I promised some photos of my progress on the Valentine Heart Swap inchey, so here goes!
This is what it looked like when I began to pin it; I used two kitchen linens. One is a double damask white towel, and the other is a beautiful vintage napkin with red roses on it that I have been hoarding saving for something special.
And here is how it's looking today, after many hours of sewing! All of the incheys are attached, and I added a layer of vintage doily/runner at the bottom, over the napkin.
I added a few bits of colorful stitching here and there.
Suzanne's little signature was so cute I wanted to feature it alongside her inchey, which is pale blue.
I also sewed on some stray bits of lace and a few sweet embellishments that Mercedes gifted me with her inchey, like the soft white flower with the pearl center.
I'm planning yet more stitching, especially in this bottom corner.
You can be sure I'll show you when it's finished.
This is the only inchey that didn't make it on to the sampler I'm sewing -- the one made by Hope.
I have something special in mind for it, so stay tuned.
So...my husband asked what I was going to DO with this creation.
Cheeky of him, no?
At this point, I'm thinking it will either be a wall hanging or an actual table runner/centerpiece.
