Queen of Hearts

Not too much crafting happening lately. I started this piece sometime in December and began to think I'd never finish it. I'm generally a one-piece-at-a-time stitcher so that was rather unusual for me. But it's all done now. The design is "Queen of Hearts" by Prairie Moon. I may have selected a fabric that's just a bit too dark, Zweigart 36 count Dirty Linen, but I like it anyway. I used a mish-mash of various pink flosses that I had in my stash. I think that queen is so cool, especially the teeny feet! I've turned it into another mini-quilt for AAQI.



I made a teeny cross-stitch label for the back. Next time I try that, I'll make it a bit bigger.



And in honor of Valentine's Day, I'd like to give away the chart to someone who would like to stitch it. Just note in a comment that you are interested, and I'll do a drawing if there is more than one person who would like to have it.

Another darling piece for such a worthwhile cause, Annie! That queen is really intriguing looking, isn't she? You did a nice job on the back label, too--great idea! (What is the number 9424 in the lower corner for?)

Happy days.

Great finish! I don't need to be entered in the drawing as this is in my stash. It's really nice to see someone stitch it.

Anne said...

So adorable Annie!! I love her tiny feet too! You made this little piece so pretty with your details!! I'll pass though on the chart, since I don't really stitch Valentine things. I did last year and never made it into anything :( Maybe I'll finish it now!

What a super cute finish! Great job, Annie. I'll pass on the chart because while I do love the design, I don't know when I'd stitch it and I don't want to be a pattern hog if somebody else would stitch it sooner.

Love the finishing, too!
