First, an update on the chickadee wreath. (This is actually from last week, I just never got around to posting it. *blush*)
Next, a new start. This pattern is from an old issue of Cross Stitch and Country Crafts magazine, and I'm turning it into a small wedding sampler. The bride is a family friend, and she is marrying a nice farm boy. I've changed the wording from "bless this home" to "love grows here," and I have a few other modifications in mind. Obviously I'll need to add their names and the wedding date. Right now I'm trying to decide if I want to stitch the 3 hearts as charted, or if a row of Rhodes hearts (or another band-sampler style stitch?) would be more interesting.
