I think I am about finnished on the sampler, one or two things I am not too happy with but I am always highly critical or my own work.
Whilst visiting Catherine on wednesday I showed her how far I had gone and she put it on a maroon cushion which looked really good so have introduced some maroon and will stretch it over maroon fabric I think. On the top small hardanger blocks I used some maderia 40 machine thread with the flower thread to add a bit of sparkle.This was suggested by one or two friends. Planned to use it in the main heart but afraid had such trouble with it shredding, unpicked it and left it out.
Re the border, I do not think I can make it any bigger due to fabric restrictions hope it works okay as it is.
Not sure if the heart at the bottom should be in the maroon but do not think so but might change my mind prior to framing. The little cat charm is rather sweet and managed to find the "made with love" heart in a shop in York.The cat I allready had from ages ago, there do not seem to be many charms about now, will have to find an outlet fro when I start playing with the crazy patchwork
