A Valentine’s Sentiment

Over the years, I have made a few Valentine’s gifts for my hubby.  Not every year.  Just once in awhile.  This year, in a store, I saw a pillow with “I Love Us” on it.  I loved the sentiment but the pillow was a little too pricey.  So I came up with my own.

I used cross stitch patterns from this book.  It is amazing how many different alphabets and motifs they have in this book.

I used some of the leftover denim from the footstool slipcover.  I already had the aida cloth and floss as well.

I fastened it with 3 buttons that I had leftover from another project and stuffed it with leftover quilt batting.

I’m pleased with how it turned out and it didn’t cost me anything!

I don’t think it will be something that we use.  It will be more decorative.  And it is entirely possible that it will migrate to a room where it doesn’t have to be moved every night.

But on Valentine’s Day it will be in its place letting him know, in another way, how much I love being us.
