Valentine Finish

I stitched this Valentine Freebie by Primitivebettys this week and finished it into a pincushion. I first saw this design on Mylene's blog and thought - "now there's a must stitch".

It is stitched in DMC 777 and 3799 on self-dyed fabric.
The red border around the design is worked in chain stitch - I wanted some more red around it to "frame" the design. I am so happy with the way it turned out :)
Now it is back to Girl from Alhambra - I can't wait for that big finish!
Enjoy the rest of the week and Happy Stitching!
