Dropcloth Heart Ornaments

A few weeks ago, I shared my finished Dropcloth Heart Ornament sampler, and I'm happy to report that I actually made them into ornaments, per their original intent!

With four different designs, the sampler was such a fun one to stitch! For the ornament backings, I used Scarlet Essex Yarn Dyed Homespun, which is what they are laying on in these photos. Yes, it's a lot lighter than the red on the fronts, but I loved the texture, so I went with it.

Rebecca, the Dropcloth shopkeeper, also had those tiny little brass bells in her shop, so just for fun, I added those, differently on each heart. Then I used red perle cotton #8 for the hangers. Super simple. Kinda want to make more, buuuut. I think I'll go ahead and move on to something else. Just not sure what yet!
