Open Heart Week 4

Here is last week's progress on Open Heart. I'm going to start on the whitework border back at the top when I pick it up again so in another few weeks or so I'll be at the half way mark.

Tonight I should be finished with Karen's Quaker RR so will have a pic to share tomorrow. Its been my first experience with 40ct linen, rather interesting :)

I've been meaning to post about a little bit of stash that I bought last week. My friend Wendy and I were out and about last Wednesday for work so stopped by our not so close LNS as we both had vouchers to spend. I picked up a few more Sweetheart Tree teenie kits, Hearts n Flowers and Pirouette in Purple and also came away with Bliss, Just Nan's 15th anniversary sampler. I've liked this for quite some time so decided to splash out. In the freebies that Sherelyn always gives out when you purchase something was Just Nan's Royal Blossoms, the 2007 edition. I've decided to kit this up to start very soon.

I love the progress that you have made on open heart,the motifs are so precious. I checked out those upcoming projects too, they are all gorgeous. I especially like the Sweetheart Tree designs. I have done many of theirs (you might have seen on my blog) and have potpourri heart in my stash to stitch one of these days. They hail from here in Arizona. They were also featured in the May 2007 Cross Stitch and Needlework magazine.
