Some Patriotic Heart Finishes

I'm still in a HEART mood so here are two more pieces of the Heart Shapey variety.
I found this pattern as a freebie somewhere, sorry but I can't remember where.

Design: "4th of July Quaker Style"
Stitched on 28ct linen 1 over 1 using DMC Color Variations threads.
Cording and tassel made from DMC solid color threads.
I about went bonkers doing this 1 over 1, but I made it through with most of my sanity in tact.

Design: "4th of July Quaker Style"
Stitched on 28ct linen using DMC Variegated threads and white. I added the words myself they were not part of the pattern.
Now I have to figure out how to finish this piece, maybe a no-sew cube since I've never made one before and I feel the need to expand my finishing knowledge.


Thank you all for stopping by and having a peek into my stitching life, all of the comments you leave behind are greatly appreciated and help keep me stitching along.

Wishing you all a wonderful day filled with love and stitches .... Sandy
