As I explained in an earlier post, I prefer an airier look for the heart band sampler from DMC than is actually charted, I have completed the first six bands, It's now time to stitch the bands at the top two curves of the heart.
So, out comes the ugly orange gridding floss, the tweaker's stand by. The earlier bands were easily worked out in my head but these last two bands will be a bit trickier. Instead of one central point from which to count, there'll be two. And there are the two curves to plot. Finally, what will I put in the center medallion?
A monogram, a charm or a button? And, if a button, do I sew it on as surface decoration before making it up as a pillow or afterwards, to dimple the pillow? Here are two button options, both mother of pearl.
I'll have to do a little stash diving to find some charms that might work. I do like ex[lore all my options/
