New Start

This is my new project that I started when I finished the heart. I wasn't going to bother to post a picture of it because I didn't think I'd have made enough progress to look like anything. It's just a little piece - it's only a little over 2 inches across and maybe 6 inches tall.

When all is said and done it's going to have quite a few specialty stitches in it - so far there are just some long stitches in the upper left hand corner in the middle of the flowers. And the border is stitched with some overdyed floss from Threadworx in a really pretty turquoise blue.

This is a Sweetheart Tree pattern all revolving around the month of March - my aunt (who is also my Godmother) was born in March and this is her birthday gift for next year.

Thanks for checking it out!

WOW...that is pretty. I think I'll have to look into those and put some on my wish list. It is much prettier stitched than what the picture on the chart shows.

I love the pattern already. Those flowers look beautiful and the color of the blue thread is to die for. Thank you for telling what it was or I would have e-mailed you to find out,lol. Banishing the frogs until finished.
