Always enjoy seeing your blog and all your beautiful stitching. So many wonderful patterns! And the Heart finish is excellent. I was just reading some other blogs with tiny pictures and it was so refreshing to come to your blog where the pictures are nice and large. I can actually see the patterns and your perfect stitching.
