I want to thank everyone for taking the time to read my blog and for leaving the best comments. I appreciate them all. I have been busy doing Valentine pin pillows. I have had the best time doing them. Hopefully Cheryl and I can get together soon to sew them up.
This is Be Mine by Threadwork Primitives. I used 36 ct examplar linen and the suggested DMC fibers.
This little darling is To My Sweet by Stacy Nash. I did it on 32 ct pinkish fabric over one. Love it.
These two are from The Primitive Hare's design called Little Valentines. All 5 of the designs are so nice. I will do the other 3 next year. They were done on 36 ct. LSL fabric (the name has left me) using SNC silk that I had in my stash.
This is the pin cushion from WTN&T's new design called Valentine Sampler. Again, I really like all the designs in this chart. It was hard to pick just one.
These are my Valentine decorations at the end of the kitchen table. Lots of cross stitch and I really love the pink depression glass candle holders I found thrifting. A close up of the bowl with the pin pillows that I have currently. I think I will have to get a larger bowl when I add the new pin pillows. You can click on any of the pictures for a larger view.
I put Crazy Love by CEC in a frame that I had in my stash. Not perfect but not bad either.
I also finished Nantucket by LHN. This was a delightful stitch. The colors are beautiful and I loved working on the 35 ct. cocoa linen. The color of the house is so pretty. Thanks for stopping by. Until next time ..... Happy Stitching! Deborah
