Let the people choose-February-Hearts

Hi everyone!
This wasn't a good week. It started with my birthday and I was sick!Had the flu so nothing much to say for my birthday. Also other things happening around make me sad and I don't really feel like stitching.
But there are some things I can do. Like this.Let the people choose, Jo's of Serendipitous Stitching first Saturday of the month activity is to show you things one would like to stitch or have stitched according to a theme.
This month the theme is Hearts!
   If you are looking for free cross stitch heart patterns there are some here at the DMC site.
I have subscribed to their newsletter and they send me their news about patterns every now and then.
This is one of their free patterns.

Also Alita page has free patterns also Valentines.

What have  I stitched?
I have lots of threads some are not DMC, some are old, vintage, no numbers on them but I really want to use them up so I decided to use them on gifts I want to make and not to care about numbers.
I wanted to make a heart gift for someone I really love so I chose this free pattern from pinterest.

 I followed the link and found the pattern on this blog from Brazil called Croche maravilha de art.
So I stitched the pattern with all the blue threads I had on a gifted fabric with huge holes and turned it finally into a cushion!I won't show it to you now as I am keeping the photo for the Valentine card blog hop.
I'd also love to stitch this heart too one day.It's from the blog Passion Creative
Which heart would you choose to stitch for someone you love?

The heart of heart you chose to stitch is definitely my favourite, especially as it could be stitched in so many different colourways. I look forward to seeing how your version turned out when you post it for the Valentine Blog Hop. :)

Beautiful heart filled post. I love the blue one you have stitched up and look forward to seeing how it turned out when the blog hop comes around. Hope you feel better quickly and other things settle down for you. Take care!

I love the blue heart; thanks for the freebie link! All of these options seem like they could be stitched in whatever colors you're feeling. A belated Happy Birthday and hope you get to feeling 100% again soon!

Thanks for taking part in The People's Choice this month. Love all the different heart designs you have shared with us this time, I really like the blue heart, looking forward to seeing that one stitched.
Hope you are feeling better soon, being ill on your Birthday is not fair!

I couldn't give him enough hearts! He is the best. I loved seeing all the designs!

Pamela said...

Happy Belated birthday. Such a shame that you were ill. I hope that you feel more like yourself soon.

Happy Belated! I hope you got to celebrate after your birthday when you felt better!
Your hearts look beautiful, I can't wait to see the blue one.

Lots of pretty hearts to stitch. Good idea to use up old floss without numbers on small stitching projects.

Mini said...

Looking forward to the blue heart being stitched. Its going to be lovely.

I hope you are all better now! I'm pretty sure I've already pinned that DMC heart for future stitching (ha), and I love the floral one at the end of the post; I bet it would look fabulous in a variegated thread.
