A Speciality Stitch Finish

I'm happy with the way it turned out but am less than thrilled with the coverage in the Kloster Blocks using #8 Pearl Cotton. 
Oh well, I didn't want to pull all that back out at the time. 
I'm sure that I'll stitch this design again at some time.

 Designer: Abi Gurden
Finished: April 2012
Stitched on 28ct. white Lugana using DMC #5 and #8 Pearl Cotton
in #321 and floss in #115 varigated red and #94 varigated green with
petite gold Mill Hill beads.
I changed things up a bit by adding a few more beads, filling in the small
hearts with satin stitch and adding a scalloped edge to the kloster
block edge. I also added doves eyes in the shape of a heart to the center.

 Haven't had much stitching mojo lately so not much to post about, but I hope to remedy that soon.

Thanks for stopping by and having a look around and thank you so much for all the comments that you leave behind after your visits. They always warm my heart.

Take Care Everyone & Happy Stitchin'
Hugs, Sandy
