Just a few days left in February so here are some more hearts to share:
CROSS STITCH Hearts
These are from a band sampler. I think they are pretty in their simplicity.
I found this not too long ago in my pile of 'stitched-but-unfinished' projects. Years ago it was stitched on 28 ct amber linen with DMC floss and Mill Hill beads with a little shank button on the bow. It's crazy quilt look and nostalgic feel was appealing to me. This could have been made into a pillow or even framed. Instead I tacked a narrow tatting-like lace around the edge, backed it with muslin and put a little pearl cotton hanger on the back.
I’ve toyed with the idea of turning this into a card and putting a message on the back like “Remember Me”, or “To” and “From” written in colored ink . I can even see this with a pocket on the back to hold special cards. It could even go on the front of a picture or scrapbook album. The pattern is Victorian Elegance “Forget Me Not” by Homespun Elegance No. 122.
I’m partial to the watermelon heart; how about you?
LOVE BIRD Heart
And for all the love birds out there (I see that smile!) – two love birds surrounded by a heart!
I enjoyed sharing these hearts with you; I hope you liked seeing them.
