Love, Love, Love
The other day I was watching "Love, Actually" while sorting through some of my embroidery thread and those two things combined to inspire this little piece. I found some Memory Thread from DMC and thought I really *should* do something with that.
As for "Love, Actually", I totally get goose bumps whenever I see that scene in the church, after the ceremony, when the surprise music starts playing. "Love, love, love". So that's the inspiration! And Valentine's is just around the corner, so quite fitting too. Although I'm not such a big fan of that particular 'holiday', so I made it a little less lovey-dovey with a bit of blue.
I didn't use a pattern for this, I just wrote the words and drew the hearts and then stitched along those lines. I think stitching over my handwriting has actually improved how it looks! :-)
Feel free to borrow the idea. It worked up pretty quickly - you should be able to do it in an afternoon.

Here are some places you can buy Memory Thread: UK, US and Australia. For other countries, try looking it up with your favourite internet seach site. Or maybe check your local craft or sewing shop. Even if they don't have it in stock they may be persuaded to order some for you. :-)
