Barely sneaking in at the end of the link up, I have some trimmed up hearts for my FFO’s this month. Thank you Rachel for hosting us!
First is Token of Love from Samplers Not Forgotten:
Instead of ruching the ribbon and then sewing it on, this time I ruched as I went. Boy that was a lot faster and I think it came out just as nice, even the the effect is a bit different! There was barely enough ribbon in the kit though, I trimmed maybe 1/8″-1/4″ off each end of the bow “legs” because they were fraying and then applied some glue to keep them from fraying more. It was a nail-biter!
Then 2 hearts from Atalie: Coeur Bleu and Louise.
My daughter asked for Louise for her birthday next week because she said it is “my favorite heart you have ever made!” And so I guess I will be stitching it again for me because I think it is also MY favorite!
Finally, the 2 Victoria Sampler Hearts from the Beyond Cross Stitch series.
And yes if you were paying attention on the Queen of Hearts post, there is one more heart that needs trim, but I didn’t have quite the right color anything for it and I couldn’t decide on a compromise. Well, I will audition some options and maybe show it to you next month. Which is not so far away!
