I was online looking for something completely different and found a few free Valentine projects you may enjoy. If you are speedy, you may have them finished by Saturday!
The first one is a quick to stitch quilted heart from Nancy Zieman. You can check out Nancy's blog here.
It is a paper pieced pattern and Nancy provides a quick tutorial on the technique.
Next up is from one of my favorite blogs...Mary Corbet's Needle 'n Thread. If you haven't already checked it out, be sure to go there and sign up for her email. The Love embroidery can be found here.
And, one more embroidery piece. This set of paisley hearts should be quick to stitch and looks really nice in overdyed floss.
The last three patterns are for cross stitch pieces. As a policy I do not post photos of actual charts so you will need to follow the links to see what they are!
First is a darling Quaker Heart from Tempting Tangles. The link will take you to the Wichelt website, but for more on Deb's designs please check out her Tempting Tangles website.
There is another small Quaker style valentine on the Embroiderbee blog. She offers a number of other free patterns as well.
Last, but not least, is a lovely valentine from Stitching the Night Away, another blog well worth your time!
