French Bleu De chine Sweet Pea Heart

I generally don't post WIP because I don't work on big project. I have been stitching this heart design for almost one week, I have made quite a few mistakes and ended up ripping the stitches out. It is a very pretty design and my first with this designer. I do plan to stitch more of her designs in the future.

I have a few pictures of the Dream stitchers store at Mt Dora, FLorida that I visited on my vacation.

I bought a few old magazines, some threads, charts and the kit package for "believe in a cure", which is also shown on the above picture. I could spend a whole day browsing because she does have a big inventory of charms, bead, charts, and threads.

Thanks for the Mt. Dora store pictures. I've been wondering about that store. Not the best LNS in my area of FL, but I've heard of this one and have thought about a road trip. Your piece is very pretty. Keep working on it so we can see what happens!

Hi Anita,

I have been looking at your stitching and I am amazed by is all so beautiful. Could I please ask where you got the patterns for your biscornu? I live in the UK and I can't seen to find any nice patterns over here and I thought if you could tell me where you got yours from in the US I could contact them.

Love your work! Keep stitching!
