These three photos were sent in by Pat Myers from Fremont, OH. Pat embroidered several Valentine Heart doilies for her loved ones. Here is what she writes:
"Before I discard these photos (they aren't the best; sorry), I thought I'd share my version of your valentine doily. My Valentine gifts this year to three very important people in my life: My daughter wanted one as she loves anything valentine because our most precious daughter/granddaughter was born 3 months premature at 2.06 pounds 9 years ago. We have a big joyous celebration on valentines day for that precious baby girl. She gets the pink/purple for her room, Mom gets the red. Then my girlfriend redid her bedroom in blue and green. This blue/green heart looked absolutely gorgeous on her nightstand! (Yes, I was so excited to give it to her.....she got it early!) This is a beautiful design, although I cannot get the center as perfect as your photo shows. I get better with each try, though. I found it easier to soak for just long enough to melt away the Vilene. Then I put it together while still quite stiff. THEN when assembled, I soak for 30 min. or more to soften. Thanks for the designs. I love them!"
Thank you for sharing, the doilies are beautiful!
