'love in the middle'

Happy Valentine's Day!


I found this pattern on Wild Olive last week, it's called 'love in the middle', you can find the pattern here for free. I've done cross stitch before but I've never done a full embroidery project before, it was a lot of fun to make! The fill in stitch done in the heart was my favorite part to do.

No one is going to be seeing the back often but I wanted to make it look decent anyway. I used this embroidery hoop framing tutorial. I cut out an extra felt circle and glued that to the cardboard, it's nicer to look at this way.


  1. This is so sweet. I love the colours you chose, and I totally love that pink hoop!

  2. lovely! i cover the backs of my hoops a little differently but it will be good to see how others do it, thanks for the link.

  3. So cute! It brought a big smile to my face. :)

  4. Gorgeous - I have a hoop obsession right now :-)
