Heart drawing

Hello people.  I didn't think I would get this many entries!  In addition, 17 email entries, one of which was chosen.  Amy Komack.  I will contact you for your address as soon as I'm finished boring everyone with this post.
 
Next project.  One of two and I hope to decide this evening.  My husband is in the other room screaming at the Steelers, a little distracting, but I think I can handle it.
 
As the slump continues, I thought one color of thread would be easier on me.  I am continually making changes and that is not the thing I need to be doing right now. 
So this design popped into my head.  Harry Tyler's Lion.  I have the GAST threads, pulled a 32 count natural linen, and this piece fell out of the pile.  Hmm.  That Gunmetal that I worked with to tone down that unusual blue.  Reverse the design and use 644 on the dark ground.
 
The other option (leaning to) is R&R Reproductions 1739.  It is really primitive and that means LOTS of room for errors.  I would change the thread colors for a little more definition, and not be too concerned about messing up.  Either one, a good choice.
 
 
That's it folks! 
 Thanks for visiting.

I'm with Mark, screaming at the Steelers too! No stitching tonight....no concentration with that game on. Loved the heart! Missed your drawing.... :(

Both are good but I really like the reverse lion. I just made mine in to a zipper pouch not to long ago and I really love it. Have fun choosing.

I am upstairs not caring about the game one way or the other. Here in RI patriot nation or whatever, football so little action. How can a scheduled one hour game started at 6:45 still be on ( now 9:24). I like the reverse color you chose for Harry Tyler's lion look more like a coverlet.

I like them both.....go with the Lion, Harry Tyler's lion.

Both of the designs would be fun to stitch! Since the Seahawks are out, it was quiet at my house!

Don't think you could go wrong with either choice, though I really like the lion since he's a bit unusual. Looking forward to seeing which one you pick. There was no Steelers yelling going on here - we were just groaning...
