Heart Ornament Sampler

Should I wait until my heart ornaments are completely done to show you my latest Dropcloth Sampler finish? Probably. But that could be a while, and I'm pretty pleased that the stitching is done at least. But don't worry. You'll see them again one day soonish.

Again, this sampler was stitched with #8 Wonderfil perle cotton, mostly from my Picnic collection. It was fun to have four small designs to stitch, each with their own palette. Simple stitches, choosing thread colors as I stitch along, is my modus operandi. 

Truth is, I'm still deciding how I want to finish these off. Dropcloth's Rebecca Ringquist shared some ideas in a recent Christmas Ornament chat, and I'm still mulling over my options.

So do you have a favorite amongst my hearts??


  1. Oooh, they are all fun and evoke different thoughts for me, but the top spot is vying between the star burst and the basket weave. Do you have a favorite?

  2. still loving the star one the best I think.... so pretty!

  3. Fun Christmas ornaments, the embroidery is beautiful adds texture and sparkle!
    Good idea to get started on them now.
