I stitched this over Mother's Day weekend in 2003. This may sound funny but I took a road trip (by myself) to go antique shopping and sight seeing through Zions Canyon in southern Utah. I rented a new car, a Toyota Camry, and bought me a new cd of Kenny Chesney (the car had a cd player and my own car didn't). I had so much fun traveling by myself. The scenery was incredible and I could go at my own pace. I used alphabet letters to create the word "LOVE" and I stitched them in solid antique beads. I attached a brass heart between the "L" and "O" since there was a bit of a gap. I think this is one of my favorite pieces.
