New Stitches

Well, since I have not been exposed to too many different stitches I thought I would give this pattern a try. I found it on Even though the designer used colors related to Valentine's, I thought I would do it in my favorite color: blue. I love all things blue (in case you haven't figured that out yet by the way my blog is set up)!!! Since I have sooooo much extra floss from previous designs, I thought I would use some of that up. So, without further ado, I give you my version of Satin Heart Hardanger:

22-ct. Charles Craft Off-White Hardanger
Satin Stitch in DMC #813
Kloster Block Stitch in DMC #162
Design by: Connie G. Barwick

My intention is to turn this one into an ornament. I also plan to stitch it again and again in other color schemes for St. Patty's Day, Easter, Halloween/Thanksgiving, and Christmas.

Well done! It can be intimidating, but it's always fun to try something new, isn't it?!

The heart is really cute! Stitching more in holiday color schemes is a great idea. Thanks for visiting my blog today. I really appreciate your comments.
