Be My Valentine

Working with thread is my first love in crochet and stitching this dainty thread heart was pure joy. I combined a center rose with a lacy style of Bruges Lace to create just the look I hoped for. Lacy, girly, pink, flowery, and beautiful. This heart can be used to embellish linen but I’d love to hear what you’d do with yours!
