Love with a Capital L August progess

Hello!  August was a great stitchy month for me, made lots of progress during the Olympics, with the SAL event on Stitch Maynia (Facebook group).  I also visited a LNS and picked up some variegated cotton thread for the big capital L at top left (Valdani "terra cotta").... haven't tried it yet though.
Previous progress:

 I finished page 12 and set up my personalization section at the bottom, including some of the left border.  After I placed the first letter of each line (they are centered), I realized a few extra motifs would help fill out the space.  Some people commented on my Flosstube video and offered suggestions: entwined wedding rings and cupid with an arrow- I like both.  Does anyone have recommendations for books with sampler motifs?  I am looking forward to working on this project next weekend... maybe I'll try the Valdani thread.


  1. Wow!! It is absolutely stunning! Great progress!

  2. Great progress! Love seeing this on flosstube.... I do like the idea of entwined wedding rings in gold. You could have doves with your cupids or even swans....
    Hugs xx

  3. Very beautiful! And I love you Flosstube!

  4. This is lovely! I look forward to seeing the motifs you choose.

  5. It's really coming along you'll be done in no time!
