Immaculate Hart is a limited edition collaboration with Dragonflylotus handspun threads. It features the gorgeous threads from them and 30 count linen.
I have to admit, I had reservations with regards to the threads, because they're the thicker twisty kind of thread you only use one ply of (think Caron Wildflowers), but it only took one length of stitching for me to love these threads. They are super soft and easy to work with and have a great, rich color.
As for the pattern itself - I love the play on Immaculate Heart/Hart with the stag's antlers and the fiery heart/hart!
I stitched most of it watching Cleopatra now that it's back on Netflix streaming (one of my favorite movies!) and We Are What We Are, which I thought was quite decent for a horror movie, but very, very messed up. It was interesting stitching this, because it just felt so good in my hands, and I thoroughly enjoyed it, but I frogged and mis-stitched more on this little bitty piece than most of my large pieces. I found that odd. Still gorgeous and enjoyable, though.

These colors are killing me - they're just so rich and gorgeous.
edited to add the dragonflylotus (kit) fibres used, just for reference if anything:
