Sneaky Peek - Project #1

I'm sure that none of you have the tendency to work on more than one thing at a time, right? (Wink) I have found myself in that situation lately --- lots of irons in the fire!

Here is a sneaky peek of one of my projects . . . this is a Kaye Moore sampler that was graciously gifted to me, and I love it!  It will look similar to a flag when it is complete, and the hearts will alternate with the text, making the horizontal lines.

The hearts will be blanket stitched onto the sampler, and the text will note service in the Army Air Corps --- the pre-cursor to the Air Force, in WWII. This will take a place of honor on our mantel, next to a candid shot of my dad-in-law in uniform. 

Here is a close up of one of the hearts:

I'll show you more when it's done!
