This was the first piece I ever stitched with Hand-Dyed Fibers (HDF), and the beginning of my silk addiction.  It was also the first piece I finished when I resumed cross-stitching after a hiatus of 10 years.

Pattern:  Carribik Heart (aka Herz von Inge)

Designer: Inge Galepp

Fabric: 28ct Tan & Gold from Stitches & Stones

Floss:  HDF – Winterberry 1427, green and yellow mystery colors from grab bags

Started:  August 30, 2009

Finished:  December 19, 2009

This pattern was stitched with the designer’s permission in the Sticklounge yahoo group (it was known as the Marquoir group when I joined and stitched this design).
