Red Sampler

My EGA group has decided that for 2011 we are going to concentrate on finishing projects we started in previous years and want to finally finish. I hope to have several to post here!
Here is a sampler I finished during the February snowstorm. This was a stitch-along in the Hand Dyed Fiber forum that started last September. The thread is Perfect Red 6213 from Hand Dyed Fibers and the fabric is Toasted Almond.

The chart is a free one that can be found here:

It is the "Petit Sampler Rouge" from Le blog de Louisin.

I changed the sampler some to make it more personal.  I changed the design in the circles to hearts and blood drops.

Here is a snail I added. I found a free chart online and changed it a little to make the shell look a little like a heart. I also graphed the crosses.
And here is a Laurel wreath I graphed. All the changes I made were to add symbols that relate to another hobby, the Society for Creative Anachronisms.
