The bottom one is one I am doing for the Dr. who did my second heart ablation almost 2 years ago. After he did the first ablation I stitched him a flying eagle. When I took it to him he was so excited and said he shouldn't except it but that he WOULD. I think men should get excited about needlework but they seldom do. It made me feel great that he was so thrilled. He's a great Doctor. His skill is amazing. He uses a tiny probe to go into the heart through the groin vessel and burns, ablates, anything that looks like it will cause the heart to go into A-fib. I stitch with a tiny needle. He looks at my handy work, I stitch and live because of his. Amazing!
I had good intentions but it is really a hard piece to stitch. It has many blended shades and there is no reference point as to the color. I had to mark off the chart, which to me is like stitching it twice. So I just put it up and life took over. I have worked on it off and on many times this year but have not gotten it done. I have the frame already and I think I better reorder those mats. Someone in the frame shop probably used them, too like they did with my Tiger Eyes mats.
I will rotate it with Seaside Sweethearts until I get them both done. Not to worry I have many, many, many more to do.
I love this shot cause you can see the shadow of my spiky hair in it.
I just hope he is as thrilled with this small token as I am with a heart that beats correctly. I just hope I don't have to have a third.
Hope he is still breathing!
Don't let me down Dr. Z!!!
Thanks for looking ~
