Heart sampler is now complete.

Ta-dah! the heart sampler I've been working on is complete.

Wondering whether it needs a border to tie it all up neatly. What do you think?

The net has thrown up so many heart motifs which I couldn't just leave as graphs so I've decided to make a second one. I'm sure there will motifs enough to make a hundred but I'll stop at two, besides I have limited wall space to display them on.

It's so beautiful! I'm not sure about the border. Maybe a thin one? Either way, it is fantastic!

Rupr it thanks, I love it too.

Thanks Chris & Priya.

Yes,I think a really thin one would be sufficient - thanks for your opinion La Manosa.Must put in my name and the year etc too somewhere as unobtrusively as possible.

Oh this is lovely. Watching the progression has been wonderful. I vote for a thin red border around the outside.

Faith said...

They are really lovely - what a nice theme to stitch! :) I would personally frame them for bordering (as they are).

Paula Hewitt said...

beautiful. i like it as it is, i dont think it needs a border. why not stitch your name/initals and the date inside one of the hearts?

Julie said...

Wow! This is stunning! So much detail.

Pam said...

Oh my goodness!!! So beautiful. So much work!Really it speaks for itself, so maybe a very thin white frame? Who knows. All I know is that I love it.

That is truly lovely - well done.
I don't think it needs a border, but do think you should initial and date it like samplers of old.
Cheers, Sue McB

Putting my name/initials and the date in one of the hearts is a great idea Paula thanks.

Tanguera, Faith, Julie, Pam and Sue thanks for the appreciation. I'm glad I can count on so many all across the globe for constructive feedback and heart felt appreciation which does wonders for me.I hope I remember to reciprocate from time to time

I have seen you working on this all the time we have met maya. Only last week when you and S were talking I realized there a lot of math to this apart from pure art. And my god it does take a long time to get done, admire your perseverance.

It is beautiful. I was thinking of a swag border, but I can see how it might take attention away from the hearts.

karen said...

love this, it's gorgeous and I say it doesn't need a border.

You must be crazy to want tto give that away. The amountof work and involvement that must ahve gone into it. Istead feast us to some more of your creativity now that would be a beautiful give away....... hearts are meant to be given...... a different slant to the words!
