This beautiful piece designed by Brenda Gervais aka With thy Needle & Thread. I fell in love with this pattern after seeing it stitched on Flosstube. Stitched on 18 count Aida Sterling by Picture This Plus. Flosses are a combo of DMC (372, 613, 3032, 3756,931), Weeks Dyeworks (Gunmetal, Seagull, Navy, Light Khaki, Sandcastle, Pamlico), Classic Colorworks (Hazelnut and The Gentle Art ( Endive, Slate, Cornhusk).
This adorable pattern is by Christiane Dahlbeck. I have looked forward to stitching this piece for the past year. This will be a cute addition to my decor. Stitched on 14 count Aida colors I chose all in DMC 310, 435, 433, 3864, 989, 744, 519, 907, 776, 727, 904, and Blanc. I made slight changes from the original- part on accident, part on purpose.

Christiane Dahlbeck's design out of this book is one I have wanted to stitch for the past year. It is in the same DMC threads as my previous post- I did add 2 more shades of green- 907 and 989. I hope to pop this is a little frame for next March. Aida fabric in white 16 count.
I don't think I posted this last year but I stitched this piece in 14 count ivory Aida in DMC. The floss colors are 3864, 433, 435, 310, Blanc, 818, 500, 904, and 704. 704 is the bright green and I will say I really like this color. The design book is in German and I picked colors that appear very close to the design. I have several of Christiane Dahlbeck's books. The patterns are sweet.
Another adorable Heart in Hand design that I stitched this winter is in the Wee One collection entitled Valentine Bird. I did make a few slight changes. Cross-stitched I. 16 count ivory Aida with DMC flosses:. 223, 304, 610, 712, 729 and 841. Heart motifs are so fun to stitch.
Heart in Hand has some of the best Valentine cross-stitch patterns. This quick stitch is Bird in the hand Valentine's Day. I used hand dyed Aida (coffee/tea dyed) 16 count. The flosses are all DMC: 223, 712, 841, 838, 3716 and 3721. I stitched two threads over one. This will be cute as a small pillow for decorating next year.
