An Early Valentine

My latest project required a heart.  Out comes my stash of bits and pieces.  And there it is.  A hand marbled heart on silk charmeuse.  It’s  a small piece with four hearts on it.  I only need one.  I have had this for years and now I can use part of it.  A little bit of embroidery on a foundation of needle-felt and I’m off to a good start.

Happy Valentines Day!
