Recently, someone on the 123Stitch Message Board gave me the three charts that make up the Hearts and Holly Mystery Sampler by Lizzie Kate. The suggested fabric was a hand-dyed linen called Doubloon. I don’t particularly like stitching on linen and the fabric was also available as 14 ct Aida so I ordered a piece the required size of 22″ x 13″. I also decided to stitch the three charts using DMC floss since that is what I had. I finished the first chart which is on the far left of the sampler. The three pieces are stitched side by side rather than vertically aligned. The colors are soft and pretty and I am liking the piece.
Since I have a number of pieces that I am working on a rotation cycle, this will be put aside for a couple of weeks while I return to The Wolf Pack. If you are curious as to what the finished Hearts and Holly Sampler will look like when finished, you can see it pictured below or visit the Lizzie Kate website.
Since the chart was given to me, I will be giving it away free (PIF) to someone on the Board once I have finished stitching it. Come back in a couple of weeks to see my progress.
Progress as of March 22, 2014. Not much more to stitch and it will be finished.
Last stitch taken on March 29, 2014. I still need to find a small gold heart charm to add and then decide on framing but the stitching is finished.
