Quick stitch & finish




This is by The Needles content and its called Sampler heart - I've stitched it 2/1 on 28ct, I decided to stitch it 2/1 so that it was a more heavier look, though I found that my stitches didn't sit at all neat, but its for me, if I was sending it away I think I would have gone back to 1/1 and unpicked it all.

I've finished my stitching on my seasonal exchange for autumn and have the finishing to do, but I'm waiting to start that as I'll do that and my LHN exchange piece at the same time as I'm just starting the LHN piece tonight.

Hope everyone is having a good week.

That's lovely Su - could you tell me if you know of a link to finishing instructions for a heart shaped ornament? I've seen one that I'd like to stitch but haven't a clue..lol

Your stitching didn't sit that neatly? I odn't believe you!! It looks wonderful!!

Su, it's just beautiful. I like the 2/1 it makes it really bold and it is a bold design. Anything finished as a heart always looks extra special :>) Your hands are never idle! How you do it and still tackle all the jobs you have on at the moment, I shall never know :>)
Hugs, Angela
