The Cardinal was Richard's favorite bird. He loved to watch them feed on our patio.
I found this little ceramic nest with two Cardinals perched there on the edge a long time ago
and decided the other day that it would make a great place to display an embroidered heart
for Valentine's Day. For "the old navy man."
I haven't made it yet, but thought I'd gather some "ingredients" together
and make him one. Surely I can do that before it's actually Valentine's Day.
So, here we are....DMC embroidery floss, a bit of old aged lace, the needles,
the thread (even it is aged!).
And, just for inspiration, I placed a needle book I make long ago....just the right colors.
And, a bundle of fabrics to choose from....although these may not be the ones I use.
Mother of Pearl buttons will line the nest.
There is my little embroidered heart Sampler.
I made those as a stitch guide several years ago.
I'll let you see it beforehand, but it will probably be my post for Valentine's Day too.
I'll add some others to that post.
Here I am....looking forward.
It's all good.
Stay safe and warm and have a happy heart.
