Feeling The Love

 A little prayer flag made from an antique quilt block. I have one made for me by
Libby@ Paper Napkin Poetry, and I have to admit I copied hers quite a bit. She said she didn't mind...really.....
Remember when I emptied my sewing room to put in new carpet? I found this adorable cross stitch I did many moons ago. (many, many moons ago!) I'm not sure how to frame it. Suggestions welcome.

 
This was on  my design wall recently..I had good plans to get something done before Valentines Day. I guess it will wait until next year.
I was so close to finishing my Sally Post blocks. Now is the time!

Happy Valentines Day!

PS, I'd love to have you take a look at my Get to Goal blog. I'm working on a project that is dear to me. Thanks!

  3. Happy Valentine's to you! The prayer flag is so charming. I especially liked the combining of the quilt block with crochet because I crochet as well as quilt.

  5. Great post Lori... The Antique block is precious and the cross stitch.... Well... An heirloom! I would put a bit of black wool as a stitched or appliquéd order, then another bit of red outside of it. It would be perfect framed after that ;) Have a great weekend...

  6. I like Karen's idea about framing it with wool. I like to use a thick art mat board to put on the back of my framed projects. Sturdier than card board. Found it in the art area of hobby lobby.

  7. The pink mini quilt is adorable. Would look great with a applique leaf in the border? I think the cross stitch deserves a smart black frame, either cloth or photo frame. Love your work.

  11. I love the way your Sally Post blocks are coming along, and today's close up photo is nice to see. Do you choose the pinks, reds and golds/cheddars from your stash or did you start with a particular collection of fabrics? And the greens? I might start the quilt soon, and I'm not sure that I have the "perfect" fabrics on hand for this lovely quilt. Thanks for any info you might offer :).

  12. Cute prayer flag. Love the cross stitch.. But I am kind of totally in love with the pinks. I do have a bin full of brown and pink fabrics. Thinking....thinking...
    Happy Valentine's Day.

  13. I love the cross-stitch. I recall from my cross-stitch days that there were little pillows made with frayed edges somehow, but I can't recall the exact technique. Sorry. : (
    Those Sally Post blocks are so fresh and pretty!
