Tonight I finished Be My Valentine. This is tiny and fast! This was the freebie from Colorado Cross Stitcher.
It took me almost as long to get a decent picture as it did to stitch this little cutie pie!
I keep the pieces on my quilt design wall that are waiting to be finished. I took the first picture, then took the piece downstairs to put on the design wall. Came upstairs and . . ugh! It looked like there was blue in the middle – like the thread had faded.
I grabbed teh phone and went back downstairs, took a better picture.
Oh, yes, perfect! Started writing the post and wait . . the “e” on the end of “Valentine” is missing a stitch! I went back downstairs with a needle and thread. Got down there, stitched the “e”. Wait .. that was the darker teal. Took that stitch out, came back upstairs and got the right thread, went back downstairs and made one stitch using the correct color. Now . . I should be done!
Question: This is for Addie for next year for Valentine’s Day. I’m going to make the piece I showed the other day with the old truck too. Since both of these will be given to her in 2023 and I want her to be able to look at them and see what year I gave them to her, is it ok to put the date “2023” on it? Normally, if I put a date, I put the date I stitched it but that would forever bother Addie if I gave it to her in 2023 but it said 2022 on it.
