St. Valentine’s Day is coming up, and the theme of love is another popular subject for cross-stitch patterns, which give me the perfect excuse to browse for patterns to create this little collage:
Clockwise from top left:
- “Be Mine Valentine” by Lizzie Kate
- “Be Mine” by Heart in Hand Needleart
- “Valentine Sampler” by Cottage Garden Samplings
- “Be My Valentine” by Country Cottage Needleworks
Have you completed any Valentine’s stitching? I participated in a workshop at my embroidery guild about using DMC Memory Thread. We are working this free pattern from the Memory Thread brochure. It includes a heart and the word “love” worked in the memory thread. I have not made a whole lot of progress on it even though it is a simple project. Couching the memory thread is time consuming, but I’ll try to share a progress photo soon.
