I love Vero, 2

Here's the progress I've made on the I love Vero canvas.  I like to stitch the background and then go back and add design elements.  However, I couldn't resist starting that big heart.  I'm using silk lame braid in a combination of alternating rows of basketweave over 3 and slanted gobelin over 2, all slanting in the same direction. 

And in a "ain't life grand" moment, I broke down 2 weeks ago and subscribed to the Tennis Channel so I could watch the French Open.   Of course, television coverage this past week was at 5am on, you guessed it, ESPN2.  The Tennis Channel coverage started each day at 10am when I was safely at work.  I did set the alarm and watched every morning.  It's marvelous to watch all those muscles ripple in HD!
