New project - Letters Heart


I saw this design on a few blogs last year and really liked it. I eventually found the pattern and downloaded it. Then at Christmas I received a DMC linen floss kit and lo and behold the color pattern was in there.
I should have the project completely finished by the end of this week-end.
DMC 3712 two strands over 1 on 14 count Aida. It's approx 5"x51/2" though the finished piece will be larger.

Addendum - Some have asked so here's the only link I know about to download the pattern http://au.lifestyle.yahoo.com/better-homes-gardens/article/-/5827923/christmas-cross-stitch/ (The Linen DMC kit was bought at Michaels.)

  12. Oh your Alphabet heart is just lovely! Perfect for Valentine's day!! Thanks for showing us where to find the pattern. I noticed you were working on Cirque Des Carreaux. I have this pattern kitted up and calling to me from my stash. I fell in love with that pattern, it might have to be next on my start list...if only I could finish the Camelot Sampler *sigh* *Hugs*

  13. DJ is working on the Camelot Sampler. I am totally impressed.

    The Heart Sampler has taken on a life of it's own and has now morphed into a wall hanging !!!
