Red Hearts for Valentine

This pattern in time for Valentines Day....
 a vintage gingham cross stitch for whatever you choose. I have all the different colors of gingham..., but my preference is the palest pastels, Then the cross stitch looks like lace. I think napkins with a heart done in one corner would be so pretty.. Maybe a small tea cloth with the hearts only in the center...
My favorite apron, (well ok,they're all my favorites) is done in white thread on pink gingham..I just love it...but I don't wear it as I do so many of my aprons. I may not wear it, but it's hung so that it can be seen.
 I hope you enjoy the little pattern..and that you make something with the pattern. The cross stitch on the gingham squares is so easy..I used to love the counted cross stitch on aida eyes have gotten to where I can only do small amounts at a time.., but the squares on gingham are so much more easily seen, that's what I need to use for awhile.


  1. Very sweet hearts to cross stitch. Thanks for sharing. Blessings!

  2. Oh, I LOVE it CC! I'll have to see if I have some red gingham around, with Valentines Day coming up! ~tina
