I've been stitching ...

I have a goodly number of skills but honestly, embroidery and stitchery aren't really amongst them. I have good friends who will confirm this - it is not false modesty - if you want your thread knotty and a bit grubby then I am your girl. If you are not adverse to having the back of your stitchery look like some kind of insane join the dots - well I can do that too. I don't do neat stitches and please don't ask me to count them - it is just not gonna happen! However, despite my ineptitude with needle and thread, I think I may have found an outlet for my would-be embroidery longings ...


... it was just a matter of finding the right medium! This still needs a bit of refinement but I think it will work - especially if I pay attention to details like - oh I don't know - drilling the holes in a straight line! (sigh).
This is pendant size and was once a spoon. I was gonna call it "Hash Heart" but think that is a bit dubious so if you come up with a better name, let me know!

Oooooo pretty!!! I like this.

Tried working with the concept of hash and heart and decided that all permutations that I could come up with all sounded dodgy - hashed heart, heart of hash etc. Tried working with stitch too eg. Stitched with love, heart of stitches, but they all sound cliché. other possible ideas you could work with are number (ie the hash symbol being the symbol used for number), cross stitch, patch....

Basically I can't come up with a good name (although that is not a skill of mine!!!) but I like the pendant. :-)

just an idea - they call the hash symbol 'pound' in america. Although does that go any better with heart than hash? Probably not but something to think about ...

It looks so good - I love it!
Of course the hash could be noughts and crosses or tic tac toe so it could be Love Game or My Heart is Game or ?????
