Delicate Vintage Lace and Hearts Wreath

This afternoon I had a couple of hours to spend on sewing/crafts and since I have a box of 6" grapevine wreaths that I have been itching to use,  I decided to create some Valentine's Day wreaths. This is the first one that I completed this afternoon.

The smaller heart is covered in some wide vintage lace, and the bow is constructed from additional vintage lace and a larger piece of ivory tulle. I embroidered "Amour" in mauve colored floss on the tea-stained, canvas tag which also has some narrow vintage lace tied through it.

It turned out exactly as I envisioned it. I love it when that happens!

                                                                A closeup of the bow!

I zig-zag stitched around the edges of the canvas tag and embroidered it before tying narrow vintage lace through the grommet.

I stitched and stuffed these sweet little hearts and attached satin bows. The fabric is 100 % cotton canvas.

Did you perhaps notice this pile of of crocheted pieces underneath my wreath? I recently purchased them at this beautiful little antique shop that I frequently visit. They are perfectly sized for totes, pillows, etc and I cannot wait to begin some projects so that I can use them.

They happened to be sitting on my table while I was photographing my wreath so I decided to use use them in my photos.

Anyways, I am very happy with my little Valentine's Day wreath and I hope to be able to whip up several more over the next few days........
