First project of 2011 - Valentine Hearts

I'm participating in a Valentines Day cross-stitch swap and I decided to stitch it up as my travel project over Christmas. This is all you get to see till it shows up at the other end, then I'll do the full reveal :)

I took a single heart design from and turned it into a flower (of sorts). It's stitched on 14 ct. Aida and I used DMC 3832 & 3833 two strands. Swing on over to Dany's site. She has some lovely designs.
We are about to make some rearrangements here at the "homestead". Our oldest daughter is moving back in for a while. She and DD #2 have been here for the past two weeks and now that the latter has headed home we will be doing some room re-arranging and de-junking. Hopefully most of that can be accomplished over the next week or two.
My sewing machine has seen some usage. Daughter #2 sewed up a tie skirt and a dress (I forgot to take photos and she does not like to pose). A friend borrowed it to make Christmas stockings and I am about done making a semi-formal dress for DD #3.


  1. Very pretty design. I love your header picture too.

  2. I'm a new follower to your blog - this is really really pretty!
