"Cross Stitch, "Where my heart blooms."

Hello,

Today marks an important date as far as I am concerned. I put the last stitch into the cross stitch I have been working on. Introducing "Where My Heart Blooms" This is a Blackbird design.

"Where My Heart Blooms."

I won this chart from David at a Cottage on the Hill. It is stitched on 27 count Linda Linen in Cream with a mixture of DMC and  The Gentle Art threads. The only thing I did differently is I have two different coloured trees beside the house. I mixed up the colours because the numbers were so close. Decided not to take out one of the trees, besides it still looks great. I would say the hardest part was stitching the saying Home is where heart blooms. As this was stitched with one strand of floss over one thread, lots of concentrating while doing this. I will be visiting the framer later on this week.

Happy days.
Bev C
