Valentine Stitching

I just finished a few Valentine theme stitching. I kept on making mistakes and the finishings took forever, here they are:

Another emery, I bought a very cute heart charm:

Pam Kellogg Valentine Biscornu, I changed quite a few colors with the design and beads:

A French design, heart shaped pinkeep, this is my first heart shaped finish. Next one will be better. I used Vikki Clayton silk in this piece.

Hope everyone had a great Valentine Day. See you all again in March. Thank you so much for visiting my blog and special thanks for the ones who took the extra time to leave me comments.

More Strawberry emeries ideas
