Sweet Tarts--Project of the Week

Just in time for Valentine's Day:

You might not be able to see it, but the fabric has an opalescent sparkle to it. It is a 28 count Lugana. I worked it with size 5 and 8 perle cotton #3743. The finished size is 5 3/4 inches. It took over 25 hours (at least, that's where I lost track).

Now that Christmas gifts are behind me, I have no idea what I'm going to do with this piece. I'll either sell it on Etsy or stash it for a birthday present. If I can part with it, that is.

*note: I have decided to sell this piece on Etsy for charity--more details tomorrow.


  1. Oh, wow! (I consider myself to be somewhat articulate, but today I am down to two words: Oh! and Wow!)

  2. That is absolutely stunning!
