Pieces of my Heart features the addition of laces to the lovely style of an Emie Bishop design. The 32-page book is full of images, charts, instructions and illustrations with 4 pages in full color. There are 4 samplers: The Teaching Sampler to teach edging and insertion stitches; The Tribute Sampler is a traditional sampler with rows of stitches taken from antique samplers as well as Emie's style; Small Sampler that is a small version of the main sampler that incorporates new stitches and techniques; and Pieces of My Heart, the complete design shown. There are also small projects such s a needle roll and scissors fob.
"I just wanted you to know that I received my first one (Hardanger Card Club) about two weeks ago. I stitched it last week and am thrilled with the results. We have a son shipping off to Afghanistan in Feb. so this will maybe help me to concentrate on something other than where he is... you know how we can get lost in our stitches. Thanks so much for offering it and glad to hear that so many have joined the challenge! - Dede
