Just a quick post today to let you know about some new Valentine's Day-related patterns that I've just published to my website. There are two stitchery patterns available: one of which combines embroidery and stitchery - and is FREE! Yes, Happy Early Valentine's Day to all my blog readers. The pattern combining both fusible web appliqué and embroidery is called Candy Hearts.

The other design, which is hand embroidery only, is called Sweet Sayings. I was inspired by the old-fashioned candy hearts that had various "sweet" sayings on them.

Both designs are very quick to stitch up with simple hand embroidery stitches, complete step-by-step instructions and full-size templates in both regular and reversed formats. You can find these patterns on my Chatterbox Quilts website. They both stitch up quickly, so there's still time to whip up a gift for one of your special friends - and maybe even make one for yourself.
While I attached hanging ribbons to both of these projects so I could use them as ornaments/decorations, they would be equally sweet as pincushions or shelf sitters.
I hope you enjoy these patterns and would love to see your version of them.
