I've been free form hand stitching little hearts.
These are the wool ones I showed you last time; thank you for all the encouragement, by the way!
I covered them in stitches with bright perle cotton
I edged these hearts in black thread; their shapes are very "loose"
I couldn't resist doing a white on white heart with vintage laces over it
I might add three perfect little pearl buttons to the front -- I bet you can guess just where!
More free stitching, on tiny hearts
The red one looks a little too Christmas-y, no?
I think I like this one best.
I told you I was going to take some time out for paper art last Saturday, and so I did. I made a Valentine banner.
I bought the chipboard pennants very inexpensively at Tuesday Morning a while back...
and covered them front and back with a selection of papers.
I wanted it to have a vintage feel, so most of the elements are antique.
I really enjoyed the process of choosing some good stuff to use, like very old doilies...
and this antique crepe paper Valentine.
I mixed old and new and I really had a ball!
I strung them together with red tulle and decorated each of the holes with tiny silver toned brads.
I wanted to put something, like coffee filter roses, on the back of each pennant -- maybe I will in the future.
Are you festooning your home with pink and hearts and flowers for February?
