All You Need Is Love!

I just had to add a little more "LOVE" around the house.
After all you can never have too much love in your home, right?

Design: Love Pin Pillow
This little pin pillow (4.5"x1.75") is stitched on 32ct. white linen using DMC variegated #99.
I just adore this variegated mauve thread and need to pick up more on our next shopping trip.

Design: Love
Stitched on 14ct white perforated paper that had been antiqued by me, using DMC #99 & 94 and a solid DMC. I mounted it on a piece of fabric covered poster-board and trimmed it with a beautiful very dark wine ribbon.

OK, so now I need to quit stitchin' up pieces that look like Valentines Day, but I just love the antique sampler alphabet from the March 2008 Cross-Stitch & Needlework. The alphabet was re-charted by Jane Greenoff.

Take Care Everyone & Happy Stitching


  1. Both of these projects are very sweet Sandy! I like the varigated mauve floss too!

  2. The finishes are so nice! :) I also love the mauve thread; it has a really nice varation to it.

  3. Your finish is just beautiful! Love both of them.

  4. I have just been looking at your blog and love all the hardanger projects you have done. I like your recent Love worked on perforated paper and the way it is finished. I see you like Jane Greenoff as well, I belong to her CSGuild and she has some nice designs in the members booklet that we receive.
    Happy stitching and thank you for sharing.
