Cross Stitched Love


I like to take little cross stitch projects with me when I travel since they don't require taking loads of supplies. Since we haven't been traveling, I haven't been cross-stitching. This is one I did last year, on the one and only week-end trip we took to see family early in the fall. I kept the card design simple so the stitching would take center stage.

This is just awesome Esther! Great job! Hopefully you'll get to do more traveling this year (if we can get covid under control that is). Thanks so much for joining in the fun at our Double D ‘Valentine LOVE’ challenge! Good Luck and we hope you’ll come back often.

Wow that is awesome, I can't figure out how you cross-stitched onto the cardstock like that. I just bought a cross stitch die, kind of bummed it isn't much bigger than the tag die I bought but a little bigger, I would like to do more. That is a fantastic pattern, too cute, like your added hearts to it!
