I can’t believe I’m almost done with this Lace Heart Wedding Sampler for our friend! I’ve barely had time to stitch except for a few times during stormy nights and it’s just coming along so quickly. (My new counting pins helped a lot with this recent faster progress!)
The original chart has two doves backstitched in Kreinik one on each side of the heart, but I’m not stitching those, because honestly I don’t like the way they look, they seem awkward and more cartoony than elegant like the lace portion of the design. SO, I figured it better to just leave those off. Then I’ll stitch the names and date in the center and add the beads around the heart and I’ll be done – then there’s just framing to be done.
I haven’t decided what type of frame yet, it’s always so hard to choose a frame for something that is going to hang in the home of someone else. I was thinking a white frame would be appropriate, but maybe too bright. I’m open to framing suggestions here, please!

Thanks for following along with what I’m stitching this week! I’d love to hear from you about what you’re stitching as well.
