Hey. What's happening? All good I hope.
Was going through old magazines for recycling and came across the one ornament I saved the mag for. Just Cross Stitch December 1989 had this darling sampler on the cover.
I changed to my own dyed linen, dark thread, gold for the crown, filled the hearts with red, and added the cupid arrow where initials should be. I still like this design as they show it and plan to stitch it on a higher count linen with ivory thread. This is 28 (?) count and measures around 4"x3".
It will almost certainly (almost being the key word) have the check for its backing. I need to add a stitch to each side of the arrow's heart and one more feather row. Also changed Mi to My, left off extra stitches on the g. Do you think this Christmas design turned into a Valentine? Hope so because IF the finishing doesn't result in a flame being thrown out the window, this will be my next giveaway. But when? That depends on whether I order a mini pom pom to match (sight unseen) and learn to attach it, or reduce the possibility of flames and just sew into an ornament. Am I feeling lucky?
