From My Heart To Yours

I realize it's Fall, and most people are pulling out fabrics using golds, orange or green.
But, I've decided to be daring and once more peek inside my UFO Bucket, coming out with a project just waiting to be finished.
(after all, Valentines Day is just 103 days away!)

From My Heart To Yours, pattern by Annie Unrein, was designed by Heather Purcell of Superior Threads.

The inner heart sections were stitched together using Texture Magic.

I used the heart shape stitch on my Bernina to add a little extra love.

A nice blend of machine and hand embroidery completes this small 14" X 16" wall hanging.

Since Christmas fabrics began arriving in the stores in July, I'm sure the Valentine fabrics must be making their appearance any day now.
Sigh.
Lo00nnng sigh.
And consistent with my other "finish up the UFO projects" goal, I'm either very late for last years Valentine Day, or very early for 2012.

yes I imagine Valentine fabric will not be far from now. The stores do rush the season - but of course that is because we all want it! Your project looks great, looking forward to seeing it finished.
