Late last month I was busy finishing up the Moonlight Love embroidery that I thought was going to be part of our niece's wedding quilt. As it turned out, the embroidery was too dark to include in the quilt so I get to hang onto it and enjoy it in our home. :- )
Even in a rush it was fun to do. Then I was busy building the quilt top so not a lot of stitching took place. In the last few days I've started to almost replicate one of the needlepoint coin purses I've made in the past.
I bought a blank canvas purse one time when I also purchased a kit. At the time I didn't have a clue what I would do with it. Such a quantity of leftover floss had accumulated from all the kits that I knew I wanted a design that would at least make a dent - never mind all the other floss I have in my stash! These hearts are simple and straightforward. They and the border can be counted out the same way counted cross stitch designs are done. It's a bit more demanding mentally than just stitching by color but once I get the hearts in place I'll have the background to fill in mindlessly. ;- )
There's quite a gang of us in this stitch along now, all over the world. Many are doing cross stitch projects (some quite ambitious) but there's a variety of needlework being done.
