Thank you for the help

Located the Kathy Barrick chart, Black Heart, and once I saw it I realized I had seen it before.  Always check her wonderful designs and when I saw this..
 
 
I liked it.  But it didn't have the impact on me as it did when finished like this...
 
Now I HAVE to have it.  So I guess every aspect of needlework can make a difference in its personal appeal.  Dark or light linen, bright or muted colors, the finish.  All can be adapted to our preferences and entirely changed to be the difference between - it's a nice design ... or ... I can't live without it.  I've seen several designs that I liked, did not purchase, and then they appeared online as a finished ditty/sewing bag that made my socks roll.  Carolina Stitcher's finishing posts usually have something I would purchase after seeing her magic worked, but not before. 
 
I plan to purchase this Black Heart, use Charcoal linen, maybe a dark red, maybe even a lighter shade.  It looks like Kathy chose floss colors that will work with just about any linen.  I should probably go directly to her Etsy page, but there's always that temptation to throw another small linen piece of a new color in the package.  Do I need that?  Absolutely not.
 
My husband said I would not have been injured had I continued in the rain, just a jolt maybe and it would have shut off and thrown the breaker. Doesn't explain the plug coming out though.  But he also added, "please don't plug it in and stand in the rain just to prove I'm wrong". 
 
Home from Mercer, Greek spaghetti for dinner.
Have a good day folks. 
 
Thanks again for your help!

I see what you mean about the heart looking more appealing in that charcoal color. I do love it, and I have to say I didn't recognize it. Glad to know you would have been ok with the blower. Yikes!

I like the heart in both colors but I am a chicken and never stitch on black!

I think you are correct and the charcoal linen makes a greater impact with the right colors. Looking forward to seeing how you put yours together. What is Greek Spaghetti? Sounds interesting.

I ordered this from Kathy's Etsy page yesterday, I think I will do as shown. I have done a few of her designs, love her floss color choices. Glad to know you would have just gotten a jolt!

I love the heart, really pretty. So glad you were OK and your Dad unplugged it, he was watching over you.

Marly, I'm the one that stitched the Kathy Barrick heart. I believe it was Weeks Dye works linen,and it might have been called "onyx".
