Happy Dance~~

I've just finished stitching Willow Hill Samplings "Heart and Hand"~~ So happy!!!! And how appropriate to show this to you all in the month of Valentine~ This is actually a wedding gift for a dear friend, and now I'll have to go find a perfect frame for it!! That means a trip to the craft store~ Happy~

I enjoyed stitching this very much!!! Loved the colors and design, especially the border!! I've also learned how to stitch a Lazy Daisy, which I think turned out really cute!!

This is my first time using hand dyed threads, and I have to say they do add a little something to the whole picture. I'll definitely try them out again in the future~
