Finished My Heart Tonight

I had some time to sit down and work on my heart today. While the cross-stitching is completed I am not sure how I am going to finish my project...frame it, make it into a pillow or something else. Any thoughts?

This was a freebie design that I found on the web thanks to fellow stitchers at http://www.123stitch.com/ That is the absolute best cross-stitch site on the internet. If you order from them they fill the order so quick. And the site has a wonderful message board.

I stitched this on 28 count (over two) Twilight Blue Jobelan. I began stitching this on April 8, 2009 and finished April 28, 2009. It is one of those pieces that looks like it took a lot of time but it was a quick stitch.

I was so eager to post my finish that I didn't iron it first so overlook the wrinkles and creases!


  1. Looks great Lori! If I take pics of my xs before it's washed and ironed it looks like a dogs dinner ;-)

  2. That is so pretty...it would make a lovely
    picture or a darling pillow or even the
    centerpiece of a table runner...(but not one
    that could come in contact with any spills.)
    Have you been stitching since 1985 when you
    were married? One of my friends made me a
    beautiful gift back in 1981 for my marriage.
    Even though the marriage did not work out, I
    saved her gift...she put so much love and
    hard work in to it...Great job as always!

  3. I'm from the 123 board. Wow! you're heart is BEAUTIFUL. Thanks for sharing.


  4. Lovely finish - I think your color choices are great!
