Two of Hearts

For You

Happy Valentine’s Day! As you can see, I have a finish to show you. I will be giving this to Eric later today after dinner. I am really pleased with how this came out once I restarted it. The lettering does show up better in person. It has smyrna crosses as well as some Algerian eyelets. The tin frame the chart recommended was not something I could get my hands on, but I like this one with the gold heart on it. I hope Eric likes it! This was stitched over one and is only about 2 1/2 inches across, if that. Did I mention that I started this piece back in January of 2006. It only took two years to finish – HA!

Next up, I finished my January Red Thread. I was really needing small projects to work on this week, because my shoulder is still bothering me. I also didn’t really feel like working on anything too complicated. I did use three strands of thread for the scarf, and I did go back and redo the dark brown of his eyes and buttons with three strands – I’m pleased with how it looks. I’m moving right on to my February block for the Red Thread SAL in the hopes of catching up. Once I’m through with those, I will need to start work on my Neighborhood RRs. Today is a happy day, so I will wait until next time to share with you all the details of what is going on with the RR.

My second interview went well on Tuesday. I am feeling pretty confident about this opportunity. Keep your fingers crossed!! Tonight we will have some champagne and another piece of our wedding cake after dinner to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Tomorrow Eric is taking me out for drinks at that fabulous martini bar we went to last year. It’s kind of a splurge, but I think we both need a night out!

I am grateful for finishes and my sweet husband!
