Danette used paper piecing to make the heart. It looks seriously complicated to me. Here is a closer look.
It matches my Mothers' Day roses perfectly.
Thank you so much Danette. This mini is a real treasure. I love everything about it!
Here is what I sent to Danette.
It was square, honest! I just can't take decent photos.
I love this design. It is a pattern I found in a Patchwork & Stitching magazine, designed by the amazing Jennifer Reynolds of Elefantz Designs. I just changed the word to suit the theme. It was fun to stitch - I learned satin stitch and chain stitch in the process. Oh, how I love chain stitch! It is so forgiving!
I sent my favourite chocolate goodies too. I do hope Danette enjoys them as much as I do.
Thank you Cheryll for organising such a great swap. I think you do an amazing job!
