Valentine Freebie Finished



Here I am again! Are you sick of me yet? I have had a lot of finishes so far this year & I have yet to pick up any of my WIP pieces. I truly intend to do that soon!!!
I actually was going to yesterday, until I found this freebie on the 123 message board. It is called Love & it is by The Stitcherhood. www.thestitcherhood.com
I stitched it on 28 ct. lambswool linen. I received a box of natural colors of linen floss for Christmas, so I thought this would be the perfect project to try them out. I used a pink & light green. The fabric I used for the back of the pillow is a perfect match to the green.
I am attaching both pictures that I took, because they both pull different aspects of the pattern out.
Have a great weekend & thanks much for stopping by my little corner of the world!
