Hi there!  Thanks for coming back, nice to see you here again:) 

This was a learning project for me, my first time putting one of these together, about the size of a very large hand.  Stitched the wording on natural Osnaburg w/DMC 2 over 2 and made a long narrow banner, frayed edges a wee bit, made a heart template, finished with flannel, poly stuffed with jute hanger.  I used little x's to close the side for a really prim look, first time for that too.
Below are few more, but smaller.  Top one is a pretty word from Chocolate Cat's freebie *I Love You* with a few wee hearts added, stitched on natural Osnaburg.  Middle two are simply *Love*, smaller versions of first pic. Lower one is freebie from The Stitcherhood on tea dyed 32 ct. Belgian linen, GAST Gingersnap 2 over 2 and backed with hand dyed wool called *Steak Sauce*, poly stuffed with jute hanger.  I'll do more of these in the future, but with German words of adoration, for my beauties Autumn and EmmaLee:)

Yes, Valentines weekend, to enjoy or not, as we choose.  Either way, I sincerely wish each of you a gentle  weekend filled with warmth, love and peace.  DH will be receiving suet cakes and seeds, a most unconventional gift, but why not share the love with our fine feathered friends!

What's everybody else stitchin this weekend?  Looking forward to some blog reading:)
