May Arts Valentine Hop

Welcome to day 2 of the May Arts Valentine Hop!
I've got a fun project to share!
I've used red burlap & hand embroidered it with 1.25" white silk!
I simply drew a heart with chalk on my burlap & stitched away.
I can't remember what this stitch is called- it's like a running stitch, but starts nearly in the middle of the last stitch- giving a rolled appearance.
I love the contrast of silk & burlap!
I used double-stick tape to attach it to a piece of foam core I had so that the burlap didn't pull when I hung it.

I used a needle with a large eye for my stitching. 
Like my fancy 'hoop'? Hahaha. In all honesty a hoop would've made this a much easier project!

Now don't forget to visit each blog & leave a comment- two lucky people will be chosen for a May Arts prize :)

January 2015 PTI Blog Hop & MIM #198

The theme at PTI for the hop is hearts, and the MIM this week is 3 panel cards.
I've used some Authentique patterned paper on one of the panels & fab new May Arts 1" solid with red glitter stripe ribbon.
Stamped images are from Tag-Its #11.
I tied some red burlap string around the card for the bottom image as well :)

Wishing you all a happy hop!!
