Fans and Letters

There are quite a few valentines in the fiori line.

This fan is quite sparkly, stitched with Fyre Werks silver fiber. The magenta hearts are filled in with simple laid patterns, vertical, horizontal, or diagonal. A finishing touch is the silver heart button placed at the center bottom.

This letter sealed with a kiss is the smallest in the collection. On 18 count,  It measures only 2 3/4 x 3 3/4″. The ribbon and button finishing really set it off.

When my nieces and nephews were little, one of them would start grinning and shout “It’s love time!” Then they would all shout it and we would all pile on top of each other and hug and kiss furiously. Thus, this canvas.

Originally the letters were in a a clockwise direction, so that when the sentence ended it would be midnight, a time for a New Year’s Eve kiss, but everyone had difficulty reading it. So, now the letters go counterclockwise.

I especially like the palette of pale pink, magenta and black. The hearts and arrow are stitched in Petite Very Velvet.
