Hearts for the season!

I'm not a big fan of the Valentine's day tradition. Hubster and I don't exchange gifts for Valentine's day. But, this year I've caught the Valentine bug and want to  make things with hearts in it. :D So, I started another sampler from Urban Threads called doodle heart. Here is the progress so far..


Since I can't stay monogamous to one project, I have another in progress as well. I've been wanting to try crayon tinting in embroidery and finally took the plunge. There are a bunch of tutorials on it.. Here are a few I referred : Little Dear Tracks and Urban Threads I got myself a 48-color crayon set from Faber-Castell and I felt like a kid when I worked on it. Here is my attempt at crayon tinting.


I'm glad with the results. Its a fun technique and adds a zing to the stitchery. I see myself using this technique a lot in the future. What is a new technique that you tried in your craft and liked a lot? Any fun techniques that you want to share..
