After a couple of busy weeks filled with work related stuff, things finally slowed down enough to have a little time to stitch this afternoon. It was good to finish this little linen and lace heart garland!
This heart was simply embroidered with lots of lazy daisies and french knots. It became the centerpiece of the little garland.
In between the hearts, I strung little mother of pearl buttons on strong cotton thread.
I love the way it looks hanging across the front of the little old white shelf!
Here is the shelf, decorated for Valentine's day. At first I added several more items, but it looked cluttered and uninspiring, so I pared it down to this simpler look.
