Hello my friends, I hope you are enjoying 
Valentines Day.

A surprise posy from my Hubby.
Flowers from our garden.
I joined Cheryl`s Initial Valentines Swap of gone stitching blogspot .
I stitched Janice Woods Quaker Motifs  Freebie heart pattern.
Using DMC v115 .
Then using a motif heart and Michell   @
initial I complete this side.

As you can see I added heart sweets and a heart shape tin of full of sweets too.
This is the other side.
I made it into a needle booklet.

This is the thread holders and felt needle pages.

My lovely surprise from Helen @ 
A lovely initial heart,an amazing mug mat (love the entwining hearts) and 
a selection of chocolate kisses. Yum.
Thankyou Helen for the lovely gifts and it was lovely having a chat to you.

She has stitched this so beautifully and I now have it hanging off one of the little draws on my treasured wall unit.
