The heart, a constant reminder of your loves and being loved, is depicted in this delightful six-panel basket with charming ribbon handle. Each panel features a Carolinian floral border with hearts creating the flower petals, each motif separated with a wedged border. Over the border on each panel is a valentine verse from an 1800's Scherenschnitte cutwork valentine and personalization and wedge borders on the upper edges. The basket is stitched on 32-ct. linen and lined with a coordinating silk highlighting the raspberry silks used in the stitching. Each of the six basket panels is joined with a specialty stitch that are joined to the hexagonal base. French silk ribbon is used for the handle.
In addition to courses that Marcia Brown is offering for this year we would like to hear from you if you have a particular teacher you would like to see as a guest on our online curriculum.
