Hearts For Teresa

My blogging friend, Teresa, has a serious addiction to red hearts.

I planned to make her one for Christmas, but, you know how that goes. I made it last night based off a pin on one of my pinterest boards.

I dragged out a box of wool stash (clothing and yardage) and found the red and the blue (from a plaid) I was looking for. Nabbed my embroidery floss and a super awesome needle and settled into watching episode 4 of Downton Abbey. This heart took about 20 minutes more than the episode.

I actually had to grab a youtube video to recall how to start the blanket stitch - and how long has it been since I've made french knots?


  1. Why is it so hard to remember how to start the blanket stitch? I always have false starts until it finally clicks.

  2. Oh BOY!! How fun to see you made a heart.. for me? It' gorgeous! You are so good to me! *T*H*A*N*K* * *Y*O*U*!*!*!*
    ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  3. Nice handwork! I also have to practice the blanket stitch until it has the right rhythm.


I love comments. My heart goes pitter-patter every time there is a new one.
