My youngest son starts speech therapy up again this week, so in order to keep myself occupied during his sessions, I am starting a new embroidery project. One of my favorite holidays is Valentine's Day so I decided to come up with a decoration for my kitchen. I drew this heart myself (yes - no pattern used) and then colored it in with water color pencils. This is the first time I have ever colored onto fabric and I sure hope that the color will stay! I plan on doing some hand embroidery around the heart and flowers. I have purchased some thread but still not sure what color of thread to use around the lace - white or grey? Anyway no hurry with this project as I know that will not have it finished by this Valentine's Day.
I plan on turning this hand embroidery into a wall hanging. I have been making various pink blocks since Christmas in anticipation of this Valentine project. This started out as a table topper, but I made a few too many blocks - so now it will be a wall hanging. I am not sure if this will be the final layout - I want to wait until I finish the embroidery (it may change again). I am not using a pattern so I can make it any size I want - or until I run out of fabric!
