Valentine Stitching

Happy Monday!!!!





A Token of Friendship freebie by Lori of Notforgotten Farms

I stitched this little baby up in a few short hours and even finished it into a pincushion

I stitched it on 35 Mocha w/Belle Soie threads, Vanilla Pudding and Fresh Raspberies, filled with crushed walnuts. The backing fabric is shown in the next photo

I plan on giving this away




Oh! It will look different. I messed the design up bad. I placed the F in the wrong place and before I caught it, I had most of Friendship stitched. So... I added the hearts on the left of the design.


And here's my February small for the 2012 Year of Smalls Blog

Garden of Love by Citrouille's Designs

36ct Truffle w/ Belle Soie Silk


You have been asking about the kitty, and I have forgotten to add pictures of her

It's been quite awhile since I posted her








Thanks for stopping by

Have a great work week everyone
