I do not decorate for Valentine’s Day. There is no particular reason why this holiday gets the décor snub. I am still in full V-day spirit. At the flower shop I have been cranking out hugs and kisses bouquets like it’s my job…oh wait, it is my job.
Anyways, here is my one Valentine-ish project. I embroidered this small fabric hoop. I have no real embroidery training. I just make it up as I go along. I penciled my own script onto the fabric and attempted to backstitch along the lines. I do want to improve my embroidery skills and knowledge. I found DMC’s site with some basic useful info that I will be referencing for future projects.
This is a photo of our post-Christmas mantel and the Valentine embroidery hoop. I hope you have a happy Valentine’s day! Please think of me and all of the fun I am having knee deep in pink carnations and baby’s breath.
