Hello people! How's everyone? Hopefully well and safe.
While browsing Pinterest, I saw a few heart finishes for Christmas and thought .... as Arsenio does .... hmmmmm. Not a lot of stitching involved and easy to choose the heart size with linen counts, small for ornaments and large ones for knob hangers. For me, that's a good thing since my stitching desire does not seem to be returning. I started this blog for encouragement to return to the needle, and if I close it, I will stop stitching. At this point, it's keeping me going, not ready to throw in the towel yet!
You've probably already seen this one online but in case not, you can follow this link and scroll down
register with Better Homes and Gardens, and have access to the chart and other projects.
These others may also have been seen before, but as always, new to me! I don't care for printed linen but these dots make an adorable heart, so I'll be ordering some along with the checked. Just throw it on the pile of counts and colors that are sitting, waiting, hoping to be made into something glorious (or grungy). You can adapt or use any design for a heart as shown in these great pieces. So if you're tired of the Prairie Schooler tree, how about a heart tree?
So many more on Pinterest but I should finish the Santa first. Not an easy stitch since I am winging it. I played with the photos but never created a chart to follow so ..... he will be a combination of all three choices in the end. Just working on the outline in half cross so I can easily remove or change as needed.
Have a heart!
