A Valentine Heart

I've been seeing all the wonderful Valentine projects and thought I really should do something! This is Coeur Romantique a free design from the Reflets de Soie website.

I used some fabric from my stash and a free sample of Needlepoint Inc. silk floss (No. 755). What fun to raid my stash and pull together a quick project! Now I must get back to a little smocking and Star of Wonder ornament.

Your heart is so pretty. I downloaded it too. See what you started?

Bastet said...

The heart is lovely Von. A great quick stitch. Have you decided how you're going to finish it or is it going into a pile to decide later?

Myrna said...

Hi Von!

Oh... that turned out very pretty! (I'm still working on mine).

And that large rose on the bottom is just the size I need for another project!

Thanks for putting this in your blog.

It's lovely Von :)

I've been meaning to stop by and say thank you for your comments on my blog and your encouragement. It's much appreciated! And you're right - it's very appropriate that I'm stitching Alpine right now! I was thinking that when I was watching the opening ceremony and the bit with the Alpine horns :)

Chiara said...

Your Coeur Romantique is lovely!!! It was Pefect for s. VAlentine!! Form me no Valentine project this year....maybe for I'll do something the next one!!!

Litla Skvís said...

What a pretty looking heart! And quite unusual!

I thought about stitching something for Valentines day.... but I then decided not to. I want to do the Valentines Bird from HIH though, I think he is just too cute!

kirsten said...

That so good you bin working hard on that!

Carina said...

Your Valentine heart turned out gorgeous, Von! Thanks for sharing the link; it is now added to my chart notebook! :)

I really need to know how you manage to get any stitching done with such a full house let alone all the stitching you actually accomplish! I only have four (although they are all 8 and under)and there are MANY days I don't get a single stitch in!

What a beautiful heart.
