love letters




This little stitch from the new Blackbird Designs Joyeux Noel book was so much fun to stitch, I did it twice :-)




Once for me, and one for a friend!
I do believe it's my favorite thing I've stitched in all of 2009!
I used the recommended threads (except for using CC Pea Pod instead of the Putty called for) on the called for fabric, which is 32 count PTP Dill. Good stuff, wonderful stitch. My plan is to have these made into the little tokens box like pictured in the book :-)
