My Heart is Home

Happy Valentines Day!
I started this project two years ago and thought it was perfect for my February Stitch from My Stash challenge.

On Instagram, I posted my progress

with my new project bag...
more on that in my next post.
It was a quick stitch and now it is fully finished:

The chenille trim is "Watermelon Juice" from Dames of the Needle and it matches the floss used ~ "Jakey Brown" by Classic Colorworks perfectly!

I love the backing fabric that I found in my stash as well.

Last night I went to dinner with Mom and my sister to celebrate Valentines Day.

Mom surprised us each with this sweet ornament that she made from 
Rebekah L. Smith's "Stitching Smalls Cozy Hearts"

The back is as sweet as the front.
My sister also gave me a gift, but I will save that for its own post.

If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.
~1 Corinthians 13:1-3

Wishing you each a Happy Valentines Day!

Blessings, Patti
