February Challenge by Ren-Yi

Scrap Our Stash's February challenge is to do a Love project. Go read all about it! With February and Valentine's Day just around the corner, this is the perfect project to put some color and warmth into our icy, cold winter days. I'm ready for the ice to just go away - every where I look at our flat New Jersey landscape, I see a bunch of snow mountains. Time for them to go away.

So here is my contribution by celebrating "Love" :)


I Love You


The heart is crocheted from my stash of scrap yarn. Here an up-close look:

I Love You

I used the same frame concept, inspired by the lovely Princess Belinda but instead of it being stamped, I drew mine out with pencil, pierced the frame, and back-stitched the entire thing with black thread.
