i honestly love you...


Well, the stitching is done. Yay! I really like how it came out, and I think my parents will too. I even put it in one of my vintage frames...

This is from an all new pattern called "Hearts Day", and it is of course, all hearts. I especially love the bushel basket of hearts with text that says "I love you a bushel and a peck". Cute!

Also finished is something new that I have coming to the shop:

be mine...

Embroidered frames! Er, well...patterns for them. Included in the file will be six designs for embroidered frames. They are different sizes and shapes, and all are Valentine's themed. Also included is a tutorial for making a felt frame like I've made here, although you could use the frames in other ways too.

I'm really excited about these, and will probably make other sets of frames soon. But for now, to show how much I love you, I'm giving a pattern away!

To enter to win an embroidered frame pattern set, just leave a comment with a lyric from a love song! I'll choose a winner sometime on Thursday evening.

Oooo...and over on Facebook, I'll be giving away a Hearts Day pattern! Become a fan, and watch for the contest!

    I can just see my and my daughters making those frames. Pick us!

  3. Elvis or UB40, depending on your mood: "Take my hand, take my whole life too / For I can't help falling in love with you."

    Honestly, most of our favorite love songs to each other are inside jokes ("Run to the Hills" by Iron Maiden... long story), kinda depressing ("Only In Dreams" by Weezer), or instrumental ("Polly Wolly Doodle"... but only when played on bass guitar). ;)

    I adore the photo frames! They'll make a great love gift fir his new desk at work!!

  8. "Late at night

    Sittin' here waitin' for your voice on the phone.
    Fever turns
    to cold cold sweat
    thinkin' about things
    we ain't done yet.
    Tell me now. I gotta know do ya feel the same. Do ya just light up at the mention of my name? Well.
    Don't worry Baby. It ain't nothin' new. That's just love sneakin' up on you.
    If your whole world is shakin', Baby, if you feel like I do,
    That's just love sneakin' up on you."

    And I don't really like country music, but some of it is alright.

    Kiss Me
    by Sixpence None the Richer

    Oh, kiss me beneath the milky twilight
    Lead me out on the moonlit floor
    Lift your open hand
    Strike up the band and make the fireflies dance
    Silver moon’s sparkling
    So kiss me

    This song is just plain sweet :)
    Love your giveaway...fingers crossed xx
