Hearts and Red Robins

A little while back I stitched a Christmas Robin by The Victoria Sampler for my Nana but never found a frame for it until about a week ago.  Originally, I was going to stitch the little robin into a pillow ornament for my Nana, but she requested that she wanted it framed so that's what I did.  It was my first time framing a stitched piece ever and I'm happy with the result! Once I find a good frame for my geisha, I will also be framing her myself.

Onto hearts, cause it's close to Valentine's Day.  I was thinking about what to do for my husband.  I found the perfect heart to stitch and the perfect threads and linen!  I got the pattern from a wonderful Barbi's website.  I have never stitched a heart before so I've been thinking about the process and how to finish it.  It will take me awhile, like all other finishes, because I muse over how to do it for a week or so.  Hopefully he will love it and cherish it with his heart, like I cherish him! Before I can post the heart picture, I have to wait for permission from the creator of the pattern.  But here is the robin!
Stitched on 32 count Natural Linen, DMC Threads

I love it. Was it hard to frame yourself?
