Three's the charm
For my third heart, I chose a horizontal band design, "lifting" a couple of motifs from one of my Eggs for All Seasons. I used peach tones of DMC floss--948, 754 and 758--that I'm more accustomed to using for skin tones, and combined them with DMC 712, an off-white, and Kreinik #12 braid 9192. The stitching was kept simple: basketweave and Smyrna crosses.
I could go on and on, filling in heart shapes with an almost infinite combination of designs and colors, but for now I think it best to get back to work!
