~ Finished! ~

I'm so happy! French Country ~ Love is finished and... I'm really pleased with it, how could I not be since it's a heart and I adore them. For this project we used Weeks Dye Works thread and I really liked stitching with it. I especially like the variation in color...and I love the subtle color changes you can see in the vine.

Tomorrow our little stitching group is taking a road trip to the Elegant Stitch. This is a wonderful cross stitch store, about a hours drive from here. The "Stitch" is filled with so many just feel like a kid in a candy store. I have a tiny wish list and I'm hoping to stick to it. What are your weekend plans?

I'll be by for a chat soon....hugs, Linda

I hadn't realized until now that the heart is made up of letters that spell love. It is very pretty. Are you making a wall hanging?

The two Kitties in my post that aren't black belong to my son's family out in Texas. Mine is Smokey, the black one. His aren't as friendly. I wonder if it is just their nature or because there are two of them.

How pretty! I didn't notice the cross stitched heart spelled out love either until I looked a second time.

That is a beautiful finish and so fitting for you. I hope you have a fun day out and oh well if you don't stick to your list. Bet it is hard to do in a shop like that.

It's beautiful how it turned out!

Hope you had lots of fun on your road trip today. I love doing things like that and a cross stitch store is always a fun place to visit. Be sure and show us what you bought...since I have this feeling you'll find something you have to have!

Hugs, Andi
