The other reason I'm smiling is because I finished this cute little heart for a very dear friend's birthday. She is crazy about anything Irish and has visited Ireland a couple of times. It's one of Victoria Sampler's International Hearts Ireland. I changed the row of green and red stitches to smyrnas from the crossed diamond stitch because I was too lazy to try to figure that one out. I think it looks okay the way it is. My next challenge will be to finish it into a heart shaped small pillow.
I made a little progress on Of Female Arts this week and have finally reached the last border motif. The rest should go quickly.
I worked a little on Peppermint Twist but not enough to show a picture. The frog has been here on spring break this week. I think he likes the cold rainy weather.
Have a Happy Easter!
