Two Little Finished Hearts

Well, I finally got two of my little heart designs finished up. I was still doing the "Stitch & Rip" twist, but didn't let the "Stitcher's Rage" get in the way of finishing these two pieces.

This first one was one of the "Stitch & Rip" pieces. Wound up ripping out the whole right side of this one after trying to "un-stitch" just the ecru vine's. Too many pulled threads.
Design: Folk Art Heart
Designer: Me
Finished: 05 March 2010
Stitched on 32ct. cream linen using DMC threads, cream Mill Hill Petite beads and a small heart button. Finished it off as a Pin Pillow tied with a cream bow.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This one I made for my DH & myself, kind of like an Anniversary piece of sorts, although that's not until August. I don't think using the DMC metallic was such a great idea as cording, it was very much a pain in the tushie and didn't behave well.

Stitched on 32ct cream linen using DMC threads and Mill Hill beads.
Finished off as a hanging heart.


I'm working on two other small pieces ( no their not heart shapes), but I have no idea what I'm going to do with them at the moment.
Thanks for stopping by and having a peek at all of my stitching ups & downs. I really do appreciate all of you taking the time to do so and the wonderful comments you leave behind really help to keep me stitching & designing.

Take Care & Happy Stitching Everyone,
Sandy

  3. Beautiful designs--I really love the blue one. I detest DMC metallics, it's like stitching with barbed wire.
