Be My Valentine


Be My Valentine
With Thy Needle and Thread
35ct linen (pink substitute)
WDW Fibers

There should be a heart-shaped box in this photo too, but I didn't like the box when I was finished with it! Partly due to the color - had I used the original linen called for in the fabric it would have been fine, but the barn red and the pink kind of clashed.  I may try to make another box, or maybe not....

I put a piece of wool on the inside of the envelope and a button to close it.  It's supposed to be a little envelope, but mine is a needlebook.  

And so begins another week...

Just beautiful. I would love it if my husband gave me something like this for Valentine's day, actually i would also be happy if he just bought me the pattern and threads etc to do it myself. I'll probably make do with a bunch of tulips again!!
