QUAKER FREEBIE HEART


Last week, sometime, Nancy from BBinteractive group expressed she was working on a quaker heart. I have been interested in stitching a quaker design. But, some are a little too "busy" for me. Beautiful medalions, but toooooo many in one spot. Nancy was kind enough to post the link: http://gazette94.blogspot.com/
I spent a lot of time and ink printing out a few of the wonderful and high quality freebies, including this quaker heart. I started it this morning, after finishing mr snowman. Using DMC color variations floss/thread. It is slow going with making single cross stitches, one at a time. But is well worth the effort to have a good color variation. The size will be about 5 3/4" x 6" on 32 count fabric. A big thank you to Nancy for the link to this great site.

Deb ~ Your collection is so vast you have done some wonderful stitches. I love your snowman and Quaker Heart and have tried to download them to print but it wants to print all of it. 39 pages, I only want two images and the graph and the color guide. What am I doing wrong? Can you help me?
God Bless your work is beautiful!!!

Deb, all your Gazette 94 stitching looks great and so happy you liked the link! The DMC color variations thread is beautiful for the Quaker heart, and the snowman reminds me of the sculpted designs by Jim Creek. You do very nice work!
