Yes, today is all about COLOUR, bold and glorious colour!  You know I am all about colour by now!

This is a very BOLD example of using a selection of leftover bits of threads, both variegated and solids.

Several years ago I sold sampler packs of 10 meter skeins of size 5 perle cotton. I list these in the shop every once and awhile as “mixed” samplers so make sure you check and see if there are any. I think there just may be a couple remaining!

My idea at the time was packs for wool applique enthusiasts as I had started a wool applique project myself.  There were a variety, all mixed colour combinations. Susan had purchased several of these packs and decided to sort through the stash one day in stitch group.  She asked Dominique if she wanted to use some to experiment and this is the result. 

There is no pattern for this heart, simply curved bands with all sorts of stitches on 18 count canvas.  The entire design is solid stitching so any colour of canvas could be used. Once again, just goes to demonstrate how leftover bits of threads are ideal for projects such as this one. AND, I know we all have those leftover bits. Get your canvas out!  

This would make a very fun heart to stitch for the Hearts for Hospice program. Check it out.
