I made this for my partner in the Embroidery Hoopla swap, the theme this round was Places.  I chose to make her state of Oregon and put a heart over her home town.  I used waste canvas for the first time.  I received some in a previous swap but never tried it until now.  I chose blue and gold as those are the State colors.

                      

A couple progress shots

   

Removing the waste canvas, which wasn't as easy as I thought it would be...

                  

A close-up to show the detail
