Heart Pinkeep & Strawberry

The first half of January is behind us and it's hard to believe~ I walk past this one particular tree several times a day at work, and I'm already seeing many buds popping out in the bare branches...... We surely have lots of cold weather left this winter season, but Mother Nature is responding these mid 60's temperatures.....    I was able to stitch and finish this sweet design earlier....  In time to get the piece back to its now owners before Valentines decorating begins.... I love its simplicity and it's accompanied with the tiniest of wool strawberries.....

The little vine makes this piece so special....

And, on the back, I put an applique heart with an antique button.... The little wool strawberry is detachable and simply winds around the button...

 

I could stop with just one....

Two hearts... Two strawberries.... I seem to do that a lot...

I hope you're stitching up many if your favorite LOVE stitches.... in time to display them in February ~

Speaking of Love.... here I am on the far left with 3 of my bestest of friends! We get together for dinner each month and last night we met for food, fun and fellowship at our local Bonefish~ I'd do anything for these ladies~ And guess what,..... together, in total, we represent over 100 years as educators..... 

 

Enjoy your evening with lots of stitching!

I stitched this but seeing them here, I want to do another. Your work seems to have that effect on me.

I am being drawn more to "primitives" lately and I love that heart. So glad you have good friends who have your back!! I have two that I have met with for lunch once a week for 20 years. Such a blessing.

Love your primitive heart, it's beautiful. A great photo of yourself and your dear friends. There are 4 of us that get together for stitching fortnightly and have done so for many years. We love our times together and set challenges for ourselves. A lot of fun.I have followed your blog for quite a while and been rather remiss not commenting, New Year now, more effort will be done.Take care. Shirley N.Z.
