Beyond My Heart finis

Beyond My Heart - Blackbird Designs
32 count Silkweaver Antique Gold
Recommended fibers

I finished up Beyond My Heart yesterday. Pretty piece for sure. Much more subtle in colors than a lot of their recent pieces have been. I like it. :-)

I started on my ornament for the HoE exchange so I can't show you what I did on the train this morning. It's from last year's ornament edition of Just Cross Stitch. It was designed to be an over one on 40 count piece but I just suck at over one on 40 count so I'm doing mine over two on 40 count. I did give it a go this morning but after about 40 stitches I pulled it all out. It looked like crap and I'm glad I did. It was so much better looking over two. I'll be done with it by tomorrow I'm sure and then I have to start a Quaker ornament for the Quaker Lovers exchange. Then it's St. Reatham November. Mostly. :-) I'll toss a few other small things in the mix just to keep it interesting.

I could do over two on 40 but no way over one :-).
