New finish

I've not stitched for 3 days, as I've been too ill, so I still haven't added any beads to my main wip, however I did stitch my Grateful hearts exchange piece at the end of last week. But I can't show it yet, you'll have to wait until it reaches the recipient. In my search for a pattern I came across this, so I just had to stitch it for me. It's 'Where the heart is' by The Drawn Thread. The recommende fabric is 40ct but I stitched it on 28ct, I didn't have any 40ct, and I liked the colour of this fabric with the threads. The fabric is cream blush Juliana. I don't know what this looks like on your monitor, but it's nothing like the real thing on mine. I'm going to try and make a tuck pillow, with a heart shaped aperture for it, so wish me luck. That's all for now, tomorrow I'll be returning to work, so hopefully I may get some beads on the wip at the weekend.
