I’ve been distracted by the bountiful snow I’ve been chasing from east to west and back again over the past few weeks, hence my laxness in blogging.  I promise to share some of my (in)sights from that adventure soon.

Today, my valentine (who shares my passion for winter and skiing) and I will be going on a ski tour, over the meadows and through the woods style, chocolates tucked into our pockets.

This sweet print found here. More of my valentines here.

I take the jumps,

And do them right,

But my heart jumps

only

when you are in sight!

 

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!

Needlework designs have migrated through the centuries, adorning household linens, everyday and special occasion clothing, and textiles for the aristocracy and the church. The embroideries hold hidden symbols and talismans – stars, crosses, birds, stags, the tree of life, and hearts – supposed to keep away demons and witches and avert calamities.

I’ve adapted a cross-stitch design from the 16th century to create a valentine theme that can be downloaded to your desktop as wallpaper. I chose bright folkloric colors, perhaps because the winter landscape is still so blue and grey and I am craving color. The motifs could be copied and used in your own knitting or needlework projects. I hope you enjoy my valentine!

Ti’amo!

Ti’amo – “I love you” in Italian!  I’ve been busy making monoprint valentines for my favorite Italian. One of the things I love about making monotype prints is that no print is the same as the next and that you can pull a series of related prints with distinctly different feels. For this series I used a jacquard knit fabric, paper snowflakes, ink and oil paint. They are 5″ x 7″.
