Another Fair & Square Received

This time, my stitching went all the way to Singapore, to the home of Jeanie C. (no blog)

Four Little Hearts by Indigo Rose
Stitched over 2 on 32 ct. Antique White with DMC 304 and 30666

I've loved this design since the first time I saw it, but hadn't stitched it yet. I decided to go with a "Valentine's Day" theme for Jeanie, and thought this would be perfect. I love how the rayon thread makes the Rhodes hearts and squares shine like little jewels!

She emailed me yesterday to let me know she received it and that she really liked it. I also enclosed a skein of my handdyed thread, Valentine's Day, in shades of pretty red, pink and white.

Jenn, you did a wonderful job on the stitching and the dyeing.

You've given me the idea to sub some purple rayon into the square for my F&S partner this round, she loves purple.
