A New Start

Missy graciously answered my request and sent me her pattern for "Hearts Left Behind" to borrow. I received it on Friday and started it on Monday. Thank you again Missy!


It is stitched with DMC and I am using a piece of 32ct. Belfast that was coffee/tea dyed. Here is how far I am tonight.


I am going to change the design a little and put my dad and my mom on the one sampler.

Thanks for visiting my blog and for all the wonderful comments.

Happy Stitching!

A great start, Jill. And when I see how fast you started I think you won't need a lot of time to finish this sampler, lol.
