Gentle Readers and Dear Friends I heard that my Valentine Exchange arrived yesterday at Carol's. So, I think I will make a quick post about that piece.....
Here is a snaperoo I took before wrapping it up....
I used "Truly Thine" a BBD Loose Feathers chart - I think #6 - the folder is actually two projects. There is a sampler and there is a heart piece. I used a mystery piece of pink linen and the called for GAST floss. The finishing was my own inspiration, the chart had it finished as a pin pillow, well, my sewing is nonexistent - so I decided to transform a pin pillow into a pyn keepe. I dug around in my "craft stash" and found that I actually had some pink pins and ran to Cliff's Variety Store in the Castro and found some great velvet/lace ribbon et voila a Valentine was born. I sent along a couple of little extra goodies. I really enjoy making Valentine pieces - and was so happy to have had dear Carol as my Partner!!
There you go sports fans - another week gone and only 311 days until Christmas!!! Gotta get stitching!! We are off on Monday so I will be back posting on Tuesday - Have a super weekend!
