No...I did not raid Toogie's fabric stash! Anyway, since I saw how sweet her hearts looked I thought I'd stitch some for Valentine's Day; it may end up being a gift. The large heart is done in my 200X200 hoop and I show it placed on a luncheon plate (8 1/2 inches diameter); the smaller one is the 5X5 size and you can see it in relation to a tea plate (6 3/4 inches diameter). Since Oliver, BC is in the Okanagan Valley of southern British Columbia and is known for its fruit, I used a cherry fabric for the backing. https://www.kreativekiwiembroider...

These are really great! I like seeing the different fabrics and effects they give the design. I think one of the great things about this site is that it inspires us to sew interesting designs that we see actually stitched out, and to improve our sewing skills. I look forward to seeing more of your work!

Thank you. I just had to post these pictures since I had similar fabric in my stash to that which Toogie posted earlier! I think that the 4X4 size coasters would help use up scraps. Will have to play around. Avis

That's a good idea! A coaster for every season or holiday!

No, you didn't raid my fabric stash, but I might raid your finished embroidery stash!
Wow! The 8x8 makes the 5x5's look small and I like my 5x5's. Lovely job and very nice gift!

Thank you. I think that the smaller sizes would sure help use up fabric scraps that are too big to throw out!! They look great on both sides, too. Avis
