This is the question I asked Jo who works here at the Black Sheep picking and packing. Jo always has a new stitching project on the go so I thought it would be great to see what she has been up to recently. This piece is her current project a decorative heart design. The heart chart is featured in Crossstitcher magazine issue 249 February 2012 this is perfect for Valentine’s day. Jo has chosen to stitch it in a different colourway of golden shades. She plans to make a cushion with beading added to the design and finishing it with a tassel trim. This will be beautiful, enhancing the decorative feel. Keep an eye out for the finished cushion………..
As you can see from the front cover of CrossStitcher below the cushion is stitched in a red colourway.
