    I picked a design that is made up entirely of hearts.

    This is the fabric piece. I believe it is satin and a bright pink color.

    Here's how far I got today. There are some very small elements.

    I draw the entire design on the satin with washable marker.

    Day 2, Jan 2017

    ...and I continue sewing in the design...

    Day 3, Jan 2017

    ...and sew on (bad pun)...

    Day 4, Jan 2017

    ...and on and on...

    ...and to the end. I finish with a lacy border and my signature.
