As I was looking through the stitches that I have graphed out for the various stitch guides that we have at the shop I came across this great stitch that was used in Kate Dickerson’s “Be Mine” Heart. The stitch was used as the background using 3 different threads. The diamond was stitched using 2 strands of Gloriana (shown in yellow). The slanted stitches were stitched using Silk Lame Braid (shown in green) and the cross stitch was done using Entice (shown in pink). This stitch can be adapted for either 18 or 13 count canvases.
We are still offering Kate Dickerson’s Heart Club. There are 4 different packages available. Give the shop a call if you are interested in stitching some great hearts!
I have to admit I have not done this stitch but am adding it to my list of new stitches to try. I hope you will give it a try!
Happy Stitching – Stephanie
