Coeur Romantique update

So I wake up this morning to find that Blogger has "improved" their website and I am NOT HAPPY with the changes. I cannot find a damn thing and I do NOT like having to hunt and peck to find what I need. I do not like forced upgrades for the sake of candy coating a product anyway, and this is no exception. I use Blogger as an online chronicle, if you will, of my stitching endeavors, and I had become accustomed to having things in certain places. There was nothing wrong with the product the way it was, and IMO, this was a case of trying to fix something that wasn't broken to start with. Grrrr!

At any rate, here is what I have so far on Coeur Romantique. It's stitching up a LOT faster than I thought it would and I am pleased with my progress so far.

Designer: Reflets de Soie

Fabric: Vintage Belfast linen in Country Cream

Fiber: Gloriana Threads in 079- Monet's Pond

***Stitcher's Notes: Stitched one silk floss thread over two fabric threads.***

Well, I best be off. Need to do some things before work. Hope everyone is having a great week! :)
