It always strikes me, as Valentine's Day approaches,
that "Love" should be celebrated everyday of the year.
For it is, after all,
The Greatest Gift of All!
"Love Suffers long and is kind;
Love does not envy;
Love does not parade itself about,
it is not puffed up;
does not behave rudely
does not seek its' own;
is not provoked, thinks no evil;
does not rejoice in iniquity,
but rejoices in the truth.
Love bears all things, believes all things,
Hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never fails."
(I Corinthians 13:4-8)

I love the beautifully muted roses of this fabric
that I used for the back of the ornament.
Stitched for my sister-in-law, Marsha,
who adores "HEARTS".
She displays them all around her house year round.
Happy Valentine's Day, Marsha!
Most of my stitching endeavors these past weeks have
included hearts in the designs.
BBD "Small Token Reward of Merit Pincushion"
Stitched on 32 Count Vintage Sand Dune Linen
Worked with Crescent Colours Threads
