Funny Valentine

I stitched up this little Halloween Valentine Freebie this past week. Just a little modification to replace what looked like crosses to me (I didn't want any religious icons) with teeny little black cats. The finishing job produced a kind of distorted heart-shape, but I consider that the 'rustic' look. I added an edging of black beads to see how that would work out as a border. Not too bad.



And this little Waxing Moon freebie was left from last year's Halloween to-do list. Just has the right feel for fall even though it's summer weather here today.



Both designs are stitched on 18 ct Aida in Cafe Mocha by Enchanted Fabrics.

These are cute, Annie! I actually dropped in to see if you had mentioned receiving Sue Noble's exchange card yet. I am so p---d off with her! It's the last time she'll be included in one of our swaps! She doesn't reply to emails for ages, and hasn't thanked me for the card I did for her, or even mentioned it on her page...ah well, you live and learn. Sorry for the rant, and sorry you haven't received anything from her...yet..
