  9. Has everyone seen the embroidered love letter on the Bright Star film site? It was the grand prize winner in their promo contest for a $5,000 diamond ring. It's great for Valentine's Day.

  10. I never knew that embroidery could have its own month like sewing. I know I have been in a rut when it comes to embroidery. No ideas of what to make, but I do have some pieces that I have to work on, and this is certainly the month to be working on them, huh?

  13. Awesome! All the more reason to stitch away.

    I just finished some embroidered hearts for Valentine-themed pillows and sachets. I started with the outline of a heart and experimented with ways to fill it in.

  15. Hooray for stitchers! As I sometimes have a stitching short attention span, I'm doing a pillowcase and a notepad cover (when I get bored with one, I switch). My "multi-tasking" drives my husband crazy.
