Truely Thine heart



It was my SIL, Dawns birthday the other week, but as I knew she was coming over here to Cumbria this weekend I thought I would wait to give her her gift. I've stitched Blackbird Designs - Truely thine heart. Dawn loves hearts and strong colours she is not a pastel kinda girl so I've stitched this on some 32ct hand-dyed fabric I had using the recommended WDW/GAST and finished it very simply as a heart.
