A Little Heart

Happy Feburary Ladies!
We had our Primitive ornie swap last Thursday, and I took an old colander full of Valentine gifts as a door prize. One of those gifts was this little doorknob hanger. Sorry the picture isn't very clear. I coffee stained it, baked it, and stuffed it with sawdust and pinned the hanger fabric on with some rusted safety pins. This was a random use of several free cross stitch charts . I liked it in the end, and am making another one for one of my daughters.

This was done on C C Canvas , but I am learning how to use linen. I desperately NEED the light from Joann's with the magnifier on it! LOL

If you have any interest in any of these charts, this is where they came from. I used the "Love" and the large key, and the bottom heart under this same key, from a freebie chart by The Stitcherhood .

The top key with the heart is from Bettys newest Valentine freebie, the bluebirds and tiny heart below the word love are from the "beholden" freebie. I used the same heart up between the birds and just used back stitching for the ribbon the birds are holding. The middle left key is from the "oh Sweet Valentine" chart. You can see all of Bettys free charts here primitivebettys .
I can't remember where the bottom left heart came from, but it is the outline of a heart so you could do that with any of the other patterns. The "my" was just backstitched free hand. I reversed the left middle key and the bottom key so that they faced in towards the Love.

Thanks Betty and Maria bunches and bunches for the charts you share with us. :-) I enjoy them

Carpe diem.......Seize The Day

Love your little door knob hanger. You did a great job adding elements from different patterns. Thanks for sharing where you got the patterns. I really need to get back into cross stitch.

Have a great evening!
