now what do i do with it?


oneprettythingAs seen on CraftGossip.comUpdate: I still don’t know what I’m going to do with this little bit of love, but it’s featured in the Valentine’s Day Roundup on One Pretty Thing.

Still looking for a Valentine’s Day craft? How ’bout some cross stitch action.

love cross stitch


I stitched this up on 22 count Aida, so it’s tiny – about two inches square. The design is based on the Robert Indiana sculpture in Philadelphia’s John F. Kennedy Plaza and created on KG-Chart. Time is tight these days, so please forgive the cell phone pics of the finished work. The stitching is done, so now what do I do with it?

  2. You’re welcome. Enjoy!

  3. Thanks for the pattern! I love to cross stitch and I’ll do this for my daughters as a special gift from “my heart to theirs” get it, sorry, lol!! I’m going to use it as a framed gift. Thanks again!
