Well, here is the finished front of my Hardanger heart. I am finishing up the back and it will be good to go! The gold braid actually twinkles a bit more than it show here. It is quite pretty up close.
I was happy to work on this today. It was a rainy and dreary day and I had a sore throat all day. So we camped out on the sofa. Liesl napped away. I stitched and had my hot cider and windmill cookies next to me. I was under my heated throw. The best part was that I finally got to see what all the hub bub was about with Downton Abbey. I watched a marathon while I stitched. (Do we watch shows one episode at a time anymore?) Okay, this show is brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. I have always loved Maggie Smith, but, oh my goodness, I think this is the best thing she has ever done. It was a perfect way to spend a rainy day.
It is supposed to rain tomorrow, too. I am hoping it is clear while I am at church. Then it can rain again when I get home. Actually, if I can squeeze in a walk with Liesl first, that would be awesome. She does not like to have raindrops touch her.
Off to dream about what I should stitch next...
