Pink Heart and Colorado Beauty

This stitchery heart is from Rosalie Quinlan's book A Stitch in Time. I like the look of the variegated pink thread on the white Kona cotton. Last time I tried to do chain stitch I gave up in disgust! This time I perservered and can definitely see an improvement.



 The fabric on the back is from the Caramel Town range by Lecien.




While on holidays I've been trying to catch up with a few projects (and NOT start any more new ones!!) This block is called Colorado Beauty. Now I'm only one block behind in our Friends in Stitching BOM.







Will share some more bits and pieces soon.

  15. Love the chain stitch Christine - a great change from backstitch and adds a bit more dimension to the stitchery.
