Working on Heart #15

I'm still in pickles-making mode, but working on Heart #15 in coffee breaks. This one will be for swapping through Chains of Hearts, the Yahoo group. For this one, I was inspired by the Heart I did in a hurry that I did on my Jeans Bag. This is it:


For that one I did the Chicken Scratch by copying crosses from gingham onto tissue paper, and working them:


Also, if you look at the naked #15, you will see the bare right-hand side that is perfect for Chicken Scratch.

(I really have to watch what I am doing - I see by Statcounter that someone has happened on my blog by looking for "Naked Chloe")

If you look in that set, you will see another Heart I worked direct onto the denim using waste canvas, but that was a higher count, like 14 count, from memory.

So this time I working the crosses using waste canvas, but I think this one is 12 count, and I am working with Perle 12 Finca crochet cotton. I go across a double set of lines to make the crosses, not just one set of lines - all the waste canvas does is give me the perfect grid.


Do call back soon for progress.

I see that you're back in your comfort zone with the colours chosen;
I wonder what result we'd get with a search for stripped chloe.
AND,I'm glad you set the record straight about CoH membership.

I'm going to have to try this Linda. It looks so cool! Probably not on one of my valentines but on a bigger piece.

Hah! I have only one message for you, M2 - that it was very clever of you to pick that this one was pieced a couple of years ago, and dug out to be finished. :)

Next one will be quite different.

(Waving to Pam, who would do stunning Hearts)
