Valentine Finishes



 Julianne and I decided to exchange valentine pieces this year.  This is what I chose to stitch for her.  That little bird just spoke to me.  I know that the package has been delivered, but I haven't heard from her.  She was out of the country last week, so she may still be.  I hope she likes what I stitched for her.
I'm not one to stitch Valentines for myself, but the B and V in this piece really struck my fancy, so I had to stitch it.  The finishing took me most of the day today.  I could not get a handle on piecing it together.  It happens when you start to age! LOL!  But, I did finally get it stitched together.  I like it very much.

Both designs are freebies.  I am sorry to say I did not make a notation of who the designers are.  ***edited*** Be My Valentine is a primitivebetty's design.  On Julianne's I used Cupid thread and on mine I used Buckeye Scarlet.  Both were stitched on opalescent white 32ct fabric.

Well, tomorrow nite is the Super Bowl. I don't have a favorite team in this contest, but I am drawn to that kid QB Kaepernick from San Francisco.  May the best team win. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

The one that you stitched for yourself is from primitive betty, I believe. Love the beads on the ric-rac!

Both Valentine pieces are wonderful. The piece with the beautiful B and V seems to be very popular among the stitchers as I have seen it on several blogs already. And I have printed it out, too.
