This cross-stitching design features a sweet sentiment expressing love, using shorthand for “I heart you.” The design features a heart shape in place of the word “heart” and the letter “u” instead of the word “you.” The designer of the design chose to use black thread for the letters and a variegated thread for the heart, but the text notes that you can choose the colors that you prefer for your own design.
The design is said to be quick to stitch up, and it can be put in a small frame or used as a card. The design has a dimension of 14 count fabric which is perfect to fit in a three-inch hoop. This means that for each inch of the design, there are 14 threads of fabric. The result of this is a fine, detailed finished design.
It is a great project for those who like to express their feeling with handmade things, or for those who want to try cross-stitching but are not sure where to start. The design is simple yet sweet, making it easy to work on, and it also doesn’t take much time to finish. With this design, you can personalize it, with colors of your choosing and place it in a frame or even give it as a gift to someone you love.
