A Quickie

I stitched this little heart for someone as a surprise. (I'm trying to buy her forgiveness for not getting the Christmas card in the mail. --- No, I'm not above bribery if it helps. lol)



I put it in the mail yesterday. I hope she likes it.

I just stitched the heart on some tea stained fabric with purple thread (she loves purple). I couldn't decide how to finish it off. I fretted about it for a week at least. Then I decided to sew it onto a piece of cardstock. Then on the back I put a phrase about love. I figured that would be good to have out for Valentine's Day. I took some purple wire and ran through some little holes that I made and twisted the wire around to hold it all in place. It was really quick and easy and I'm pleased with how it turned out. Hmmm.....I may have to keep that in mind for making other similar things.
