When Chelsea needed a double-lung and heart transplant in January, her friends on the Love2Stitch Bulletin Board knew that she was going to have a little down time while she recuperated. They put together an amazing care package filled with all of their best wishes and some cross stitch goodies.
This Heart of Mine (THOM) from their package to work on because of the title and because there weren't any color changes. She picked Gloriana silk in Midnight on some Crossed Wing 28 ct linen, 2 over 2. Chelsea did an amazing job, especially being shaky and weak (and likely experiencing better living through chemistry.)
It wasn't until she got home that she saw the heart hidden in the motifs. I can imagine that she had a whole lot on her mind during that time. We all understand also that sometimes it's nice just to make one x. Then another. Then another. The bigger picture eventually comes into focus.
Chelsea, I'm not sure if the physical therapists allow happy dances, so we will energetically dance one on your behalf while you continue in your recovery. That is a fantastic and inspiring story - thank you for sharing it with us all.
