Time to show and tell again :)
This pattern is offered as a freebie on their site....along with lots more :) You can find them here
This month I worked on a few smalls...but can't show the others as...again....exchange pieces.....
But I did make this little pretty by The Drawn Thread.
|"Heart Throb" by The Drawn Thread|
Stitched on 32 ct "Autumn Blush" Belfast Linen
With DMC threads
I enjoyed stitching this tremendously as it involved a few stitches that I've never done before....
The dark rose heart in the centre, is called a cushion stitch heart....and the dark purple one below the light pink satin stitch.....that's made with queen stitches....which I'd never stitched before
That's a slightly better view of the cushion heart. That light pink middle heart is a sprats head heart....the pic doesn't really do it justice...I *really* love the look of that one! And the bottem was stitched using diagonal short satin stitches. The only heart that I'm not really happy with is the Rhodes Heart that you see on the left in the light purple....it's just too lopsided for my liking.....
Then there was the double faggoting stitch which you won't be able to see as it's around the border and is a light cream that blends with the fabric.
All in all a very satisfying and educational small this month :)
Hope that all's well in the corner of the world you find yourself today :)
