Sshh! Don't tell!

It's Valentine's Day tomorrow, so here is a sneak preview of the Valentine I'm giving to DH. He rarely looks at my blog, so I'm quite safe!

It's made from a vintage Valentine image I downloaded from Google Images and printed onto fabric, with various embellishments. I sewed it all onto a piece of buckram (much cheaer than pelmet Vilene or Timtex, but just as stiff) and embellished it with lace and ribbon. The two doves (you can just see them on either side of the figure) were actually table confetti I picked off the table at a wedding. I poked a couple of holes in them with a needle, and treated them as sequins! When I was happy with the front, I used spray glue (505) to fix the back onto it, before zigzagging all round. Of course, I've written a message on the back, but I'll leave that to your imagination!

I won't tell him but I'm sure he will be delighted when he hangs it in his car instead of those fluffy dominoes.

WOW - that's do know that this will be the one day your DH does read your blog :o)

My DH reads mine and it always surprises me, 'cos I didn't think he'd be interested.

You're hubbie will love it Lynda I'm sure - the time you put into it will be very heart-felt. Enjoy your day.
