i completed MY Hearts Sampler last night.
I was going to do an extra row with my own hearts , that i designed a few weeks back, but i decided i was ready to move on.. i have other HDF sampler plans, including a black version of this sampler
all the details are listed below, a number of the colours i list as limited edition are actually available on the HDF site atm as skeins, Vikki has a limited number of skeins available for some of these colours, it is worth checking out, i can help with matching names to numbers if you need to , just email me
