Three Dimensional Valentines...
from a Snip, a Scrap and a Thread.
Made with Love and Good Thoughts (tm).
Scraps of toile, tiny checkered gingham, a needle and embroidery thread became the tools that brought my good thoughts to life.
In the evenings, as I watched a favorite movie or program, I put my hands to this soothing task.
Completely crafted by hand, I would sew my good thoughts into each stitch.
P. S. Along with an abundance of Good Thoughts... each of these Valentine Hearts is composed of re-purposed items...fabric scraps from past sewing projects...or culled from a beloved but outgrown blouse of Rosie's. The thread was left over from a long finished embroidery project...stuffing pulled from a comfy throw-pillow that had fallen apart in the wash...and a few snips and crumbles of dried lavender (blossoms and stems) lingering from last summer's garden.
