♥ (day 11)...

handmade valentine
20 handmade valentines in 20 days...day 11. We're over the halfway point, folks. Can you believe it?! I thought we'd kick off this week with some more cross stitch action because I've turned into some kind of cross-stitching fool. I just can't seem to stop. Good luck, sweethearts!
♥,
Abbey

Cross stitching... totally reminds me of my grandma, sitting on the couch with her while she was making elaborate flower patterns fr pillows. I should like to try it again.
Gorgeous heart by the way.
