I can see the end to this sampler now, have unpicked the cretan stitch and substituted some more blocks to do hardanger in.Also added a heart at the bottom, my initials and bless you.
Beads are scattered about, green and some pearl which I thought worked with being 40.I am going to unpick the 40 for the second time, first time done too big and now not big enough.
As suggested by a few friends I have added a border but only four sided stitch and still in green as Catherine does not want any other colour in it, hope she will accept the pearl colour beads.Not sure about the border but restricted with fabric at the top.Also wonder if I need to do any more around the large heart as the fabric looks a little bare. I am sure one of you will come up with some good advice.
I am leaving the cut work until the end.
