It all started with a heart shaped cardboard tag from my daughter's new dress, that I liked and kept to use as a pattern, and a piece of cream silk satin cut too small for another project
(I know, measure twice... believe me, I did.)
I stitched the outline of the heart with Portuguese stem stitch using ecru DMC perle cotton no.8
and from there on roses started blooming...
I am sooo happy to be stitching again!
