Hearts, Roses And Vintage Engagement Rings

I just finished stitching some hearts in a variety of Valentine's Day colors. Hearts and roses are some of my favorite things to stitch. 

The counted cross stitch charts for the hearts can be found in A Rainbow of Stitches. It's a great book filled with many fun cross stitch charts and embroidery patterns.

Pink and red is a favorite color combination of mine. Antique gold is also always welcome in my home too.

Speaking of hearts and love....Twenty years ago, my husband surprised me with an antique engagement ring. We were on a beach. He asked me to come look at a shell and gave me the ring. My ring is similar to the one featured on the show GIRLS. It's pretty but modest with filigree and tiny diamonds. Vintage rings were not as popular as they are today. He had to hunt for one. That made it even more special. My ring is the one on the pink fabric. I still adore it!

Happy Stitching! xx~ Jilly
