapter event. These are nice kits as there are different fibers included & ENOUGH fibers included ... you know what I mean? Dreadful to run out of ingredients when you purchase a kit.
I started this kit at the Dentist's office waiting room ... & thought I might finish it up this week. I love the title of these hearts "Beyond Cross Stitch" as they sprinkle in specialty stitches. I'm really tired of the 'x' right now. I in the mood for other kinds of stitching.
Before you ask ... the threadwinders are from House of Stitches . They come in boxes of six & I couldn't resist purchasing the butterfly design [several designs available]. I have a thing for threadwinders. And, as always, click on the photo to enlarge [for those readers not familiar with blogging]
