Won't you be my valentine?

Happy Valentines day!
This is a little sampler I cranked out today for my sweetie :)

Valentine Sampler
designed by The Goode Huswife ~ Anne Brown
Stitched on 28 ct. Vintage Country Mocha
using DMC threads in my own colors

I don't....

know how I'm going to finish this yet. Either a nice antique looking black frame or as a penny rug. I can see it in my mind's eye both ways. I don't know which I'd like better.

A little surprise...

arrived in the mail for me today from Sweet Stitchin' Sue - she's the nice lady that gave me the inner stitcher loan on Flower's of Lebanon, and she's borrowing my copy of Song of the Sparrow, so in thanks for me loaning it to her, she sent this sweet little stuffed valentine:


Darling isn't it?! It's all snuggled in a little wire basket and on display in our front windows.

Well that....

my little cupids, is all she wrote on this post. Stay tuned!

Until next time....
"hands to work and hearts to God"
Love and hugs,
Vonna

  4. Great stitch! I'm sure your DH will love and appreciate it, whichever way you choose to finish it. :) That little doodad would've taken me at least a week to stitch up, lol! What a nice surprise the mailman brought you, too! Happy Valentine's Day, Vonna!

  32. What a sweet piece; love the scalloped border.

    And a wonderful gift, too. It's an in-joke with my friends that I like anything which has "diagonal parallel lines"--this is no exception. Love it!
