Hearts

As expected, it didn't take long to finish the last heart, Jouy Style heart.  I now have all ten hearts stitched and will be on the search for fabric to tie them together to make a wall hanging.  Something else to add to the finishing list.

 I've also done another heart.  This is the first of 12 hearts being released over the year over at Raspberry Rabbits .  I did consider buying the Valdani threads used, but being a good girl, I decided to go with what I had in my stash.
 It is supposed to be on point, but as you can see, Hamlet just had to get in the picture.  As soon as the camera comes out, he's there.
That's him casting a shadow and showing the tip of his tail.  As quick as I throw him off, he's back, so I gave up and let him have his moment of glory.

Your hearts look lovely. My cats are exactly the same they try and get in every picture I take at home, lol

Love the heart you finished.

Can't wait to see the hanging with all those x-stitched hearts. That should be a beauty.

The heart stitchery sounds like a nice project. Hamlet just wants to show is love!

Well done to finish those cross stitch hearts! I saw the little stitched heart but decided not to do them. I look forward to seeing yours though! :0)

Your hearts are lovely, I'm looking forward to seeing this little wallhanging finished. I also like your red heart. I just love the Raspberry Rabbit...I wish I liked to embroider more. I try but I have to make myself do it sometimes....I'll look at yours, how's that? It's ok for Hamlet to get in the pictures, we all love cats!

Both of the hearts are beautiful. I rather like Hamlet's tail, also.
