Valentines and who sent it?

I have taken part in the  Secret Stitching Sweet Heart, this has been organised by Jo of www.serendipitousstitching.blogspot.com
Each person taking part posts a photo of a Valentine made by some one who you don't know, and some posts a photo of  yours on their blog and then you check the blogs to find yours... does that make sense???
Anyway it is a fun thing to do and you get to find other people'sblogs.

And this is the Valentine I made for my DH this year, each year I have made some thing different, so far I have given him.ivy grown over a wire heart, a made 3d card, a cross stitch heart shaped ornie, a wire heart with buttons, and a short bread heart,which I helped him to eat!
This year its this fabric card. It is scraps of fabric, ribbons, lace, yarn and a felt heart all sewn on with the fancy stitches that my machine does. I sewed it on to a piece of felt, then I stuck the whole thing on to sticky back card (I think I bought this years ago to make lamp shades. I knew it would come in useful for some thing one day!!)

I am very pleased with my efforts and think I might do something similar for birthday cards for friends. It was a fun thing to do and I got to use those fancy stitches my machine does that I rarely use.
Hope your valentine remembered you and sent you a card. mine did and he is cooking me a special dinner tonight.

Happy Valentine all

PS Dh had to take our dog to town for her trim and this is what he came back with.. its not that good a photo, but I can't take another as I have eaten it, and it was absolutely delicious!

You have mine! This is the first piece I ever stitched. When I was with my then boyfriend, I wanted to do something different for him. A lady in a craft shop said to try this, so I did! Originally the centre was blank but I decided to add our initials. We have been together for 18 years in April so it must have worked!
