I have a new giveaway for you today, but it demands a little explanation. I'd like to provide you with a snarky valentine from my designing days of yore. It's a little rough when I look at what my patterns and pictures used to look like. But I still think it's cute, and perhaps someone would enjoy stitching themselves these alternative candy hearts. Most of my girlfriends, for example, would get a good laugh at getting these as a gift.
If nothing else, take from this that whatever skill you're hoping to improve this year, practice DOES get you somewhere! It's been quite some time since I used the old white wall as a background. At the time I thought I was quite revolutionary. LOL.
